Are you longing for the chance to leave footprints in the sand and dip your toes in the warm Caribbean water? Aruba is your perfect escape. Book one of the hotels near Eagle Beach for a vacation of starry nights and adventure-filled days. Get ready to embrace island life!
The clean, white sands of Eagle Beach reach out to greet you upon arrival. This wide public beach is home to turtles nesting, people picnicking, and snorkelers and scuba divers searching for exotic fish beneath the crystal, blue waters. During Easter week, the beach is filled with tents of the locals camping there. On weekends, pick up a racket and work on your tennis game, or let your daring side tempt you into parasailing or other water sports. Oranjestad flights are only a 10-mile coastal drive away from this relaxing retreat.
Eagle Beach hotels are also minutes from the Aruba Butterfly Farm in Oranjestad. Walk through the gardens and find yourself surrounded by butterflies from all the around the world. From there, visit Donkey Sanctuary Aruba. Once the primary mode of transport on the island, donkeys are now protected in this sanctuary that also rehabilitates the animals. If you're traveling with kids, you know they will particularly love the chance to feed them. You can also climb up the 1910 California Lighthouse as the sun is setting for spectacular (and romantic) water and city views; learn more about the history of the island and maritime trade in the process. If you feel like a game of chance might be in order, step into one of the island's casinos for a couple rounds of "21" before enjoying international and Caribbean cuisine along the water; delicious street food is also found just outside many of the hotels in Eagle Beach.
