Nestled on the most romantic and secluded section of Aruba’s Eagle Beach, Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort’s 14-acre stretch of white sand is consistently named one of the Caribbean’s top beaches. Our guests flock here to relax in luxury amidst the sheer natural beauty of the turquoise waters, pristine beach and warm, gentle breezes.
