If your perfect vacation day includes soaking up the sun, playing in the sand, or swimming in the ocean, then our Aruba guide is just what you need. Our 10Best list highlights the best places to soak up the sun, with Arashi Beach being a favorite of our editors and readers. Turn off the laptop, pack your beach attire, and get ready for a relaxing day of taking in rays. Be careful not to get sunburned, though. Aruba’s sun can be feisty, even in the shadows of a beach cabana, or on a cloudy day. So, grab your hats and sunblocks, and roll out your beach towels for an all natural tan, or dive into that crystal clear water to cool off. Not in the mood for sitting back and relaxing? Jump on a surfboard and crash the waves of Hadicurari. There’s enough watersport activity taking place near the Fisherman’s Huts to please any surfer; kitesurfer, windsurfer... Even water skiers, sailors and paragliders. Honeymooners and romantic couples are sure to find a perfect hideaway somewhere between the mangroves and Aruba’s vibrant marine life. And families with little kids can opt for beaches with shallow waters, plenty of shaded places and facilities.
