On the Water in Aruba

The turquoise water of Aruba’s southern Caribbean sea embraces our happy island like a hug.

As warm and beautiful as the Aruban air above, it bursts with life and activity. Its crystal clear depths home to vibrant reefs and wrecks just waiting to be explored by snorkelers and scuba divers.

Above, kite and windsurfers harness world-class winds off Malmok Beach, while snorkelers, water skiers, and swimmers enjoy the protected shoals to the south and west. Off our eastern shores, crashing waves sculpt craggy cliff faces, leaving their mark on a happy island defined by the beautiful sea.
