A vacation to Aruba, with its beautiful blonde sandy coastline and azure blue sea, is medicine for the soul. Renowned for its year-round sunshine, magnificent beaches and stunning luxury resorts, Aruba offers visitors the perfect blend of tranquility and excitement. Mingle with the friendly locals, sample divine international cuisine, go on adventurous deep-sea fishing excursions, windsurf the coastal waters off Malmok Beach, trek the massive sand dunes on the northeast coast, or simply soak up the sun on the beach as the water laps at your toes.
No matter what adventure you choose, it will be exhilarating! Kayak through mangroves in the morning, spend the afternoon swimming in rock pools or going wreck diving, and end your day horseback riding into the sunset along the shoreline. Peer at coastal vistas atop a 165-meter volcanic rock, Hooiberg; tour The Butterfly Farm or the Aruba Aloe Museum; and inhale the fragrant scent of local plants in bloom at Wilhelmina Park. Spend an entire day exploring Arikok National Park, covering 20 percent of the whole island, where the landscape is dotted with cacti, unique rock formations, caves and more. Escape to one of Aruba’s two private islands for a glorious day trip, notably Renaissance Island, exclusively available to guests of the Renaissance Aruba Casino & Resort—the flocks of flamingos will mesmerize you.
Immerse yourself in the dynamic culture of Aruba by strolling down the streets of its capital, Oranjestad, where you’ll be impressed by brightly colored Dutch colonial buildings, unique shops, interesting museums and galleries, and readily find a restaurant to satisfy any craving. Aruba’s lively nightlife is teeming with seaside lounges, beach bars and a plethora of action-packed casinos to keep visitors entertained. Aruba checks off all the boxes for a blissful beach getaway!
