WHAT YOU VISIT
Natural Bridge
This coral limestone formation was chiseled by years of pounding waves and powerful winds. Standing 23 feet (7 meters) and spanning over 100 feet (30 meters), it is one of the longest natural bridges in the world and a popular attraction on the island. In 2005, the bridge collapsed to the dismay of locals and tourists alike, but the area is still picturesque, and the waves crash dramatically over the ruins.

Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins
In the 1400s and 1500s, Aruba held the promise of golden treasure, and prospectors flocked to the island to strike it rich and shape the island's history. Legend says Aruba was called 'Oro Ruba,' which means red gold. Situated on the northern coast, an abandoned mill once processed ore from the nearby mines. In 1824, gold was discovered in Aruba, and in total the island produced three million pounds of gold.

Alto Vista Chapel
A winding road dotted with crosses brings you to the top of a hill on Aruba's north shore, where this brightly painted, yellow chapel stands proudly. In the early 18th century, Catholic Indians settled in the area, and the original chapel was built by an Indian from Santa Ana de Coro, Venezuela, in 1750. The present chapel was completed in 1952 and is also known as "Pilgrims Church."

California Lighthouse
Named after the steamship California, which sunk off the coast of Aruba, this iconic old-stone lighthouse, built in 1910, offers picture-postcard views of the expansive coastline.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
Take in Aruba's dramatic, diverse landscapes - from arid terrain studded with cacti and stunning rock formations to sparkling white-sand beaches fringed by lush foliage.
