Create an itinerary including Natural Pool
Unreachable by car, Natural Pool represents a secluded swimming hole protected from the ocean swells surrounded by rugged volcanic rock. You'll have to walk, ride on horseback or use an all-terrain vehicle to reach the pool. Be sure to bring your own snacks and plenty of water, water shoes are a "must" to navigate the rocks. The reasonably strenuous hike shouldn't take longer than an hour. Be aware that it can be very dangerous to swim here in inclement weather. Make Natural Pool a centerpiece of your Noord vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Noord day trip tool.

  • The pictures are deceiving. Very different compared to what I envisioned. The pictures show it as clam and relaxing whereas in reality, it was rough. The natural pool, or what the locals call it...

  • Our favorite adventure in Aruba! The natural pool is simply amazing- photos don’t do it justice. You need a jeep 4x4 to get to the pool Bring snorkels and water shoes. use caution if you are not with a tour group! We went 2 separate days and on the 2nd day the ocean was angry and the waves coming over the rocks were so strong they pushed us into the wall. We decided to leave and not take any chances of getting hurt. It’s very fun and the fish in the pool is cool but you have to be careful!
  • Relaxing ocean side alcove to get some suds. The pool isn't all that huge and tends to get somewhat busy, I'm sure there are off hours you can plan for. Tons of crabs and a few small fish, climb up the ocean side of the pool to sit in the warmer higher pool (much smaller). Most will come by 4x4 or UTV but this is easily hikeable from Rancho Daimari and will set you back $11USD (for the park pass) compared to the much higher price of a guided/equipped tour.
