Ever ask yourself: where is Aruba? In the warm waters of the southern Caribbean, just outside of the hurricane belt, that's where. Our happy island.
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.
Aruba is home to beautiful beaches and warm waters. But what else do you know about Aruba? We’re guessing not these 16 facts.
Nestled in the heart of the Southern Caribbean, our happy island is a beautiful, sun-bathed speck on a vast azure sea.

When you touch Aruba it touches you back. It returns the love with warmth and kindness, natural treasures and surprises.
