Our Island

In the warm waters of the southern Caribbean, just outside of the hurricane belt, is Aruba. Our happy island. Our home.

Only 19.6 miles long and six miles across, our beautiful speck of powdery-white sand is a paradise shaped by the sea—an island that embraces you with warm sunny days and even warmer, sunnier people.

To the south and west, Aruba is alive with resorts, shopping, and nightlife. To the north, waves and wind sculpt rugged coastlines and limestone cliffs. And in our heart, Arikok National Park protects a sprawling landscape of desert sand, towering cacti, and natural wonders.
