    Can't Wait!!

    Hello All…My wife and 2 children will be our way at the end of June. We are all very excited for a nice relaxing vacation on the amazing Island of Aruba. This will be our first trip and by reading other posts, it will be fantastic! Especially being there while watching the World Cup

    One quick question…My son (9) is really into soccer, does Eagle beach allow sporting activities or is it a lounging beach? Would we be able to pass the ball around as long as we are a reasonable distance from others? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hi Fitzy! Welcome to the Aruba.com Community Forum!

    I've personally never seen anyone playing soccer on the beach, but there is volleyball and often people throwing water balls in the ocean so I don't think there would be any issue with kicking a soccer ball around.

    Enjoy your first trip and make sure you report back and let us know all about it!

    I've seen people play paddle ball, catch with footballs and other types of balls, pickle with volleyballs and foot work with soccer balls all the way from Palm Beach to Eagle Beach. As long as you are considerate, there shouldn't be a problem.

    Hi fitz
    yes welcome to the aruba.com community forum.

    On eagle beach to the south of paradise beach villas and ending on the north side of costa linda there are tons of local folks playing beach soccer.

    Palm beach is much more congested and no real places to kick a ball.

    And thanks, you've reminded me. Here is a fun idea. I need to find a light up frisbee. The beach area is not crowded at all in the evening and my kids loved having the light up frisbee for fun at night! We used ours so much it died.

    We have been staying at The Divi for years with our kids and they always bring soccer balls. We have never had a problem with them kicking around. Actually, they have made friends every time they kick around. It's a great ice breaker for kids. We bring the glow necklaces and bracelets for them to wear after dark while playing on the beach. Looks cool and by the end of the night, there are at least a dozen other kids glowing in the dark.
