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.

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.

You can get a great view, in my opinion, from Casibari Rock.
