Aruba is an exotic paradise located deep in the southern Caribbean Sea, although the island is just 20 miles long, it has plenty to offer. Aruba has all the things a Caribbean island should have – white sands, swaying palm trees, turquoise warm waters and everlasting sunshine.
Due to the continuous sunny weather, Aruba is also great for outdoor activities including watersports, horse riding, golf, cycling and beach tennis. For something more tranquil try yoga on the beach or stand up paddle boarding – or if you are feeling really brave, paddle board yoga!
Over in the capital Oranjestad, one of the islands most popular coastal resorts, glamorous high-rise hotels and trendy casinos line the sands. Oranjestad and the surrounding beaches are the perfect spots for shopping, relaxing in a beach bar or enjoying the buzzing nightlife. Find yourself a comfortable lounge chair, order an ice-cold cocktail and watch the sun dip down below the horizon.
Inland Aruba has lots to offer too like the beautiful Arikok National Park, with its varied landscapes from caves with Indian drawings, to sand dunes and beaches, to rough hills of volcanic lava formations and the natural pool, to the highest point in Aruba, a definite must-see. It's smiles all round on beautiful, laid-back Aruba, known as the Caribbean’s ‘Happy Island’ where you’ll receive a warm Aruban welcome.
