Tourist Attraction in Noord: California Lighthouse
The California Lighthouse is a lighthouse located at Hudishibana, Noord, near Arashi Beach on the northwest tip of Aruba. This lighthouse was named for the steamship California, which was wrecked nearby on September 23, 1891. The lighthouse has completed a recent restoration in May 2016 which coincided with the 100th anniversary of the completion of the lighthouse. Immediately adjacent to the lighthouse is a restaurant called La Trattoria el Faro Blanco, and also nearby is the Tierra del Sol Resort, Spa & Country Club. The terrain is moon-like with sharp rocks sticking out of the ground, making it difficult for people to walk on without sturdy footwear.
