My wife and I visited the natural pool as part of our UTV tour. Beautiful setting and one of the highlights of our tour. If you are not on ATVs or UTVs this would be a challenge to get to. We wished we had watershoes since the entry to the pool is made of slippery rock. Not real easy for... More

We visited the Natural pool on our UTV tours. The pool was beautiful. We couldn't go swimming due to the uncommon but wild water (15-25 waves). We were still able to see the pool and enjoy it's beauty.

Luckily for us my husband is used to driving in rocky conditions. However, the girls in our group were scared and we got terrible weather so we could not swim. The view was breathtaking and worth the hike down and the bumpy drive! Considering this is the number one tourist attraction I'm surprised the Island has not made the road... More

Must have a 4x4 or better. I was scared out of my mind on route. We did not do a tour so we were "adventuring" thru. No doubt the terrain is challenging and requires a bit of patience and gumption to traverse. Fred drove...he said he would never do it twice. Once we finally reached the pool, I jumped into... More

We went here on our own and felt that was the best way to do it. We rented an ATV from Justin's and had no problem navigating to the natural pool. We arrived and there were 3-4 tours currently at the pool, and it felt somewhat crowded but then very shortly all left and we were left alone in the... More

Challenging to get to, waves can surprise you-go with an expert tour guide! I recommend Dave from Around Aruba Tours.

Fun but be careful. Maybe it was on the day that we went, but waters were quite rough and the currents were very strong. One lady almost got swiped into the rocks by the current. Rough terrain going down hill to the "pool". Recommend you take five fingers shoes or some type of wet shoe so you can have good... More

Joel and Gilbert were our fun and knowledgeable guides. The specially designed jeep ride down to the pool is not for the faint at heart..Safety was first during our swim at the Pool. we had lunch afterwards, included; loved it.

Rent a car and drive north! The north shore of Aruba is absolutely stunning! A wild and rough ocean pounds the coast too harshly to dip your toe into, but it is the ultimate spot to sit on a cliff, meditate and take in the energy of the ocean. Don't forget to stack rocks as high as you can and... More
