Encompassing approximately 20% of the island, this wilderness preserve offers 21 miles of marked hiking trails, showcasing many of the island's native plants and animals, as well as Mount Jamanota, Aruba's biggest hill. A path from the national park parking lot leads to Cunucu Arikok, a restored farm at the foot of 500-foot Cero Arikok.. The park contains traces of nearly all the significant forces that have impacted on Aruba's history, including Arawak petroglyphs in the Fontein Cave, the remains of Dutch peasant settlements at Masiduri, plantation houses in the Prins Valley and the ruins of an old gold mining operation at Miralamar.
Bubali Bird Sanctuary
Two man-made lakes near the water treatment facility have become a nesting area for more than 80 species of migratory birds, including herons, egrets, gulls, skimmers, coots, cormorants, numerous species of ducks and more. An observation tower has been erected to allow birdwatchers to get a true birds' eye view.
Historic Gold Mines
In the 1400's and 1500's, adventurers traveled throughout the Caribbean in search of wealth and treasures. These ruins are an integral part in the development of Aruba. On the northern coast, midway down the island, are the Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins, which once processed ore during the nineteenth century. The Balashi Gold Mill was built at the tip of the Spanish Lagoon, and remnants of this once bustling mill are still visible in the picturesque setting near the narrow canyon of rocks known as Frenchman’s Pass.
The most famous of Aruba’s natural bridges loomed 25 feet above sea level, and was an awesome spectacle that existed for thousands of years. Early in September 2005 the bridge collapsed in just one evening, caused by the same wave action that originally carved out the limestone structure. Other natural bridges can still be viewed along the coast.
