The small island of Aruba possesses some of the finest beaches in the world, and is known as the wreck diving capital of the Carbibean.

At only 30 kilometres long and 10 kilometres wide, there are an astonishing 42 recognised dive sites, set in clear water with a constant temperature of 28C and visibility of up to 30 metres. With only a few shore dives, the majority of dives on Aruba are within a short boat ride. There are a number of famous wreck sites including the Antilla and the Pedernales. Other dives such as Malmok Reef, Barcadera Reef and Lago Reef are packed with schooling fish and dramatic coral formations.

For the non-diver there are fine restaurants and shopping plus plenty of off-the-beaten-track options.
