The One Happy Island is well known for housing one of the world’s top rated beaches (Eagle Beach!), but the fun doesn’t stop by the seashore.

Discover 5 motorized activities, along with our recommendations, that are perfect options for the adventure seekers visiting Aruba.

Let’s get the engines started!

1. Get on a Bike: Motorcycles & Trikes

If you and your crew don’t mind bringing the noise, and by noise I mean rumbling sounds of powerful 2, or 3-wheeled  motor vehicles, to your Aruba excursions, then you should get on a bike!

The term ‘fun in the sun’ is maximized when you add a motorcycle or trike tour to your Aruba adventures.

2. Go Off-roading with UTVs & ATVs

Plenty of fun awaits (not to mention beauty too!) when it comes to off-roading in Aruba with ATVs or UTVs, but don’t forget to respect the island’s natural terrains by not driving on the sand dunes, littering, or stacking rocks.

In case you were wondering what the differences are  between ATVs & UTVs, here they are: ATV stands for All-Terrain-Vehicle, and you sit on (hello bronzed bod) the motorized vehicle. Whereas UTV, a.k.a Utility-Task-Vehicle, is a vehicle with a top (hello sun protection) that you sit in.
