Arikok National Park| Notable places within the Arikok National Park
Here is a brief description of notable places in the Arikok National park. You can go sight-seeing with Aruba eco-tours:
a) Daimari Beach
The bay at the northernmost section of the Arikok National Park was formed due to erosion of the Daimari dry riverbed and north coast wave action. Most of the white sand is sent to the sea during heavy rainfall. The beach returns to its usual self after gradual waves return the sand back to its original position. If you wish to visit this beautiful beach, you can book one of our Arikok Park Hiking Tours here
b) Moro Rock
The resemblance to Aruba’s outline earned Moro the title of “Little Aruba”.These are the remnants that are left after the continuous effects of limestone erosion and two ways flanking at Boca Keto(North) and Boca Fluit(South).
c) Conchi Natural Pool
The Conchi natural pool is one of the most important tourist attractions of Aruba and the best place to visit with Aruba hiking tours. The pool is comprised of lava stones and surrounded by rough seas. In the past, turtles used to roam in this pool- lending it the local name of Conchi(Turtle Pen). Tourists can swim in rough sea-like conditions- though in cases of extremity, swimming is discouraged.
