Enjoy the Bournemouth Air Festival at Aruba

Our location right on the beach means you'll get the perfect view of the action from Thursday August 29th to Sunday September 1st.

Come to Aruba Beach Bar and Restaurant during the Bournemouth Air Festival (August 29th to September 1st) and you can enjoy some of the best views of the action from your table.

The festival is, of course, the UK’s biggest air show, with more than 8 million visitors since its debut in 2008. As you can imagine, things get busy, both down on Bournemouth beach and up on the clifftop vantage points.

Don’t leave it to chance and find yourself without somewhere to sit and head up and enjoy either lunch or dinner with the family. With so much to see at the air festival, we’re expecting yet another bumper year on the beach with large crowds. Highlights of the festival include:

  • The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight
  • Strikemaster Pair display
  • Red Devils Parachute Regiment Freefall team
  • And out on the water, a flotilla of Royal Navy Ships.

It’s the biggest free event in Bournemouth as summer winds down. Come and enjoy the spectacle, but don’t forget to secure your favourite spot for lunch or dinner at Aruba!


Lunch tables are walk in only, with maximum 1 1/2 hours allocated at the tables. Bookings are being taken from 6pm onwards daily.
