Aruba Holidays

This tiny Dutch Caribbean island off the coast of Venezuela is a delightful mix of contrasts. Expect a laidback Caribbean way of life on an island where colourful European-style architecture lines the streets of the compact capital, Oranjestad. This is a place where white sands are framed by windswept divi-divi trees, cacti are scattered throughout the desert-like terrain of Arikok National Park and a rugged coastline combined with cooling trade winds come together to create the perfect conditions for windsurfing. Add in an ethnically diverse population, intriguing colonial history and a collection of high-end luxury resorts in the Palm Beach area and you have a unique island holiday destination.
