On the northern coast stands Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins, a remnant from the 19th century gold rush in Aruba. Strong winds from the Caribbean sea power the 1874 structure, and the crumbling mill is now a popular stop on local jeep tours navigating coastal dirt roads. The dramatic backdrop of sea and sand also make it a stunning spot to soak up the scenery on foot. Follow tradition by stacking local stones on the beach and making a wish.
