Nicknamed 'One Happy Island', Aruba is the choice for a last minute getaway

Aruba is just over nine hours from the UK, then you can be snorkelling in candy blue waters or simply spending your days lazing on a white sand beach. There are many beautiful seaside towns in Aruba that are ideal for a last minute holiday.

Oranjestad, the historic colonial city and capital, is sure to delight with its Dutch Caribbean charm. Its multi-ethnic influences are reflected in its pastel-coloured architecture, palm-lined streets and beachfront restaurants. White sand beaches, casinos, shopping malls and watersports such as snorkelling are all within walking distance.

If you prefer a more tranquil region with low-rise hotels then Druif Beach on the west coast of the island is just the place for you. Expect 11 kilometres of pristine white shores offering either perfect relaxation, watersports such as snorkelling, kayaking, fishing and sailing, or playing on one of Aruba's finest golf courses near the beach. For dining outside of your hotel, Oranjestad and Palm Beach are only a few minutes away from each other by taxi, providing lots of choice.

Palm Beach is an upscale seaside town filled with luxurious hotels, chic international restaurants and high-end stores and casinos. For the active holidaymaker try windsurfing or snorkelling and diving, including at the site of a World War II shipwreck. Those who prefer not to get wet can explore under the sea on the Atlantis Submarine.

The best time of year to book your last minute holiday

Some of the best deals to Aruba can be found by booking last minute, which is anywhere from eight weeks before your planned departure date to just before you want to go. You can save even more by visiting outside of Aruba's high season, which is December to April, coinciding with the dry season. During this period the temperature averages 28°C.

Low season is cheapest, ranging between June and October, making it worthwhile to book a last minute getaway then. However, keep in mind that low season is the wet season, so expect occasional rainfall, which reaches its peak in August, but fortunately Aruba is outside of the hurricane alley. If you're planning to travel during the wet season do a little research beforehand on rainy day activities.
