One of my favorite places to go in Aruba is Eagle Beach. This particular stretch of beach is entirely picturesque, even though pictures literally don’t do it justice. Each year we spend a few hours at Eagle Beach – only a few because there’s no shade at all, and you start to sort of feel like you may die in the blazing sun.
Fun facts about Eagle Beach:
Trip Advisor has ranked Eagle Beach as the No. 2 beach in the Caribbean and the No. 3 beach in the world. The sand is white (and hot!) with no rocks or shells hardening it. The ocean is teal…and is saltier than I’ve ever experienced anywhere else. Never have I ever been anywhere more relaxing and beautiful.
Eagle is one of the few beaches left in the world where the endangered sea turtles still come to nest. These barricades line the beach during certain months and indicate that there’s a sea turtle nest under the sand.
Sea Dipped shell bracelet: proceeds save 10 baby sea turtles
Seeing the nests and the way they’re preserved/cared for always tugs at my heart. The more we pollute sea turtle beaches the less space they have to nest, and then they will eventually become extinct. We’ve discussed this once before, but Sea Dipped jewelry is in the business of saving baby sea turtles. I absolutely adore both Hattie (the owner) and my shell bracelet (pictured). Every time I wear it, I picture the sea turtle babies from Finding Nemo, and I just want to save them!
