This tour offers a bit of the traditional scenic highlights of Aruba as well as something unique. From the pier, you will first travel to the oldest lighthouse on the Island, the California Lighthouse which is located on Aruba's windward coast. En route, you will pass by the area of tourist resorts that dot the coastline. After a stop for photos, you will continue on across the island's arid terrain which is the home of cacti, divi-divi trees, iguanas and wild goats.

Your next stop is the Casibari Rock Formations, a group of large diorite and granite boulders found nowhere else in the Caribbean. From here, you will drive past the Bushiribana Gold Smelter ruins, which are located close to where gold was discovered in 1824. Next it's on to your third stop, an island ostrich farm. Enjoy a guided tour of the farm and get acquainted with these interesting, flightless birds during your visit.

Before returning to the pier in Oranjestad, you will make a final stop at the beautiful Baby Natural Bridge, situated next to the former Natural Bridge, which was Aruba's premier attraction until its collapse in 2005. This spot vividly demonstrates the powerful forces of the sea, which over the years has carved through coral and lime stone, creating amazing formations and arches in the rocks.
