There are several theories as to how the name of Eagle Beach came to be. The most popular explanation is that the word “eagle” was used by allied forces during WWII as a code word to refer to the location, which seems plausible. At a certain point during the war there was a contingency of about 4000 members of the United States Navy in Aruba to offer assistance in protecting the oil refinery. That refinery was in turn the biggest supplier of fuel for the allied forces within the Western Hemisphere according to reports.
In the present, Eagle Beach is considered to be among the most popular beaches in the Caribbean. It features a lot of space and tranquility. Enjoy above picture taken at Eagle Beach recently.
