Beautiful to visit and accessible with any car and only a 10min drive. Back in the day this place was used as a Gold Mill.

The Aruba Island Gold Mining Company built the Bushiribana smelter in 1825 to extract gold from the ore that was being mined in the nearby hills of Ceru Plat; it operated for ten years. Today, its remains are a stopping-off point for tourists on their way to view the Aruba Natural Bridge, which collapsed on September 2, 2005

Ruins of what was once a gold mill. You can access this historic site by car. Stay hydrated and make sure to use sunblock.

Built in 1825 as a place to melt gold .These ruins are on an open beach and have spectacular views and if you want to get sea salt there is a lot around the rocks.

Aruba experienced a gold rush during the 19th century, with the discovery of gold on the island first documented in 1824. In 1874, an English mining company built the Bushiribana Gold Mill on Aruba’s north coast in order to process the gold ore extracted from the hills nearby. A team of local masons was hired to assemble the old-fashioned mill using primitive cranes of wooden beams to lift the massive rocks into place. Today, locals and island guests can enjoy exploring inside the Bushiribana Ruins, which provide an excellent vantage point to quietly observe the surrounding rugged terrain and the stunning Caribbean Sea.
