|About these ratings|
Known as "Low-Rise area" for its low-to-the-ground hotels and timeshares, northwestern Eagle Beach is one of the island's top shores by default -- you're probably staying nearby. Convenience aside, Eagle Beach truly is one of the best places to spend a day in Aruba.
If your hotel is near here, you can ask at reception about renting watersports equipment (jet-skiing is particularly popular) or taking a sunset cruise on a catamaran. And there are nearby restaurants should you get hungry. Plus, like many a Caribbean beach, Eagle is great for just relaxing. But whatever you choose, come early to do it. Previous vacationers were disappointed with the crowds and limited beach chairs. A reviewer on Fodor's notes, "if you don't get there by 7 AM you don't get a lounge chair or palapa. That is not my idea of a vacation."
Eagle Beach is open to the public 24/7, plus it's free.
