Experience Aruba with Fahy Travel

Aruba is a Caribbean island, so you can imagine what awaits you. Pristine and immaculate white sand beaches that are comfortable barefoot at any time of day, luminescent turquoise waters that give you a chance to cool off from the year-round balmy weather, averaging 30°C daily. Aruba is the Caribbean island with the most sunny days annually and is located off of the hurricane belt – so no safety concerns no matter what time of year you visit.

Secrets lie beyond those pristine white sand beaches for the adventurous. Aruba is the ship wreck diving capital of the Caribbean, due in part to the wreckage of the Antilla, a ship that was scuttled during WWII. It is an incredible site for not just the history buff, but for any fan of marine life as Aruba’s shores teem with coral, fascinating fish and more sea shells that you can fathom. If you prefer to be atop the water rather than under it, Aruba offers a wild variety of sea sports, and if being out at sea is still not for you, hop in a submarine for an underwater tour.
