At 165 m (541 ft), Hooiberg represents one of the highest points in Aruba, allowing you to experience a 360-degree view of the area. As you climb to the top of this volcanic mountain, you can take a break at plenty of rest stops, ensuring additional vistas from different perspectives. On clear days, many visitors report being able to see as far away as Venezuela. Our Oranjestad trip maker makes visiting Hooiberg and other Oranjestad attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

It is an amazing place and the view is just amazing!! I love it so much Aruba is such a beautiful place 💜 the view is amazing but you gotta climb and that thing huurtss 😂😂 #noodlelegs I couldn't walk one time I went with my cousin.
Ohhhhh the steps. The climb up Hooiberg is over a fairly steep set of steps that will surely make your legs burn unless you're in pretty good shape. If you get vertigo the trip back down the steps can give you that sensation. It can be crowded on the steps in the late afternoon /early evening as people make their way to workout there. You can get a great view, in my opinion, from Casibari Rock.
