It's blowing here in Aruba Northeast all year long, maybe some lighter days in the month of September-November and in the beginning of December. But that only means it won't blow every day over 15 knots. The chance you can kiteboard are always 90%. Don't forget your small kite sizes! Days of 25 knots are quite normal. Offshore winds, therefore it is quiet gusty.

Transport:
Car, Bus
Access:
Short Walk


Get directions from


Only in the high season (November until Easter) you need to reserve a rental car. Otherwise there are city buses (L10/L10A) going from downtown to the hotel area and minibuses to any destination. Pack tight as city buses are touchy about stepping aboard carrying luggage. Of course you can rent Scooters, Harleys, Squats/4wheeler, horses, bikes as well. Take the main island highway from the hotel area all the way towards the lighthouse look to your left at the end of the highrise hotel area. Accessible car or taxi, or a 10-minute walk from the last bus stop on Malmok.
