There’s a special word in Papiamento, the native language of Aruba, heard quite a bit on the island. The word is “dushi,” and it translates simply to “sweetheart.”
Aruba is the most romantic island in the Caribbean, bathed in warmth and love. Whether you’re looking to fall in love on one of our gorgeous white-sand beaches or rekindle the flame within the confines of a secluded cove, you can rest assured, because our island is the truly ideal destination for setting the right mood. Snuggle up together and toast your love on a luxury sunset sailing cruise, enjoy a couples’ massage on the beach amongst the cooling touches of our rejuvenating trade winds, or sink into intimate conversation with a torch-lit, toes-in-the-sand, beach-front dining experience like no other. Whatever romantic experiences you seek, you’re bound to find them right here in Aruba.
Adventurous couples can find that perfect secluded spot to snorkel hand in hand, give tandem parasailing a try, and enjoy a helicopter ride with an unforgettable view of paradise. Or, hike to a secluded cove in Arikok National Park and discover dramatic views, as the waves crash against the rocky shoreline.
Couples can reconnect by doing it all, or simply by doing nothing at all. We have Keith and Patty Lindsey from Washington, D.C. as an example, who have visited 13 times in 12 years. See their story here.
Aruba is the perfect place to rekindle romance, celebrate an anniversary, pop the question, enjoy a Caribbean honeymoon or even get married! To plan a romantic escape of your own, take a look at all of the Things to Do in Aruba.
