Manchebo Beach: one of the best surf spots in Aruba | Photo: PicturesOfAruba.blogspot.com

Located in the Caribbean Sea, only 27 km north of the coast of Venezuela, Aruba is a flat, riverless island of the Lesser Antilles, well known for its dreamy white sand beaches and Divi trees.

The tropical marine climate provides an average temperature of 28 °C (82.4 °F) all year round, moderated by constant trade winds from the Atlantic Ocean.

The hottest months go from May to October and the coolest from December to March.

The weather is one of the visiting cards of Aruba.

On average, the island receives yearly only 408.9 mm (16 inches) of rain, most of it falling from October through January.

Also, it lies on the southern fringes of the hurricane belt, so the likelihood of a direct hit is minimal.

The wind direction is prevailingly eastern, and the average wind speed is about 15 knots.

Arashi, Rodgers Beach, Dos Playas, Manchebo Beach, and Wariruri are the best surf spots in Aruba.
