On the northern coast stands Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins, a remnant from the 19th century gold rush in Aruba. Strong winds from the Caribbean sea power the 1874 structure, and the crumbling mill is now a popular stop on local jeep tours navigating coastal dirt roads. The dramatic backdrop of sea and sand also make it a stunning spot to soak up the scenery on foot. Follow tradition by stacking local stones on the beach and making a wish. Put Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins at the forefront of your travel plans using our Oranjestad travel route builder.
Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins reviews
Surprise place we stumbled upon - these ruins were fun to climb, with some good scenery and a little history for the kids. If you’re going to the natural bridge, might as well check this place out too!
Can be reached via car. The New Small Natural Pool next to the ruins was an even better attraction to visit.
