Stretching down 200 yards of the island's western coast is Aruba’s largest beach, Eagle Beach. This laidback, low-rise hotel district boasts calm, translucent waters and powdery, white sands ideal for water and land sports. Visitors looking to relax will appreciate thatched-roof picnic areas sprinkled along the coast to offer shaded respite. Casual, unpretentious and the ultimate beach town, Eagle Beach is popular with locals as well as tourists for its uncrowded beaches and low-key style. During the week of Easter, tents dot the coastline as locals enjoy the tradition of camping out. Eagle Beach is conveniently located minutes away from Oranjestad's metropolitan glow and 10 minutes away from Aruba’s international airport.
