Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins, Oranjestad

3.9
#4 of 12 in Historic Sites in Aruba
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.

  • We were here 4 years ago but never really looked around. Not really much to see. Did walk to the ocean out front.  more »
  • If you like climbing and scenic pictures, I guess this is something to check out. There's nothing to really do besides climb.  more »

  • Another interesting site on the Island. There is not much left of this building but if you like historical sites you need to see it.
  • Lovely historic place. Simple but beautiful. If you go further down a bit in the coast you will find the "small" natural pool. A must go place
