Simple lighthouse where Atlantic and Caribbean meet. We went by bike and then road the bikes down to the dunes beach on the Atlantic ocean

Great to visit to get a big view of Aruba. Also a juice fruit section and a restaurant. Ride on a tour or rent a electric bike or bicycle.

Just another lighthouse,especially if you've seen the many along the eastern coast of the USA.
We were nearly at the end of our De Palm off-road tour when we came to the California Lighthouse and it just didn't stand out as one of the highlights of our tour.
Perhaps,if you're not too familiar with lighthouses you will enjoy this stop but,I would not go out of my way to make this a necessary stop on a visit to Aruba.

Whenever I am in Aruba, I make at least one trip up to California Point and Lighthouse. It is a truly spectacular view from there, although, in recent years it has become extremely crowded with tour buses and ATV's. I realize that everyone is, for lack of a better word, "entitled" to experience a historic place in Aruba and to enjoy the view-it has become a "Tourist Trap". And by that I mean, people run amok with total disregard for others or vehicles that are driving in and out.

My advice is if you plan to go here-either go early in the day before the tour buses and ATV's. Then you will have an incredible view and some room to move. It truly is a beautiful place.

We did not do the tour, which only run a few times per day. Other than the lighthouse there is a restaurant and nice views of the Nord end of the island. Cool to visit but don't plan on spending a lot of time there.
