Oh what a night!
In the evening, the region transforms into a magical wonderland with soft music and sparkling lights. After a day on the idyllic beach, enjoy a fabulous cocktail with the super-friendly locals at one of the many beachside bars to be discovered along the two kilometres of stunning coastline. Enjoy fresh seafood and fine wines in one of the luxurious resort restaurants where staff are always happy to recommend local specialities including keshi yena, a local favourite made from cheese stuffed with spicy meats.
Perfect for those who prefer a more relaxed vacation, Eagle Beach is less of a party resort than its neighbour Palm Beach and is a firm favourite among holidaymakers who wish to recharge their batteries with a delicious drink as they watch the sun set over the ocean. However, having said that, those looking for a little more action can visit one of the many clubs and casinos within the area.
An excursion to Aruba’s capital, Oranjestad, is a must for the visitor to Eagle Beach. Just 15 minutes away by road, the city is a marvel of stunning culture and architecture, modern shopping, traditional markets and a stunning harbour.
Public transport is cheap and reliable and, visitors can hop onto a tram in order to see the city in style. Within just a few minutes by tram, you can take in the 19th-century Fort Zoutman which incorporates the fascinating Historical Museum of Aruba and, the incredible exhibits of The Archaeological Museum – the mansion it calls home is worth a visit alone
Aruba’s Reina Beatrix International Airport is just five miles from Eagle Beach and visitors can take a taxi and be at the resort within just 20 minutes. Reina Beatrix also offers car rental for those who like some independence during their visit.
Small but perfectly formed, Aruba is a source of endless wonder as it encapsulates the best of the Caribbean – from the sparkling azure waters to the fabulous food and hospitality. Visit this beautiful island once and you’ll be back time and time again.
