Travels in Aruba – part five

Initially Spence and I weren’t going to rent a car in Aruba but a few days before leaving, we changed our minds.  I hadn’t been to Aruba for thirty years and Spence had never been. I knew there were sights I wanted to see again and introduce to him.  Driving out of the Low Rise Hotel area (where we stayed at Bucuti & Tara Beach Resorts), passing the high rise hotel area, we headed out to the remote California Lighthouse.

The California Lighthouse is located near Arashi Beach on the northwest tip of Aruba, named for the steamship California, which wrecked nearby on September 23, 1891.

Immediately adjacent to the lighthouse is a restaurant called La Trattoria el Faro Blanco (English: The White Lighthouse Restaurant) where we stopped for a cocktail enjoying lovely views from this vantage point.
