But don’t think lying in the sun is the only thing you can do here. Here are some ideas what solo traveler guys will certainly enjoy while visiting Aruba.

Balashi Brewery Tour
One of the best activities in Aruba for single guys is to see how they make their excellent local brew. The brewery offers simple but interesting tours for as little as $10 USD. You get a beer to sample at the end of the tour for this price. Tours run in the mornings as the building gets toasty in the afternoon sun.
This brewery has an appealing building entrance in a flower garden. The beer garden also provides good eats and drinks if you arrive early enough to grab lunch or stay after the tour for an early dinner. The tour itself may not be anything to write home about, but you do climb up a stairwell to a catwalk above the factory floor. From here you can take in the entire bottling operation by walking down the length of the factory. It allows you to observe the machines and people managing the bottle washing, labeling operations, and packing processes below.
Adrenaline junkies will certainly enjoy the thrill of attempting skydiving while here. The SkyDiveAruba outfit operates a Cessna 182 plane that has been retrofitted exactly for skydiving. They use a breath-taking drop zone immediately adjacent to a stunning powdery sand beach fronting the aquamarine Caribbean Sea. The company encourages you to bring your friends or family to watch your big landing on the beach. The plane can take no more than two of the thrill-seeking single guys at a time for safety reasons.
The greatest Aruban playground for surfing (either windsurfing or kite surfing) is called The Huts or sometimes Fisherman’s Huts in Hadicurari Beach. It used to be the Aruban fishermen’s home and so was named for the little huts they dwelt in here. Now it is the most beloved place on the island for learning and practicing your kite or windsurfing activities.
There are a number of kite surfing and wind surfing schools found here. You can also rent paddleboards and other non-mechanized water sports gear here. The island also hosts a huge annual windsurfing event here called the Aruba Hi-Winds. This remains the biggest such windsurfing event in the entire Caribbean Sea. It takes place every June to July at the beaches along the Fishermen’s Huts. Because the waters here are so extremely shallow and sheltered here, the sandy stretch proves to be beloved by local Aruban families with their children in tow.
The most incredible natural beauties of Aruba are hidden and found well off of the main paved roads of the island. You can take these in easily by booking an All-Terrain Vehicle tour. The guides will lead you on a day trip adventure out into the wild side of the island. You will see rugged coasts, rolling arid deserts, and the rocky windward coasts where they will turn you loose to explore the area.
Gamble at a casino
A trip to Aruba for single guys is not complete without at least one exciting night in one of the beautiful gambling establishments for which the island has become justifiably famous over the years. Every major resort on the island boasts its own in-house casino that will operate from around noon till almost sunrise. They have machines that will take U.S. coins and bills (or tokens denominated in the same).
The island casinos provide beloved games including roulette, blackjack, crabs, poker, baccarat, and even the local invented Caribbean Stud Poker. Besides all of this standard casino action, these fine establishments offer themed nights with events, tournaments, sports book, day time bingo games, and nightly entertainment with prizes.
Aruba Nightlife for Singles
On an Aruba solo travel trip guys are definitely looking for the wild nightlife party scene where they can hook up with the lovely local and tourist ladies. If this is one of your primary goals while on holiday here, then you need to realize that the island’s single nightlife area revolves around Palm Beach. L.G. Smith Boulevard is the primary bar strip in town.
The party scene especially comes to life in November when the island sponsors its renowned Electric Festival Island Takeover party. If you can’t plan your trip in November, then try out one or more of the following cocktail bars or romantic restaurants:
• Windows on Aruba
• El Gaucho
• Barefoot at L.G. Smith Boulevard
• Passions on the Beach
• 2 Fools and a Bull
• Iguana Joe’s at L.G. Smith Boulevard
• CILO City Lounge at L.G. Smith Boulevard
