  • Hooiberg is a 168 m above the sea level which also constituted a volcanic formation on the island of Aruba. It is almost in the center of the island and is the highest point and it can be seen from practically anywhere in its territory. Good place for panoramic shots.

  • Nice place...easy to climb up in 20 min because of the stairs! The view is great! BUT at the top a lot of electric cables lay on the ground. Looks not that save
  • Easy climb, only takes 10-15 minutes to get to the top via the steps. Nice romantic spot to watch the sunset.
  • Quite an exercise to get to the top, but the view is worth it.
  • Climbing up those stairs was scary but worth it for the views :)
  • Very hard to climb but when you reach the top is worth the effort
