Top 10 Quick Beach Getaways

Aruba

Everyone knows that Aruba’s beaches are among the best in the world, which explains the high rate of repeat visitors. The long, broad, white sand beaches are great for walking, while the almost constant breeze complements an always-sunny, hurricane-free island.

SPLURGE
The all-inclusive Occidental Grand Aruba resort has more activities than the island has Divi-divi trees, including sailing, snorkeling, and kayaking. Besides the casino and Las Vegas-style shows, there’s a ton of ethnic food options, from Caribbean fusion to classic Italian to pan-Asian. From $233 per person, per night; occidentalhotels.com/grandaruba

VALUE
If you’re looking for a quiet beach, no kids, and an environmentally friendly resort, the Bucuti Beach Resort Aruba is the place to stay. Ask for a room in the Tara Beach Suites, a wing of oceanfront suites that open right onto the beach. From $308/night, including breakfast; bucuti.com

GETTING THERE
Direct flights from Atlanta (3.5 hours); Chicago (5 hours); Miami (2.5 hours); New York (4.5 hours)
