the natural bridge
The largest of these bridges used to be the famous Natural Bridge, which collapsed on September 2, 2005. Despite this, it is still the most photographed natural bridge and it remains a tourist attraction in Aruba, with the adjacent intact Baby Bridge also meriting a visit. The natural arch (as it used to be), measuring approximately 25 feet (7.6m) high and 100 feet (30m) long, was the remnant of an ancient cave.
Worth a visit
The beautiful building at the Natural Bridge has an Aruba country home look and feel, which is typical of the old style homes on the island. The interior includes state-of-the-art restrooms, a nice bar, gift shop and sitting areas. One of the most unique features are the panoramic views to the ocean and the surrounding hills right from the sitting areas which are created by a series of big windows. The view is second to none. The gift shop offers unique souvenirs and the very popular Biba Dushi line of apparel. The bar includes a wide selection of alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages, snacks, sandwiches and ice cream. The Natural Bridge is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
