Aruba is warm all year, 28-32┬░C. At night it doesn't cool down at all, it's only the sun missing, but the wind stays, so it can get a little chilly. You can count on some hotter days during the summer months (July, August, September). Aruba is mostly dry, even in the rainy season, the rain doesn't really last longer than 10 min. The water temperature is around 27┬░C, so no wetsuit needed.

It's blowing here in Aruba Northeast all year long, maybe some lighter days in the month of September, October, November and in the beginning of December. But that only means it won't blow every day over 15 knots. The chance you can kiteboard are always 90%. Don't forget your small kite sizes! Days of 25 knots are quite normal. Offshore winds!



How to get there

Car, Bus
Access
Short walk

Only in the high season (November until Easter) will you need to reserve a rental car. Otherwise there are buses going from downtown to the hotel area and minibuses to any destination. Of course you can rent Scooters, Harleys, Squats/4weeler, horses, bikes as well. The spot is a mile north from Fisherman's Hut. Take the main island highway from the hotel area all the way towards the lighthouse look to your left at the end of the housing area. Accessible car or taxi, or a 10-minute walk from the last bus stop on Malmok.
