This is a must see while in Aruba. It is what island swimming is supposed to be. It can get crowded, which stirs up the water, but if you wait a while, people leave and you can have it almost to yourself. Gorgeous, and a beautiful gem of a find.

This was pretty fantastic to see and experience. We had rented a jeep for our week in Aruba and so we did the ride to the Natural Pool ourselves. It is definitely worth seeing. In the parking lot there is a food and drink stand. I felt very safe in pool. I'd suggest bringing water shoes since there are some... More

We rented a jeep (2 girls) and navigated to the natural pool through the national park. Although we were able to get everywhere we needed to go in the jeep it was very rough. We entered by the wind turbines (if you go enter at a closer location to cut out some of the drive - unless you want the... More

We took a "jeep" tour there... the tour was fun with stops along the way and the pool was nice, too but just not that great. Luckily when we got there it was crowded with a couple of other tours but they left about shortly after we arrived. Pool has some fish in it and lots of crabs on the... More

The natural pool was one of the coolest places I have ever been. Breathtaking views, and a sight you will never forget. However, book a tour to take you there. It is impossible to get into your rental car and get there easily. There are no defined road signs to get there and mostly dirt, rocky roads. When we went... More

Hired a local to show us around the island and this was this was at the top of our list to visit. We were not disappointed. We swam at the natural pool, enjoyed the beauty of Gods creation. The only complaint is the roads to get there. You MUST have a 4wheel drive.

This was a jeep tour through DePalm tours and was a home run. Tour guide AJ was top notch and made the tour a success. Natural Bridge, Chapel and lighthouse area nice to see, but the off road ride and the natural pool were great

We didn't real use that this is a SEA rock pool within the National Park. The pool is very over rated for what it is and can be very crowded with all the trips going there. It's just a large rock pool with waves that crash over the rocks surrounding the pool. It is difficult to get into and out... More

This is a must see. Bring you water shoes as the rocks get slippery. Once in the pool, the sea swells crash over the top of the rocks and spray down over the pool. It's truly a cool experience. Can be dangerous.

Fun way to see Aruba. Ronald from De Palm tours was our guide and was great! Bumpy and wild but worth it! I would suggest water shoes for climbing down into the natural pool because it was very slippery. Beautiful scenery along the way so bring a camera.
