1. Eagle Beach
Stroll along Eagle Beach, named one of the best beaches in the Caribbean on TripAdvisor. It’s our longest stretch of pristine white sand and home to our iconic fofoti trees, many locals enjoy the popular public area just off the main road with ample parking, shaded picnic areas, and beach huts.
2. Jolly Pirates
Sailing aboard the teak schooners of the Jolly Pirates is one of the most popular things to do in Aruba. Spend the day swimming and snorkeling Aruba’s best undersea sites, launch yourself off our rope swing, and admire our picture-perfect sunset from just offshore.
3. Aruba Kitesurfing School
Aruba’s trade winds make it one of the best spots in the world for wind sports. While you’re here, take a kitesurfing lesson from one of our pros, where beginners can practice on soft sand beaches and catch their first air in our calm turquoise waters.
4. Horseback Riding
Depending on the route you choose, you can enjoy rides along our white-sand beaches, or over gorgeous, rugged terrain, all the way to Conchi, Aruba's Natural Pool.
5. Arikok National Park
Rent a jeep and explore Arikok National Park, a natural preserve that covers one-fifth of our island. There’s a lot of natural wonder to explore here, from breathtaking overlooks, secluded beaches and coves, rock formations, and ancient caves.
6. Guadirikiri or Fontein Caves
In Arikok National Park, discover these cool, shallow caves full of mysterious drawings that date back to Aruba’s early inhabitants, stalagmites and stalactites, and even the sudden, flapping wings of a nervous bat.
7. Beach Tennis
Along our beaches, you’ll see games of beach tennis, our national sport. A combination of beach volleyball and tennis, Aruba hosts one of the biggest beach tennis events in the world every November. Try it for yourself at one of the courts around the island.
8. California Lighthouse
The old stone California lighthouse stands as a silent sentry near Aruba’s northwestern tip. One of the highest elevations on the island, visitors walk, drive or cycle up at sunset from hotels on Palm Beach to get panoramic views of the island as sunshine gives way to a watercolor sky.
9. Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins
A popular stop on off-road and ATV tours, this abandoned gold mill on our northern coast is a fun way to imagine Aruba’s rich history, and a great opportunity for unique beach photos.
10. Casibari Rock Formation
