Guests of the Divi Aruba Phoenix find that their favorite activity is, well, nothing at all! A wide sandy beach dotted with palms, thatch cabanas, and hammocks invites guests to relax to views of the Caribbean Sea.
Active guests enjoy classes at the Divi Aruba Phoenix health club and games at the squash courts. Poolside games and beach walks are held in the early afternoon, and are a favorite for families.
A full service activities coordinator is available to arrange island tours, snorkeling, water sports, and more.
The Links at Divi Aruba Golf Course and the Alhambra Casino are a short drive away. The Links offers preferred tee times for Divi guests.
The most noted activity in Aruba is, of course, anything one can do on the beach. Aruba offers some of the most dazzling white sand beaches in the Caribbean. The resort beaches including Palm Beach and Druif Beach are popular favorites.
Many choose Aruba as their vacation paradise specifically because of their love for glitzy and glamorous casinos! You can spend so much time in the lavishly appointed casinos, it can be hard to tell the difference between night and day!
A few casinos are open 24 hours a day. In general, opening hours are 11 a.m. for slots and 1 p.m. through early morning for table games. Hours vary seasonally, so please check before making plans. No one under 18 is allowed in the casinos.
The larger casinos feature live first class entertainment imported from other countries such as the United States and Latin America.
The constant 15-knot trade winds, along with the variety of flat-water locations and challenging wave conditions, have made Aruba one of the most popular spots on earth for windsurfers. Whether you're a beginner, an expert or anywhere in between, you can find a suitable location for your skill level.
Novices can take advantage of the gentler winds, abundance of rental equipment and instructors along the island's southern shore. Advanced students and experts have a choice of any number of prime locations along the northern and southeastern coasts.
Scuba diving and snorkeling is another favorite pastime in Aruba. Divers with Open Water Certification can enjoy the many diving sites Aruba has to offer; go wall diving, reef diving, or explore wrecks sunk during World War II. If a visitor prefers to remain close to the surface and snorkel, they may enjoy not only the beauty of the coral formations, but also the wreck sites with a visibility, at some sites, of 100 feet.
