Beloved by: Would-be surfer bros into gadgets and gear.
Where to do it: Consistent wind and shallow waters make the island one of the world’s kitesurfing capitals (it’s like surfing with a kite to catch the wind). In the hub of the action, Hadicurari Beach, Aruba Active Vacations owner and former windsurfing pro Wim Eelens teaches athletes of all levels.

Stand-Up Paddleboard Yoga

Beloved by: Green-juice drinkers with eight-pack abs, Lululemon pants, and at least 1,000 Instagram followers.
Where to do it: The calm waters off the shores of Palm Beach will make full wheels and standing asanas that much easier; wade out with stand-up-paddleboard-yoga expert (yep, there's such a thing) Rachel Brathen.

FF Roading

Beloved by: Carhartt-clad former rugby players who’ve lost some muscle but not their affection for high-impact activities.
Where to do it: T Rent a two-person ATV from George’s Cycles and rumble around the island’s Arikok National Park. Stop at the ruins of a gold mill, then take a dip in Conchi, a natural pool in a crater surrounded by volcanic rock.
