Lounge under bamboo huts on the shores of Eagle Beach in Aruba. You’ll often feel you have your own corner of paradise to yourself — the only footsteps in the sand are yours for miles, while the only sound is the gentle crashing of the waves and whistling breeze.
Closer to the water, lounge in the silk sands and picnic — or dive in for some world-class snorkeling. Home to the landmark “Divi Divi Tree,” a tangled icon of natural wonder in the midst of the soft sandy shore, it’s a wonderland of surprising views and powdered sugar sands. If you are visiting in the summer, keep your eye out for the magic of turtle hatching.
Eagle Beach is located in the highly traveled island Aruba, making international travel quite easily accessed. Queen Beatrix International is the most popular airport in Aruba. Visitors can fly into this airport for around $400 from Toronto, Las Vegas, Orlando, Cancun and Maui. You can also get direct flights from Canada, Mexico to Aruba by Air Canada and American Airlines. You can find many flights options to this destination from Europe, the U.S. & UK. After landing, Eagle Beach is just under 20 minutes away by rental car or public transportation. Many arrive by cruise ship on a Caribbean galavant — if this includes you, simply hail a bus from the terminal across from the cruise port which will take you to the beach.
