Aruba’s beaches offer a lot more than just snorkelling and diving. There is also plenty of action above the surface. Thanks to a strong and steady wind, the island is known as one of the best wind and kite-surf destinations in the Caribbean. Several of Aruba’s beaches offer excellent activities on the water, for both beginner and more experienced surfers.
Aruba’s beaches can roughly be divided into 2 categories: idyllic on the island’s west side and rugged on the east side. That means you will find beaches that are perfect for those who are learning to surf as well as beaches that will challenge even the professionals. These beaches are also worth a visit for those with no interest in surfing whatsoever. The acrobatic manoeuvres of the surfers in the waves offer impressive entertainment.
