The Natural Bridge was a popular tourist attraction located on the northern coast of Aruba. It was a unique rock formation that had formed naturally over thousands of years through the process of erosion by the ocean waves.

The Natural Bridge was made of coral limestone and stood about 25 feet (7.6 meters) above sea level. It was one of the largest natural rock bridges in the Caribbean region, measuring approximately 100 feet (30 meters) long and 25 feet (7.6 meters) high. Its arched shape made it a distinctive landmark and a popular spot for visitors to Aruba.

Collapsing of the bridge

Unfortunately, in 2005, the larger section of the Natural Bridge collapsed due to natural erosion. Today, a smaller remnant of the bridge known as “Baby Bridge” remains and can still be visited. Baby Bridge is located nearby the original site and is a smaller version of the natural formation.

There is no entrance fee to visit the Natural Bridge in Aruba.
