The surrounding area offers opportunities for dune surfing, while a nearby restaurant ensures no one goes hungry or thirsty. If you time your visit with early evening, you'll see a giant orange sun gently dropping into the sea.

  • Our first stop of the off road trip. The history behind this lighthouse is the reason it’s name is the California lighthouse. I’m not going to spoil it for you, visit it and see the amazing views...

  • Lighthouse was a very sturdy structure in great condition for being 110 years old. Walk up was a good workout... in a tight spiral staircase. Go when its not busy. A cab ride should do it. Restaurant was atop the hill too.
  • Is a must to visit in Aruba. On my first travel I visited during the day, on my second trip I visited during the night and worth every minute. Definitely is a different experience during the day and night. Recommend both scenarios.
