California Lighthouse (Noordwest Punt), Aruba

Located at the North West tip of the island of Aruba atop Hudishibana Hill, the Noordwest Punt Light, commonly known as the California Lighthouse was established in 1916. The light gets its name from the British ship, the California, that sank off the point in 1891 and was the reason for constructing a light at that site. Today, the former keeper's house which is adjacent to the light is a restaurant (La Trattoria El Faro Blanco). Photos were taken in November 2010.
