Driving Tips

Route 1 is one of the most important roads on the island when you rent a car on Aruba. It runs from Cura Cubai in the south all the way to Arashi Beach in the north. This route is around 27 km (16.8 miles) long and you can drive it in just 40 minutes. Much of the north coast of the island is a national park and has limited access to rental vehicles, though smaller roads take you to beaches and inlets from Route 3 and Route 6.

Top 4 Architectural Sights

  • Bushiribana Ruins
  • California Lighthouse
  • Fort Zoutman
  • Chapel of Alto Vista

The Bushiribana Ruins are the remnants of a gold mine from the 1800s overlooking a rocky beach. It is a great stop off point on your way to the Aruba Natural Bridge. To the very north westerly point of the island is the impressive California Lighthouse that has recently been restored in celebration of its centenary. You can take a tour of the lighthouse or visit this spot purely for the incredible sunsets over the Caribbean Sea. Fort Zoutman is the oldest structure on the island dating back to 1798. The fort now houses the Historical Museum of Aruba that covers the early history and development of the island. Though small the Alto Vista Chapel stands out for its simplicity and situation. Painted in a stark yellow the chapel is perched on a hillock with impressive views over the sea.

Top 4 Natural Sights

  • Aruba Natural Bridge
  • Arikok National Park
  • The Conchi Natural Pool
  • Ayo and Caibari Rock Formations

The Aruba Natural Bridge was a natural wonder that tragically collapsed in 2005. The site of the former natural bridge is an impressive place that tourists still flock to, and a smaller coral bridge still stands next to it. Arikok National Park covers just under 20% of the island. If you can manage the hike, try to get to Arikok hilltop where you can get a view of the entire island! Inside the park is the Conchi Natural Pool, it is protected by rocks from the rough seas of the east coast and makes a stunning swimming spot. The driving route is very poor and not suitable for your rental car but we highly recommend the hike or a guided tour. The Ayo and Caibari Rock Formations are monolithic boulders with walking trails and steps built especially for visitors. The earliest settlers of the island were the Arawak people who visited the Ayo formations and carved petroglyphs in the rock.
