Photo Op

Nice remembrance of Seamen and a good photo op with the bright red anchor against the beach backdrop. A good stop on the way to Baby Beach.

Nicely restored large anchor close to Boca Grande. Makes a great picture and a very nice memorial. Takes just a minute and well worth it.

If you are on Aruba this is where you need to take a picture. The background is amazing when you stand on the anchor

If you are driving on the south part of the island, this is a good photo spot in the fork in the road. There are some nice views. A five Minute spot!

This is a tribute leading up to baby beach for sailors. It's a nice thing to see and take a photo of, but not really a major attraction. Stop for a moment though and take a look, then look at the beautiful scenery around you and the ocean behind it. Then look to your left in the distance at the... More

We stopped to take some photos on our way back to the high rise hotels from Baby Beach. The anchor is huge and there were nice views of the east cost with a number of kite surfers in the water. This is not a place to specifically go to but if you are in the area it is a nice... More

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
