One Happy Island
Aruba’s white-sand beaches, cooling trade winds, and warm people are just a few reasons why so many people return to Aruba year after year.
Located 15 miles north of Venezuela in the warm waters of the southern Caribbean, Aruba is home to beautiful white-sand beaches, 82-degree days, and some of the friendliest people in the world.
On the interior of the island, you’ll find Arikok National Park, a desert-like preserve with a variety of wildlife, cacti and dramatic rock formations. You’ll also find some of Aruba’s most striking views, as the ocean crashes against the rugged shoreline below.
On the northeast coast, along with the windward shore, you’ll see Aruba’s unofficial mascots, the fofoti trees. The constant trade winds have permanently sculpted them into graceful, southwesterly bending forms.
One visit to Aruba and you’ll know why it’s known as
One Happy Island.

Aruba is 19.6 miles long and 6 miles across, with a total area of 70 square miles. Aruba is located just below the hurricane belt, and unlike many islands in the Caribbean, its climate is dry, so it rarely has a rainy day. On the south and west coasts of Aruba, you’ll find Oranjestad, the capital city, and miles of beaches that have been named some of the best in the world. Here, you’ll find most of the hotels and all-inclusive resorts in Aruba, and Queen Beatrix International Airport (AUA).
