It'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.
