Virtually non-stop wind, stunning beaches, and clear blue water, make Aruba an ideal destination for kitesurfers who want to kite daily.  Aruba also offers a wide variety of activities for those days without wind, or if the muscles just need a break from lots of kiting!  Partying, snorkeling,  kayaking, canoeing, stand-up paddling, sunbathing, yoga, biking, scuba diving, shopping, nature viewing, swimming in the natural pools, caving, hiking, boating, windsurfing, riding at the artificial wave park, and last but not least visiting the donkey sanctuary, are all fun activities to do in Aruba.

There are a handful of kiteboarding schools along the beach near the resorts (Fisherman`s huts).   Aruba Kite Surfing School was one of the first schools in Aruba; they provide excellent personalized lessons (ask for Lysander).  Surf lessons and kitesurfing excursions are also available with Aruba Kite Surfing School.
