Experience true adventure at Aruba's most remote, yet also most popular nature attraction, the famous Natural Pool.

In a unique rock formation, volcanic stone circles a small depression, creating a tranquil pool: Aruba's Natural Pool.

On a deserted stretch of coastline, dramatic shows of water spraying over the rock occur on a regular basis as the tide rushes to shore. The unique natural pool is also known as 'Conchi' (bowl) or 'Cura di Tortuga' (Turtles Cove) and located inside Aruba's national Arikok Park.

The location of the Pool is surrounded by some of Aruba's most rugged terrain, so a visitor truly gets the feeling of having "discovered" something when they reach the site, either on foot, horseback or by 4x4. Due to the nature of the environment in this secluded area, the site is inaccessible by conventional car. Inexperienced drivers are encouraged to visit the pool on a jeep safari.

During the day, little snacks and drinks are sold at the top of the stairs that lead to the Natural Pool.
