Windsurfers: do we need a car in Aruba?

We will be there in May, my husband, my baby and me. We will windsurf almost every day. But I don't know if it's useful to get a rental car for 2 weeks?

As we need a place with a kitchen (for the baby...) I am not sure we can find sthg close to walking distance of the windsurf beach?

I myself would rent a car. It isn't that expensive and you can go as you please. As far walking distance to the area for windsurfing goes, try renting a timeshare at the Marriott Ocean or Surf Club. Do you have your dates yet?

If you are staying anywhere but right on Palm Beach i would want a car. Yes there are shuttles but with a baby i would want a car. You can get a small economy car thats not to expensive. What else would you do, cabs and walk?

The car seems like a good idea because of the little one. It will make your stay much easier.
