About
Renowned for its iconic Fofoti trees, this pristine beach beckons a trip. There are low-rise hotels and beach resorts lining the shores, but the beach is mostly quiet. The waters are also relatively calm in the designated swimming zones. Boat tours and water activities like snorkeling and jet skiing are popular here as well. If you're lucky, you may even spot turtles nesting or hatching on the shore between March and September. Eagle Beach is also a popular wedding photoshoot location—many newlyweds come to snap their wedding photos against the blissful Caribbean waters. – Tripadvisor

    Beautiful pristine beach
    What can I say this beach is awesome. Clear aqua water, talcum powder soft sand. (By the way you can’t take any home with you or shells or you will get a fine) enjoy the spotless clean area and walking looking at the fish. There are jet ski rentals available, and parasailing for the adventurous type.

    Beautiful beach
    We went to Aruba on a Royal Caribbean cruise and visited this beach, it is one of the most beautiful beaches we have visited. While there we had lunch at a fast food restaurant Aruba Blue Beach bar and terrace, all very tasty. Back to the ship we take public transport, a mini van of those that pass by constantly.

    Awesome beach
    This broad, long beach never seems crowded, with plenty of room for everyone. A diversity of people are engaged in many activities. It is a perfect beach for strolling along the water's edge, especially in the morning when the winds are not as strong. Aruba does not allow individual vendors to walk along the beach and try and sell items, so the beach is hassle free. There are a few kiosks with vendors for watersports. There seem to be fewer vendors for umbrellas now, so finding shade if you're a visitor is a challenge. Some of the palapas are staked out before 7 am. Come early if you want parking for a car. Areas for swimming are marked to exclude watercraft. The beach slopes gradually into the water for easy entry, especially for kids. Calm, clean water. No big waves. No seaweed. Not much to see when snorkeling, though. People of all ages from many different places enjoy this beach. Everyone was respectful of the space of others. Swimwear ranged from my g-string to some trendy thongs and cheeky bikinis, and all manner of styles for fun in the sun. Good place to be yourself and enjoy your vacation. The summer brings much stronger winds. A breeze of 20 to 30 kmh provides cooling, but when wind gusts reach 40 to 60 kmh it becomes unpleasant getting sandblasted. At least the wind gusts are not constant. The fine, powdery white sand doesn't get too hot. Good to see loggerhead turtle nesting sites marked off and protected.

    One of our favourite beaches
    We love this beach for all that it is, calm blue waters excellent for swimming and soft white sand. My wife and I go every year and we are never disappointed, the beach is certainly beautiful. It can get busy but we always find a spot regardless of the time day. Wether hotel/beach staff, other tourists or island residents we find people are respectful and mind their own business. But we mostly love this beach because we can enjoy our vacation hassle-free of beach vendors and no one bothers us, we can socialize as much as we want or we can have our privacy, this is why we keep coming back to Eagle Beach.

    Relaxation at its Best
    Best beach in the World. Even at home ( New York), I rather wait all year around to get here. The water is warm and clear most of the time and relaxing. The best Sundown picture Perfect you can have on a Portafolio or a phone screen. It's unbelievable.

    Beautiful beach with great views
    This beautiful white sand beach offers amazing views, lots of space so you don't feel crowded and various bars etc to enjoy your day. Trees provide shade for free, the sun loungers and umbrellas cost a lot more. However, we spent a while just relaxing and people watching.

    Aruba feels like home
    Certainly! Here's an improved version of your text: "My favorite beach in Aruba, coming from Venezuela, it feels just like home to me. Aruba offers a variety of affordable accommodation options on Airbnb, making it a budget-friendly destination."

    Great beach crappy chair and umbrella rentals
    Beautiful beach! Not crowded. Easy taxi ride from the cruise port. The only issue we had was chair and umbrella rentals are OUTRAGEOUS… 50 bucks for 2 chairs and an umbrella and you can’t get 3 chairs it has to be 2 chairs per umbrella. The man selling was absolutely rude as well. Do yourself a favor and bring a blanket, there were shade trees that others were sitting under and didn’t have to pay for the umbrellas and chairs. There was a restroom at the little restaurant/bar at the beach but the line was really long.

Just LOVE Eagle Beach!!! The beach is so beautiful and the area is so clean. The Tiki Huts are just awesome to have some shade, but can get plenty sun if you like.

The water is absolutely stunning! You've stepped right into a dream. The sand is white, so it stays cool under your feet. There is always a breeze in Aruba, which is nice because it cools you off without the sand blowing. I do recommend towel clips! Water clear and great for swimming, but not much snorkeling. Definitely a relax, read and swim type of beach. Plan to arrive before 10am if you want a good parking spot and under one of the free public thatched umbrellas (palapas) as they are first come, first serve. Otherwise, there are ample umbrellas/beach lounges for rent. Parking is free. Probably best to avoid cruise ship arrival days if you want fewer crowds.

Busy beach, but we came later in the day and many were leaving. Bar with food, drinks and bathrooms nearby. Sand is amazingly soft with clear water. No water shoes needed. Enjoyed the beautiful sunset and saw baby turtles hatch (random event).
There is a group of volunteers who watch the roped off areas. We happened to be in the right place at the right time.

Not sure how it got the 2nd best beach in the world title but if that’s why you’re coming, you’ll be disappointed. I mean, it’s pretty, but that’s about it.

What a beautiful beach! We also checked out tres trapi, Boca Catalina, baby beach and Mangel Halto. The beaches in Aruba are stellar! We didn’t like the rocky bottom at MH but all others were awesome! At Eagle Beach especially the ocean and beach were so beautiful hardly anyone was at the pool, which we’d never seen before in other places the pool is always packed. Aruba’s Beaches are more beautiful than Oahu or Kauai imo and Mexico’s (playa mujeres or Cancun) beaches are no comparison to Hawaii or Aruba. Aruba water is shallow, warm and waves much less aggressive than we’ve ever seen.

It is a beautiful beach with its white sand and turquoise water. We did a little snorkeling and saw some nice fish. The water was just right.

Nice public/free beach not far from the Cruise terminal. The water was perfect, the beach was rather clean and seemed safe, the sand never got too hot. Was a great beach to just hang out and drink and catch some sun.

This is the most amazing beach in the world.

Long expanse of white sand which allows it to never feel crowded.

The idyllic water which displays three dominant colors of blue will simply take your breath away

Jersey and Carlos were THE BEST! Funny, happy, entertaining, thorough, and grateful. Lots of history in his talks. And they changed a flat in only moments. Experienced and polite. We enjoyed our tour very much.
