Default Aruba - Volcanic Island of the Carribean

Aruba is one of the Dutch "A-B-C" islands of the Caribbean (Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao).
Aruba is known for it's beaches, whereas Bonaire is known for the availability of "shore diving". In Bonaire, the coral reefs are near the shoreline and you can don your scuba gear and swim out to the reefs to dive rather than having to go out on a dive boat. My husband and I have been to Bonaire several times for scuba diving but this was our first trip to Aruba.

We took a little excursion one day to see some of the island sights away from the resort where we stayed.

Volcanic rock lines the shore on the Northeastern side of the island.



Lots of little stone altars had been erected throughout this area of the shoreline.






Ruins of an old fort









Wonderful contrast of fallen rocks against the sky



Beautiful surf



Natural Bridge formation







There is an inactive volcano you can walk to the top of. 538 steps in the heat and humidity seems a lot farther than it sounds!!

Cactus flower at the volcano peak



View from the top



My husband on top of the volcano the Dutch call the "Haystack"



These flowers are at the resort, but I thought they were beautiful!





That's the end of the Aruba photos, folks!

There are four threads of Aruba photos in all in case you haven't located them all yet!
