Aruba’s varied geography boasts white sandy beaches along its idyllic south coast, rugged cliffs and black pebbles in its tempestuous north and a striking red, arid interior of rock formations and cacti. Just 15 miles from South America, Aruba offers year round sun and cooling trade winds, making it one of the most temperate of the Caribbean islands.
