Aruba's most photographed beach and widest by far, especially in front of the Manchebo resort, Eagle Beach is not only a favorite with visitors and locals, but also of sea turtles. More sea turtles nest here than anywhere else on the island. This pristine stretch of blinding white sand and aqua surf frequently ranks ranks among the best beaches in the world. Many of the hotels have facilities on or near the beach, and refreshments are never far away, but chairs and shade palapas are resrved for guests only. Amenities: food and drink; toilets. Best for: swimming; walking; sunset.

Aruba is a great place to Visit. We liked Manchibo Beach the best but Eagle is very nice

Although the weather in Aruba is great, you are better off renting a car and driving to a less crowded beach. At Eagle Beach, if you don't get there by 7 AM you don't get a lounge chair or palapa. That is not my idea of a vacation. And one day at 1:30 PM we found a palapa that was unoccupied and had been unoccupied for 2 hours so we moved our lounge chairs under it. About a half hour later, a couple came back and claimed that that was their palapa.
They were very rude about it. No thanks.
