With the long, long winter we have experienced here in New York, Aruba sounds like the place to go! With its sandy beaches and clear water; I couldn't imagine a better place to visit. Aruba is located 15 miles north of Venezuela in the warm waters of the southern Caribbean. Aruba is home to 82 degree days and some of the nicest people in the world.
Getting to Aruba is pretty easy. You are able to take direct flights from major North American cities, or take a cruise with a southern Caribbean itinerary. After you get there, you’ll find friendly people, great transportation, safe drinking water, right-hand side driving and many of the comforts of home.
Beachgoers are able to relax on their comfortable lounges while swimming, snorkeling, waterskiing, tubing, parasailing,kite surfing, bananaboating, and all kinds of wet ‘n wild adventures are just steps away. The beaches that are along the winward coast are in more undeveloped and secluded areas. You will see coves carved out of limestone, inlets that have been formed by pounding, rowdy waves, one of a kind natural phenomena with uneven desert terrain.
Because of the strong undertow and crashing waves, swimming here is not recommended. Both coasts afford spectacular Caribbean views. All beaches are open to the public.
Aruba’s beaches include wide shaded expanses, quiet retreats, and busy sunbathing and water sports . Much of the seven-mile strip along the west coast is lined with resorts and packed with activity. So you are sure to find something to do no matter who you are.
