Kitesurfing - Aruba




Aruba lies in the heart of the southern Caribbean, 15 miles off the coast of Venezuela. At just 20 miles long and six miles across it's surrounded by wideopen seas that offer great adventure for any watersports fan.


From beginner to expert, you'll always find a suitable place to kitesurf in Aruba. The constant almost year-round trade winds, along with the variety of flat water locations and challenging wave conditions, have made Aruba a popular kitesurfing holiday venue. The shallow, warm waters make it a great learning spot and the island is also known for being one of the safest in the Caribbean, and for its friendly residents and beautiful beaches.


Between January and September the trade winds average between 17 and 28 knots. October to November sees a drop to between 11 and 19 knots. Air temperatures remain solid at 25°C. On one side of the island you get flat water and offshore winds, and on the other, onshore winds with waves. You'll find everything you need in Aruba's town areas.


The average temperature is a sizzling 23°C.


Aruba caters for the affluent traveller as well as those looking for a more moderately priced holiday. From luxury high-rise hotels to villas with private beaches through to affordable apartments. Many pool-side bars and restaurants have happy hours in the early evening and the mood really builds for the fun-seekers from there. In the evening in Aruba you'll be wined and dined and will generally find live music, exotic drinks, exciting shows and a welcoming atmosphere.


Aruba - Queen Beatrix (AUA): The airport is close to everywhere as the island is small. Daily flights land from all over the US as well as from the Caribbean, South America and Europe.


Most things on the island are within walking distance or at least within bus/taxi ride.
