The western shore of Aruba is lined with sandy beaches and mega resorts while the northern coast is the direct opposite. It is barren, uninhabited and lined with reddish dust and volcanic rock. So why would you visit there? One reason is the windward side has huge waves relentlessly crashing into pools and cliffs. The result is a mesmerizing display of splashing, spraying and swirling water in gorgeous shades of blue and white. The perpetual motion is spectacular to watch!
