About
Aruba's Natural Bridge collapsed on September 2, 2005. Aruba's stunning geological formation where years of erosion from the sea has carved its way through coral rock forming a 100 foot bridge, 25 feet over the sea, which is the largest of its kind in the Caribbean. Next to the collapsed bridge is now the Baby Natural Bridge which offers great photo opportunities. The site also offers a bar, restrooms and shopping. The area is beautiful for walking or cycling.

Baby Natural Bridge is next to the former natural bridge, which was one of Aruba's most popular attractions until its geological collapse in 2005. The bridge is a formation of coral limestone and attracts many tourists. Wondrous sight. Nature at its most fascinating. There are several other naturally made bridges on the island but none are as popular as the Natural Baby Bridge since it is near the collapsed original Natural Bridge. There is no fee for this Aruba attraction and it’s worth the effort to view. There’s a gift shop and a refreshment shop nearby as well as a restroom for a fee.

We stopped by the natural bridge site along with about 10 busloads of fellow tourists, so needless to say the area was crawling with people while we were there. It was difficult to get a picture without someone in the fame. I would loved to have seen the original natural bridge prior to its collapse because the new "Baby" bridge though interesting is not particularly spectacular. In addition there was quite a bit of garbage floating in the water near the bridge and so the natural beauty of the area is somewhat blighted. The rugged coastline and the seascape at this location was for me a more interesting site than the natural bridge.

I have been taking pictures here since the 80s. When the original bridge cracked in the mid 2000s it was so sad. Seeing the site and the smaller baby natural bridge along with museum is worth the drive. There is a museum at the site and just up the road are the Gold Mine ruins and Natural Pool. It is worth seeing it at least once.

We came here as there was a geocache to find. Both were pretty disappointing. The good natural bridge collapsed quite a few years ago and the remaining one just isn’t that exciting. If it is part of the tour, fine, but if you are on your own, don’t bother. It was so unexciting I didn’t even take a picture of it.

the natural bridge broke off due to hurrican per our tour guide on de plam tours . but when we visited we got out and we were able to walk through and take pictures of the shoreline , the ocean slamming through the rocks , little pools of salt , we saw a bright blue lizard , it was pretty neat .
they had a bathroom in the area , but you have to pay $1 to use it.

I enjoyed visiting this location, because of how peaceful this area seemed. Was not crowded, nothing special, just waves crashing upon the shore. The fierceness of the waves made this experience something I could have watched all day. Glad I had this experience.

Read other reviews..if you are on a cruise ship and Aruba is your port do not waste your time to view the Natural Bridge, find a different excursion. This only takes about ten minutes to see unless you desire to sit and feel the splash of the waves or day dream and think. Only visit if you are on the island for several, three or more, days.

Came here as part of an island tour. The bridge is only half there as it's suffered damage during an earthquake a few years ago so the "bridge" section is much shorter and much of the area is closed off for safety reasons. Still one of the main stops in Tr park, with a fair sized gift shop and pay toilets ($1).

It’s a cool drive to see the other side of the island, stop at some of the inlets on the way to broken bridge. The natural bridge is broken but cool to see for 5 mins. Very busy with tourists. The store/rest stop seems very tourist trap like. Prices high, food terrible and expensive, pay to use bathroom. If your paying someone to take you here or on a tour pack snacks so you don’t have to spend money here!!!!

Natural Bridge and Gold Era Ruins can be found by driving 20 minutes to the rough side island.

Here you will find Aruba’s largest natural bridge collapsed with but the smaller one still standing. This is a good spot to watch the waves crash high. If you drive 5 minutes north of the ruins, park and walk a little there is a better bridge you can go under. THe views on this side are amazing. Try a sunrise here!

We were lucky to be here on a day where there were brisk winds, causing a great surf. The new natural bridge was easily visible as were the remains of the prior one. It’s a great stop to see nature at its finest.
