Curacao is the biggest island with most facilities, such as shopping, golf, historical sites, a lively nightlife, etc. Tiny Aruba has a laid back atmosphere with great beaches and is the best place to relax and enjoy a peaceful (and sunny) vacation. So your choice for the best island to stay depends on your diving and non-diving wishes:
- Bonarie: diving capital with amazing, healthy reefs.
- Curaçao: the largest of the three “ABC islands” (Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao). Pretty good diving, colorful Willemstad and some cultural and historical sites.
- Aruba: the smallest island, focused on watersports, couples and family holidays.
See the individual sections on the islands below to determine which one you like the most.
Whatever your choice, your vacation will be relaxing and sunny!
