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 beach
    First time in a Aruba as a solo traveler. Eagle beach was my first stop really beautiful beach. Came every day to get a good spot under the umbrella trees. Recommend coming early to get you a spot under the Parasols that are posted through out the beach

    Eagle Beach
    Lovely beach with white sands and marked off swimming areas. Need to arrive early to get a Palapa for shade. The sun is strong so use lots of reef safe suntan lotion. Chairs are available to rent.

    Eagle beach review
    Stayed at an AirBnB very close to eagle beach. Very nice beach- beautiful water, fine sand and not too busy. Wife and I walked on the paved walkway near road in AM and hit the beach later in day. Head south away from eagle and palm beach for even more seclusion.

    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.

An excellent beach and easy to get to from cruise ship. Just walk around the back of the shops to the bus station. It is only $2.50 fare each and drops you at the beach in 15 mins.
Beach chairs and umbrellas $20 for day
Superb swimming and water sports.

Also has a very nice structure and the famous trees

Definitely one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen! This was our first port and it didn’t disappoint! The sand is soft and the water is clear! If your short on time like we were ask your taxi driver to take you to see the famous Divi tree! It was located on the other end of eagle beach.

Cute place... The food is delicious, the animators and vendors are nice, the programs are good... The beach and the pool are nice and clean, but unfortunately the rooms are the opposite... They could be cleaner...

We are here 10 days termin. The hotel is good, but the service team are the best. The animators, the managing director, the seesecrets guys, shisa, coctail boy. They supported our hollydays to perfect level. We see lot of see animals, dolphins, and many more. The eats are also realy good, and the evening programs are very interresting. So fully we has a very nice 10 days here, and i hope we’ll meet again. Weak point maybe the room vleankng and wifi, but that was forgetable. :)

Eagle beach was great! Clear and calm water and not crowded. If I were to rank the beaches it is Baby beach then Eagle. We went to Eagle beach most days because not only is it beautiful but close to our condo. The have water sports available and chair and umbrella rentals.

Still beautiful but cruise ship daytrippers are having an impact. On certain days buses dump enough cruise passengers to make it look like Coney Island.
On a positive side we took 2 hour walks most days and enjoyed the beautiful waters.

During a recent cruise stop, we did a tour that ended up at Arashi Beach. It was too rocky so we asked the tour operator to take us t another beach and drop us off. That is how we ended up at Eagle Beach. It is minutes away from the port and such a beautiful beach! It is what I expected a beach in Aruba to look like. As soon as we got there we were greeted at the entrance by Juan Hernandez. He made sure we had seating and we also did some water sports through him. He was so helpful and sociable, everyone was shouting him out. The best art about this beach is that there was ample shaded areas to sit and relax. If you go to Eagle Beach, make sure you look for Juan!

Eagle Beach is gorgeous. The sand is so soft and powdery. The water is calm and clear. But…the sewage facility is near by. It definitely stinks. Paradise shouldn’t smell like poop.

The beach itself is beautiful (blue calm water) with a lot of amenities. However, the beach smells like a sewer. It is a strong smell. It is not a top beach—no way.
