The Dutch word hooiberg, literally translates into haystack in English, as the landform is said to resemble a stack of hay.
Many have remarked about the panoramic views obtained atop Hooiberg. 662 concrete steps lead to the top of the mountain. On a clear day Venezuela can be seen from the top. The windswept mountaintop is also the site of several radio antennas and cell sites used by Setar, an Aruban telecommunication company.
