With an eight-hour flight to get to this gorgeous island, I didn’t expect to see so many kids in Aruba.  We had gone before actually having kids, but noticed how many fun things for families to do.  The beautiful kid friendly beaches are just one reason to make your next family vacation in Aruba. The entire island is only about 6 square miles, so it’s really easy to get from one end to the other at just about any time of day. Everywhere you look is a breathtaking, and diverse,  landscape.  On the south side is tranquil turquoise water lapping bright, white sand beaches.  On the north side is a rocky, desolate, and treacherous shore with cliffs and overhangs carved from powerful waves crashing into the rock.  (I would avoid this area with kids under 10) The interior of the island is desert with beautiful cactus and rock formations.  I joked that you could film an Old-West film here and lie under palm trees on the beach between takes.  In fact, palm trees are only in the resort areas, and only because the resorts plant and maintain them.  They are not native here.
