TripAdvisor just announced the TripAdvisor Travelers Awards for best beaches, and Aruba’s Eagle Beach ranked 3rd Best Beach in the World, yes indeed…in the world(!) and the 2nd Best Beach in the Caribbean. 

Eagle beach might be our flagship beach, with its endless stretches of powdery white sands, calming waters and relaxing atmosphere, but Aruba is home to more award-winning beaches!  Variety is the key factor here, as we have beaches for every beach lover to explore: from secluded beaches to family friendly beaches, to beaches perfect for extreme sports to beaches excellent for snorkeling.
