Not much to say, but it's a good landmark to help you figure out where you are when using the rental car company map (not so good). It's a big hunk of steel, though.

The anchor, a memorial to sailors, is just a very large anchor, but impressive. The location has a beautiful view over the east coast of Aruba, which is not much visited. Nice to see during a trip, but the anchor itself is not nice enough to go here.

Very nice memory to the Seamen. Close to Hotel California-- (the Aruba prison). Up the road you can feed the donkeys. Enjoy the site.

Drove right by it to baby and Rodger beach, never even thought "good photo opportunity" so certainly not worth a special trip, just remember to snap a photo if u can bear to delay the long drive to baby beach ( totally worth the trip with little kids to snorkel)....eat at big mamas

I wouldn't go just for the anchor but stopped in my way to Baby Beach for a quick pic. Nice tribute and a good picture spot!!

On the way to Baby Beach. Good place to stop and take in the sights - the rocky East shoreline, some amazing cacti, and maybe you'll see some donkeys and/or goats wandering about.

It's on the drive to Baby Beach. Yeah, it's there, but unless you or your family are seafarers, it's not worth the drive for it alone.

This attraction has a very nice view on the sea and it is great for taking pictures. It is on the road to baby beach, which I recommend to every one.

We stumbled upon the anchor when leaving Baby Beach to return to Oranjestad. There isn't much to see at this spot other than the anchor but its bright color definitely makes it stand out and create beautiful pictures of your Aruba visit! Definitely worth the stop!
