    Top beach… for these reasons
    We had the privilege to rent a car and drive around to all the beaches of the island. In my humble opinion, Eagle beach was an awesome place to relax under a tree or umbrella, rent a jet ski, other water sports, swim, and watch the sunset. It’s the perfect place to spend a whole day. Multiple booths rent umbrellas and chairs for $30-40 per person. There is also plenty of shade under trees. You can also just as well sit on the sand, which is never hot because it is made of crushed coral. The jet skis rent for $80 per 30 minutes. They accept credit cards with a 6% fee. The rentals all stop at 5 pm on Sunday. I think I heard the booth operators say that during the week they close at 4pm. Sunset was gorgeous as this beach is facing west so the views are wonderful.

    Ricardos a gem of a find restaurant
    ricardos is a small restaurant located on Eagle Beach right on the sand. All the food is prepped to order the staff fantastic the food outstanding and the price is moderate, my wife and I enjoy having dinner in the evening and watching the sun sink into the ocean. And in the mornings we enjoy having breakfast. Watching the sunrise the restaurant is small, but very romantic.

    Easy access by bus
    The local bus goes there and it cost $2.60 U.S. per person per trip. it a nice beach you can bring your beach chair and sit under the palm tree. Need a romantic dinner while watching the sunset there a restaurant on the beach that have nightly dinner. However, you need to make a reservation. You can also bring out the inner child in you by swinging on the swing on the beach or take part in one of the water sport offer by the locals.

Beautiful water. We went to this beach as an excursion from the cruise we were on. We were told that this was a beautiful beach with all sorts of amenities. What a joke. We paid $19.99 per person with the cruise excision on our cruise. Then when we get to Eagle Beach we have to pay $10 per person to get a sun damage lounger to sit on. We were told that none of the umbrellas worked, so we would have to find shade to protect ourselves from the sun. We asked were the restrooms were and the guy told us that we could use the restroom at the hotel across the street. We went to the hotel across the street to get food from the restaurant and were told that the hotel was only available to customers staying at the hotel. The lady told us to go to the food truck. You could actually smell the grease in the food. We went to the bar to use the restroom and we were told that it cost $1.00.

The beach is huge which is a major plus! We were able to get a palapa (straw umbrella) on the beach every day we needed one. We were at the tropicana and la cabana and those 2 hotels share an area of the beach. BUT people go to the beach AT SUNRISE to reserve a palapa. A member from our group went down every morning at like 7am to grab one. Hotel staff are there to assign you one and bring your chairs over. If you leave a bag or towel marking your territory you have it basically all day. If you don't plan to be there all day though give it away because lots of people end up without one. The beach starts to clear out around 4 so when we went to the beach later on certain days we still got a palapa. They clean the beach every night (at least in our hotels area) so it's always great. There are snack and drink huts along the beach and places to book excursion and parasail etc. This beach was also our favorite to play in the waves. The waves can be HUGE but it depends on the wind, other times it was relativity calm. There were people of all ages, baby to adult. We spent a lot of time here.

I will say, on our first day we wandered around looking for a palapa ourselves and people told us to go talk to a staff member in order to get one. Plus, the chairs are all locked up to prevent random people from taking the chairs... if you aren't staying at a hotel on eagle beach you will have to rent chairs and an umbrella (not palapa). This is a plus to staying ON eagle beach!

We wanted to escape the crowds at the high rises on Palm Beach, so we took a quick drive down to Eagle Beach arriving around 10:30 AM. There were very few people there, and we had our choice of chairs and umbrellas which we rented for $40 (for 2) for the day. A little pricey, but worth it if you don’t have your own gear. As the beach filled up, we had people on either side of us but everyone was quiet and pleasant. The sand and the water are remarkable. Very calm, absolutely beautiful. I don’t know that I would rank it #9 in the world, but it certainly was nice.

One note . . . The chair guy told us that it gets very crowded when cruise ships are in port. There was only 1 today, so not bad.

We visited Eagle Beach since our resort did not have much of a beach area. We were so happy with the decision! The sand is powder soft and the water is absolutely gorgeous. It was calm and shallow for while from the shore. We rented chairs and an umbrella from one of the local stands for $40. Worth noting that this is a public beach so there are no restrooms, but we were able to use the one across the street at a hotel. Highly recommend visiting during your stay.

It is a beautiful beach where some resorts are located. After the waterfront area, there are some lakes that are areas of environmental preservation. There are some unfinished buildings that have probably suffered the economic impact of the pandemic. The resorts maintain beach huts for their guests and bar services, but like all beaches in Aruba, there is no entry fee. The sand is white and the sea is transparent and calm.

We have stayed in Aruba a few times as both a couple and with family, at both Palm Beach and Eagle Beach. The beaches here are impeccable. The sand is white, powdery, soft, and exceptionally clean. The water is crystal clear, and you can see your feet even when you are waist-deep (or deeper) as if you are looking through a pane of glass. The weather is absolutely perfect, never varying by more than a few degrees. Rain is minimal to non-existent. This beach, along with the island in general, is an enduring exercise in vacation perfection, obviously thanks in large part to the island’s government and oversight. My wife and I often don't like to vacation in the same place more than once, but rest assured we will continue to revisit this place.

We picked this beach 3 times during our stay (our hotel was 10 minutes drive from Eagle) because The Bar (next to Linda playa hotel) had happy hours between 12-7pm :D :D :D so guess what, we had a pretty happy time. For 8 or 9 dollars you got 2 pretty good coctails :) the beach is calmer than fe durf beach or next to the lighthouse north. You can see beautiful sunset in front of you, the sun goes down the the sea.

This beach is beautiful, clean and the staff is very friendly. But if you want a good spot, make sure you go early to grab one - 5:30AM and remember there is a time limit on how long your things can be left unattended. This is so that people don't take advantage of saving their spot when others could have used it.

I was down on the beach nearly every single day of my visit, be it to spend several hours laying and relaxing or just a bit to watch the perfect sunset. This beach is perfect, the sand is soft and clean, the water is clear warm and beautiful. despite being possibly the finest beach in the world it was not over crowded. If I had one knock it would be the jetski etc rentals creating noise and general nuisance but this was minimal.

Eagle Beach is located in the “low rise” district of Aruba. Less hotels & concentration of people. Great for any ages for relaxing and taking in scenery. Many turtle nests roped off (stay away & do not disturb). The official divi tree is at the west top of beach near the Amsterdam resort. Numerous parking spots both in lots & on the road. Since all the beaches are public, recommend getting to the beach early for a great spot or a Palapa. Take your snorkeling gear to explore some of the small reefs and all the underwater creatures that eagle beach has to offer. Don’t forget your sunblock & Enjoy!
