A nine-mile stretch of award-winning pristine beach, turquoise seas, colonial Dutch architecture and a Latin vibe; Aruba is a delightful alternative Caribbean experience.


The southerly and westerly regions of Aruba are alive with resorts, shopping and nightlife. In the north, waves and wind sculpt rugged coastlines and limestone cliffs. At the heart of the island lies, Arikok National Park, which protects an expanse of desert landscape, towering cacti and natural wonders.


The feeling you get when you step on to the islands sunny shores is what truly sets it apart – locals call it the Aruba Effect, and it is all part of One Happy Island.
