If you’re planning a beach holiday this year, Aruba’s postcard-perfect Eagle Beach would be a good choice.
We stayed at a cozy little motel right across the beach and took the public bus when we wanted to go somewhere. Sometimes the bus was just an unmarked minivan, which at first seemed a bit shady. The minivan would be crammed up with locals, politely making room for us too.
Sometimes we walked back from Oranjestad which was about an hour’s walk. In the cooler evening hours it was a pleasant way to stretch your legs.
