This is a beautiful place, really fun to climb the ruins. When you're reaching the top, there are some great views. It's worth the ride in my opinion.

We rented a car and drove arround the Island. My wife always wants more gold :-) so we decided to go look for the Gold mill ruins. We found some impressive ruins at the wild side of Aruba and explored them a little bit. Must have been a tremendous job to build this back in those times.

Had a great time climbing and exploring the ruins. It is fun to imagine what it used to look like when this was used as a 'fake' castle to deter pirates!

We stopped here on an ATV tour and it was pretty cool to hear the story behind it from the tour guide. Then we were able to climb through it. The views are beautiful and the stacked rocks in front of it along the water are pretty cool to see also.

I give this place an average score since to me, it had nothing that blew my mind. My favorite part of seeing this place is having the view of all the wishing rocks right by the cliffs. :)

My girls (12, 9) enjoyed climbing up the rocks, walls, ruins. Breezy and beautiful view from the inside ruin looking out to the ocean though the window opening.

If you heading out to visit the natural bridge, make this one of your spots, it takes about 30 minutes maximum to tour, the view is really good but it is literally ruins

fun place to stop on the " Wild side " . We will usually make a stop if we are riding ATV's . Get a cool drink and move on. Really not much else to do there

we had a fun day driving around at the wild side of the island visiting different locations, this particular site has a great view of the rough north side of the island.
