Aruba : Natural Rock Bridge

natural rock bridge Aruba

Aruba's East side is the dark side of the island. In contrast with the white sand and calm caribbean waters of the West, the landscape is rugged and full of amazing limestone rock formations, like Natural Rock Bridges. Today, we can only visit the so-called Baby Bridge (as the larger one collapsed in 2005) and then take a walk around the rocky shore, until the abandoned Gold Mill, which processed gold during the island's gold rush in the 19th century. 

An industry that eventually produced 3 million pounds of gold, roughly 500 years after Pirates traveled the Caribbean in search of gold. The legend has it, that one of these islands was named "Oro Ruba" that stands for "red gold" which is the root for today's name, "Aruba".

Viento y caliza. Igual que en Menorca, las diferentes costas de Aruba no tienen nada que ver. De playas paradisíacas a formaciones de roca caliza, donde llueve a menudo y las olas rompen con una furia desconocida en el lado Este. Tras cruzar el último puente de roca, puedes explorar las ruinas del molino de oro, donde piratas y colonos extraían el preciado metal durante la fiebre del siglo 19. Se cree que el nombre de Aruba deriva de "Oro Ruba" que significa "oro rojo" y es como la llamaban los piratas que navegaban el Caribe, hace más de 500 años.
