What’s An Island Thing?

Distinctive Beachwear / Inspired Island Living

We think it’s more of a state of mind than an actual place. For some, it’s embracing the island-time lifestyle and taking time to enjoy the simple things and live in the moment; for others, it's a deep connection to the sea and with nature; for still others, it represents beautiful memories of vacations past (and vacations to come!) of white-sand beaches, crystal-clear waters, sitting under gently swaying palms, and sun-kissed skin…

We hope that the collections we have curated inspire you to find the spirit of the island lifestyle wherever you are in the world.

Sandy feet, salty hair, don’t care!

The collections you’ll find on An Island Thing are inspired by The Salamander Group’s boutiques on the island of Aruba, which have earned a reputation among both locals and island visitors for their quality service and signature excellent taste in resort wear, beachwear, souvenirs, accessories, home décor, gifts, and so much more.

The Salamander Group has been a trusted retailer in Aruba for more than 25 years and is a member in good standing with the Aruba Chamber of Commerce and the Aruba Hotel & Tourism Association.
