Aruba's answer to South Beach is just steps from downtown Oranjestad on Surfside Beach. This upscale hot spot is party central on weekends with the island's hottest DJs and crowds of dancers under techno lights inside and right on the beach. During the day, it's a whole different scene—sleek and sophisticated—with VIP bottle service, an international bites menu, and fancy frozen cocktails. You'll often spot the beautiful people lounging in for-rent cabanas and daybeds or in the massage loungers in the seaside pool. Reflextions offers luggage storage and free transportation to the airport once you've checked out of your hotel if you want a few more hours of beach time before you return home. It's also a very popular spot for private parties, so call ahead to make sure they're open to the public.
