Aruba 2021

Eagle Beach

We were beach hoping and we ended up at Eagle Beach. It's a beautiful beach with white powdery sand, but no shade unless you rent an umbrella off one of the vendors.

Several of the beaches have turtle nesting area's closed off. There was a few post on the Aruba fb group saying "turtles are hatching on _____ beach" but we never went to see it.

There were a lot of dogs on the beach playing in the water and not a care in the world. There was a family beside us with a dog and he did not like for his kid to go into the water without him. He would swim all the way out to where he was at each time. It was so cute.

We stayed here for the rest of the day and then headed home. 

We've been here several times and it is a very pretty, but very open with no shade or trees, beach with soft sand and very popular.
