Aruba Geography

Aruba is (for the most part) a dry and flat riverless island famous for its white, sandy beaches on the western and southern coasts.


The eastern edges of the island are exposed to higher winds, consequently they have fewer sand beaches, much rougher seas and a rocky coastline.

The island's interior features some scattered rolling hills, including Hooiberg, at 165 me (541 ft), and Mount Jamanota, the highest on the island at 188 meters (617 ft).
