Aruba is the sort of destination that positively sings to those lucky enough to find their way to its shores. This is a small but perfectly formed Caribbean island that serves up one delight after another delight, from its 19 miles of white-sand beaches to the unbeatable relaxation of its spas and the gorgeous food of its restaurants. In between all of that serenity is no shortage of adventure, and the tightrope between the two is also traversed in the form of SUP (stand-up paddling).
The slogan “One Happy Island” is very accurate, as Aruba is an island that beams with cheer. Why wouldn’t it? If flamingos prancing around on white sand backed by glistening blue water isn’t heaven, what is? These are the best things to do in Aruba, the happiest island in the Caribbean.
