  • We spent a few hours here for part of a day on family spring break. Located near the center of the island in a residential area, it’s easily accessible by car and GPS. There’s a small parking lot...  more »

  • It is an amazing place and the view is just amazing!! I love it so much Aruba is such a beautiful place 💜 the view is amazing but you gotta climb and that thing huurtss 😂😂 #noodlelegs I couldn't walk one time I went with my cousin.
  • Ohhhhh the steps. The climb up Hooiberg is over a fairly steep set of steps that will surely make your legs burn unless you're in pretty good shape. If you get vertigo the trip back down the steps can give you that sensation. It can be crowded on the steps in the late afternoon /early evening as people make their way to workout there. You can get a great view, in my opinion, from Casibari Rock.
