Description

The Aruba Sea to Summit route climbs from sea level to the highest point on the island through Arikok National Park. You may start at any point where you can touch the sea.  One option is to start at the gem of the park's coastline, Conchi, is a natural pool protected by raised rock formations. From Conchi there are several trails that lead through the national park toward the highest point on the island, Sero Jamanota (617ft). The true summit is not accessible as it is gated off, therefor the route finishes at the gate at 505 ft. above sea level. This route offers the best of Aruba's natural beauty from rocky and rough coastline, to arid desert landscapes, and candelabra cactus laden hillsides and valleys, as well as amazing views of most of the island from atop Sero Jamanota.
