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. 

Recent visitors called the beach magnificent with gorgeous white sand and the bluest water. They do warn of high winds, however, so plan to wear a hat to protect from any flying sand.

If your hotel is near here, you can ask at the reception desk about renting watersports equipment or taking a sunset cruise on a catamaran. And there are nearby restaurants should you get hungry. Plus, like many a Caribbean beach, Eagle Beach is great for just relaxing. And if you come at the right time of year, you can interact with wildlife. Eagle Beach is open to the public 24/7 and access to the beach is free. If you're not staying on the beach, it's also a stop along a handful of Arubus routes.

Some vacationers like their water for swimming, not sporting. If this is you, ditch the "Low-Rise area" at Eagle Beach and try the more tranquil turquoise waters along Palm Beach, located just above Eagle Beach on Aruba's western coast. You'll have fewer Jet Skis and wakeboarders to avoid as you wade in the Caribbean Sea.

Recent travelers were impressed with the water's bright, clear blue color and the soft, white sand of the shoreline that varies by location. Others remarked on the memorable sunsets and prevalence of Tiki bars.
