Things to do in Aruba?

We will be going to Aruba on our next cruise.

Any ideas about the best sights/things to do on a day in Aruba?

Any and all suggestions most welcome. Thanks

Aruba is probably the most popular of the ABC islands and there are beaches as well as scuba diving there. They have a nice area around the port with lots of shops and an open market as well so it is a nice place just to wander the port and enjoy it. So whether you just wing it or take a cruise line excursion your options are pretty open.

Thanks OldGreyWolf we like to explore places on our own so it sounds like a good place to have a wander around the town and perhaps a visit to the beach

Hi CruiserKH,

If you would like to go to a nice beach, you just need to get off the ship and literally across the street you can find a very small bus station-just buy a cheap return ticket and you just hop on the bus for the area with the popular hotel resorts. The beach there is absolutely amazing and you have a variety of restaurants to choose from. Th port area is also very nice with quite a few high end shops, Cafes, Restaurants, Starbucks, etc.

Love the Beaches
