Our Island

Slide NOS ISLA Our Island Aruba is one of the three Dutch Caribbean islands, also known as ABC Islands or the Lesser Antilles, and located approximately 15 miles off the coast of Venezuela.

For most visitors, our beaches are the major draw when vacationing in Aruba, but for us who live here, the Mondi, our wilderness, the Sero, our hills, the Cueba and Baranca, our caves and rock formations, offer us that much needed refuge from our busy day to day life.

Our Beaches

One of the most beautiful beaches in the world

La Quinta Beach Resort is situated only a few footsteps away from one of the top 10 beaches on Earth. Characterized by its soft white sands, its bright blue waters, its sea grape shrubs, and famous fototi trees.

Eagle Beach is also the nesting site of four sea turtle species and, therefore, an important protected area.

Our Flora and Fauna

Aruba is a paradise for birders and nature photographers

Located at walking distance from the Bubali Plas or Bubali Bird Sanctuary, La Quinta Beach Resort supports the preservation of these vital wetlands – habitat for a great variety of resident and migratory birds. Herons, egrets, ducks, the Caribbean coot and local parakeets, mockingbirds and mangrove warblers are just a few species found in this unique nature preserve. The entrance to the observation tower is free of charge and right across the street from The Marriott Courtyard.

Our Neighborhood

Perched between Aruba’s capital Oranjestad and Palm Beach

Eagle Beach is not only a world-famous beach, it’s also part of a lively suburb of Oranjestad. The neighborhood is known for its low-rise resorts, wide public beaches, exquisite restaurants, cool beach bars and a great variety of water sport facilities.

When not exploring the neighborhood nor the island, La Quinta Beach Resort offers its guests complimentary beach cabanas, chaises and towels. Relax under your private Tiki Tent and soak in one of Aruba’s most breathtaking views.

We all loved Aruba, and it has risen to the top for our favorite island. Love the weather and the cooling winds, we never felt unsafe, and there are plenty of things to do and places to eat.
