I decided to get up super early before my family woke up to go for a walk on the beach. We were staying at the Hyatt and I started walking North towards the Ritz Carlton. I then thought I heard that the Lighthouse was down that way, so I crossed over to the street and kept walking. Little did I... More

When I went to he light house, it was still under construction. It was very nice but you are unable to go inside the light house.

One of the visiting points on Aruba. Not able to get in because of renovation work. Just rent a car for a day and cruise around the island. Nice.

The drive to the lighthouse and the view from the base is the real treat here. The lighthouse is under construction and the base is not too eventful

If you want to see Aruba, visit the California Lighthouse. There are several very nice beaches that you can stop at on the way there and nice places to eat on the way back to your resort or vacation home. The nice "treats" truck offers frozen snacks and other things to drink. A fun and relaxing distraction while you get... More

This lighthouse is located on a very beautiful part of the island. The coastal scenery is amazing. There is also a restaurant very near to it.
