Aruba Nightlife

You’ll never need to wait until the sun goes down on Aruba to get the party started. The revelry starts early at beach bars and resort happy hours where live music or DJ-driven sounds shake the sunbathers out of their tropical relaxation mode and into barefoot-bopping in the sand. And chances are good on any given week that there will be some kind of day party happening because of one of the

many celebrations this island has going on all year long. There are about 50-some annual events—carnivals, regattas, sporting competitions, national holiday fêtes, seasonal celebrations, and music, food, wine, and art festivals each year—so whenever you visit, there’s bound to be some daytime fun and dancing in the streets or on the beaches.

But once the moon rises and the tiki torches are lighted, you will notice a shift in mood from happy party time to high-octane energy. And if you follow the sounds of music along the high-rise strip or in downtown Oranjestad, you’re bound to find a happening that suits your style, be it kicking back in a cozy lounge or dancing ’til dawn. You can easily hop from scene to scene on foot in both places, or take a barhopping bus to discover where the nights really move, along with a wild and crazy crowd. Taxis are easy to find, and the party scene is compact, so there is no need to wander far.
