Aruba, is a tiny Dutch Caribbean island off the coast of Venezuela.  Aruba is blessed with clear skies, bright sunshine (more sunny days than any other island!) and cooling trade winds practically every day of the year that cause the divi-divi trees to slope southwesterly.

 
 
In the summer I spent a week on the paradise beaches of Aruba and it was like stepping out of a magazine into paradise.
 
 
Here are 22 Pictures that will make you want to book a flight to this paradise island ASAP
