Scuba Diving and Snorkeling

Wreck, reef and shore diving are popular pastimes in Aruba, which is considered the wreck-diving capital of the Caribbean. The south coast features 20 dive sites and 11 wrecks, all stunning spots to explore the island’s underwater beauty. Aruba has several dive operators offering PADI-certified instruction and refresher courses.

Windsurfing and Kitesurfing

Thanks to year-round trade winds that average 15 knots, Aruba’s Hadicurari Beach is where windsurfers and kitesurfers head to ride the waves. Not surprisingly, Aruba hosts the Caribbean’s longest running windsurfing event, the Aruba Hi-Winds, every July

Watersports

In addition to windsurfing and kitesurfing, Aruba offers the usual array of pulse tingling on the water adventures, including Jet Ski and Waverunner rentals, banana boat rides and jetpack experiences. For lower-key adventure, there’s kayaking, standup paddle boarding and catamaran sailing.

Off-Road Safaris

Whether you’re strapped into an ATV, UTV or 4x4 Jeep, an off-roading adventure across Aruba’s rugged terrain is an exhilarating experience. Several operators offer off-road safaris featuring stops at favorite island attractions like the Ostrich Farm and Natural Bridge.

Hiking

Arikok National Park features 21 miles of rugged hiking trails, including ambitious climbs to the top of Hooiberg and Yamanota, Aruba’s two highest points. The reward? Stunning views of rock formations, cacti and an array of flora and fauna.

Deep-Sea Fishing

Half day and full day deep-sea fishing expeditions delight those who angle for adventure. The catch could include marlin, sailfish, shark, yellow fin tuna and other prized game fish.

Golf

Ready to sharpen your golf swing? Head to the Links at Divi Aruba for nine holes on lovingly landscaped terrain or mix it up with 18 holes on the desert course at Tierra del Sol.
