In Aruba the water temperature is lovely, the sun is shining and guiding in the New Year with a plunge into the ocean is no hardship at all.
It has an important benefit: not only do you get rid of the hangover you might have from partying till early morning on the 31st; you will also get a bowl of Unox Erwtensoep with sausage as well. This is a Dutch traditional pea soup that will heat you up after your plunge and it will have you in terrific shape for more partying in no time flat.
"Unox Nieuwjaarsduik" or "New Year's Plunge" at Moomba Beach is the best cure for a hangover.
On January 1, at noon, 12 o'clock sharp, the signal for the plunge is given and swimmers will be racing off towards the ocean seeking eternal fame.
Participation is free of charge and everyone is welcome to join in.
