It's still neat to see though. It's blocked off the water and now you can see what use to be sea floor. There's another bridge right next to it and there are a lot of stacked rocks that are cool to see. There is also a nice gift shop and snack bar.

The best way to experience the natural pool is with a guide. Not easy to get to otherwise. My wife and I used ABC Jeep Tours. This was one of 10 stops along the tour. Pretty much only attainable by jeep or atv. We swam and very much relaxed within the pool. Having the local guide swimming with us was... More

The Natural Pool is a common stop on off-road tours. You can access to pool by (carefully) walking down to the shore. You will need to get into the water and climb over rocks to enter the pool.

Ride in is Very Rough. Lots of steps down to pool itself. Would wear wet socks if you have them. Flip flops not practical. The pool was Very rough the day we visited & can get crowded. There is no where to store property while in the pool. Elderly folks in our group did not fare well.

De Plam tours brought us there by jeep. The ride is like a roller coaster as you go 4x4 though the trails to get there. My wife was terrified of the ride. Me and the teenagers loved it. It was an amazing experience to be in the pool. A must see

With the collapse of the natural bridge, the natural pool has become the most popular attraction in Aruba. Be warned, it is not an easy journey to get there. I would highly recommend not using a rental car to make the journey. I have come by ATV, UTV and Hummer on my trips there. And each time the trail to... More

You need a 4-wheel vehicle to get here. No tour buses can go there. A very bumpy ride with scary twists and turns. Thought the bottom of the Land Rover was going to fall out. Needed to climb up and down 92 rocky steps to get to the bottom, then climb up and over large rock formations to slide into... More
