Eagle BeachIt’s no wonder this pristine stretch of northwest coast is widely considered the best in the Caribbean—its powdery white sands and clear waters are the stuff of picture-perfect screen savers. Lined with a series of low-slung hotels, the beach is full of shaded palapas and water sports outfitters. In spring and early summer, it’s also a popular spot for nesting turtles. Keep your eyes peeled for the red or white markers indicating where they’ve laid their eggs. Note: Like the island itself, Eagle Beach tends to be a bit windy.
Picture-Perfect Eagle Beach
There's no wonder this pristine strand on the northwest coast is a Caribbean favorite: Its powdery white sand and crystal-clear waters are the stuff of screen savers, and the gnarled fofoti tree is practically an icon. Positioned in front of a series of low-slung hotels, the beach is lined with shaded palapas, and there are plenty of water sports outfitters. Note: Like the island itself, the beach can be a bit windy.
