Hudishibana 2

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating

Take in the best 360 island views of the island from the famous California Lighthouse. You can now even climb the top!

The old stone California lighthouse stands as a silent watchman in the area known as "Hudishibana," near the island's northwestern tip. It beckons visitors to the most spectacular views of the island.

The lighthouse was named after the S.S. California - which sunk previous to its construction in 1910. Perched on a high seaside elevation, the lighthouse has become one of Aruba's scenic trademarks and offers a picture perfect view of the island's western coastline of beaches and coral shorelines.

Any time of day or night is a great time to visit the lighthouse for a 360 degree view, yet the sunset is hands down the right time of day to be there as the big orange ball of fire gently dips into the Caribbean Sea. Keep your eyes open, you might see the green flash.

The lighthouse is now also open for tours, visit and book your ticket for $8,-

Refreshments are available or take in the full experience with a romantic lunch or dinner at the el Faro Blanco restaurant.
