Bon Bini. . . In April 2008, we had a chance to visit the island of Aruba... Many people visit Aruba to enjoy the outstanding weather, the beautiful ocean, and the many amenities of the resorts. And yes, we did that as
well ;-) But we also took the opportunity to travel around the whole island and attempted to capture its enormous beauty in the image galleries listed on this page. Please take some time and visit our Aruba image galleries. Click on the thumbnail images below to visit the galleries.... Click your browser back button to return to this page.

Aruba Gallery 2 - The North Shore

The North shore of Aruba provides a different view of the ocean in sharp contrast to the white sand and calm waters of Aruba's beaches. A rugged shoreline and crashing waves provide an endless variety sights and sounds. A 4-wheel drive vehicle isn't absolutely necessary to drive the North shore, but it is very difficult without one.

If you like the wind and salt spray in your face - and if you're mesmerized by the sound of the waves crashing into the rocks, then the North shore is a place you just have to visit. This gallery contains 18 images from the North shore. Can you hear the waves?<clidk here to view this image gallery>



Aruba Gallery 3 - Views from Near the Colorado Point Lighthouse

The Colorado Point Lighthouse on the Eastern tip of the island provides some absolutely spectacular views of the Aruba coast and the ocean. As you approach this area from the Southern shore, the coast transitions from white sand and beach to rugged rocks and crashing waves. Among the many sights is a natural bridge formation, carved by the wind and water into the shoreline of the island.

This gallery contains 9 images from the Colorado Point Lighthouse area, which provide yet another unique perspective on the Aruba landscape.
