California Lighthouse Aruba

 

 

 

If you are planning a trip to the island of Aurba, don’t miss out on a visit to one of the most visited historical landmarks of the area. Called the California Lighthouse, the site offers wondrous views of the coastline and the surroundings in addition to being a historically significant monument.

Location: The California Lighthouse is located in the Northwestern tip of Aruba in an area called Hudishibana (an Aruban Indian name) by the locals. The original location of the lighthouse on the map would show to be near the White Sand Dunes in Oranjestad. The famous golf course of Tierra del Sol is also located nearby.

 

Origin: The California Lighthouse was built somewhere around the 10th century by a famed French architect. The lighthouse owes its unique name to the steamship Californian, which crashed on the rocks near the lighthouse before it was fully constructed.

Ever since then, the California Lighthouse has stood as a sharp reminder of that fateful day and acts as a decoy, warning ships if they tend to come too close to the rocky coastline.

Structure: The lighthouse is surrounded by stone pavements that lead to the sand dunes at one end and the mighty ocean front at the other. The lighthouse is located at an elevated point and it is possible to catch wonderful views of the sand dunes, sandy beaches and the rugged coastline from the base itself. Mejores Opiniones y reviews

Unlike other lighthouses which allow tourists to climb to the top, the California lighthouse does not allow visitors inside and is barricaded at the entrance. Windows situated around the lighthouse tower can be found to have cracks and holes that were the cause of local vagabonds and inquisitive tourists trying to get a peek inside. The walls of the tower are rusted at places which leaves you with a good idea as to why the tower was closed to the public in the first place.

Nearby Attractions: The best way to visit the California Lighthouse would be via a tour around Aruba that takes you to almost all of the attractions the island has to offer. A restaurant located near the lighthouse (called La Trattoria el Faro Blanco) was closed down following a suicide in the area and is in the process of reopening its business.

The rocky coastline is filled with a variety of corals and it takes just a short walk through the shallow waters to see some really spectacular underwater corals and  reef. And the Tierra del Sol golf course is quite nearby if you want to engage in a game of golf after visiting the site.
