About Eagle Beach

an aerial view of eagle beach aruba
The beach is well-maintained, with clean restrooms, showers, and plenty of shaded areas for visitors to escape the sun.
Eagle Beach, famous for its fofoti trees, is located northeast of Manchebo Beach and is simply one of Aruba’s best beaches. It goes without saying that this great beach has been reviewed many times in various magazines and brochures, all leading to the same conclusion. It’s a beach that is often searched for when people book their accommodation when planning to visit Aruba. It is a quiet sanctuary, away from the hustle and bustle of some of the island’s other beaches. In some places, the picture-perfect paradise is over 1000 meters long and very wide. Here is where you will find the perfect white sand that looks like powder on the beach that Aruba is famous for. The beach faces northwest, offering an amazing view of the Caribbean that has often been used as a backdrop to many (wedding) pictures. No wonder it is seen as probably the most beautiful beach in the world. All hotels and beach resorts in the area provide cabanas and beach chairs for guests. Mostly during the weekends, Eagle Beach is a popular spot for beach tennis enthusiasts. Compared to other beaches, Eagle Beach is a fantastic place to go and see on this happy island. You will never forget it. You’ll likely come back to it many, many times.

Don’t miss happy hour and the amazing sunsets!

Swimming at Eagle Beach in Aruba is a delightful experience. The water is clear, calm, and warm, with a refreshing temperature of around 80°F (27°C) all year round. The beach’s powdery white sand is soft and easy to walk on, and the gentle slope of the shoreline makes it easy to enter and exit the water. The sea at Eagle Beach is relatively calm due to the shelter provided by the island’s position, making it a great spot for swimming and other water activities. You might even spot a pelican or two. The shallow water near the shore is perfect for wading or swimming with children. Lifeguards also monitor designated swimming areas during the day, ensuring a safe swimming experience. Visitors can also enjoy other water activities at Eagle Beach, such as paddleboarding, kayaking, and parasailing. The calm waters and gentle breeze make it an ideal location for these activities, and equipment rental is readily available along the beach.


You’ll love this slice of paradise – swimming here is terrific, but Eagle Beach may not be the best snorkeling spot on the island. While the water is crystal clear and there is plenty of fish to see, the shallow waters near the shore do not have as many coral formations as other areas of the island, which can limit the variety of marine life that you can see while snorkeling. There are several other locations on Aruba that are better suited for snorkeling. Malmok Beach and Boca Catalina, located on the island’s northwestern coast, are known for their coral formations and abundant marine life. Arashi Beach and Tres Trapi are great snorkeling spots with clear waters and plenty of action! You’ll love Tres Trapi in particular, where the sea turtles often come out and swim. See: The Best Snorkeling Spots in Aruba for more information.
