June is a magical time to visit Eagle Aruba Resort, not only for the pristine beaches and luxurious accommodations but also for a unique natural spectacle—Tern Breeding Season. This month, up to ten species of terns are breeding around the island, creating a vibrant and bustling environment perfect for bird enthusiasts and nature lovers.

Protecting Our Feathered Friends

During this sensitive period, it’s crucial to protect these beautiful birds and their habitats. We kindly ask visitors to:

  • Avoid off-roading with UTVs: This can disturb nesting sites and lead to accidental destruction of eggs.
  • Refrain from mountain biking in nesting areas: Bikes can scare away adult birds, leaving nests vulnerable.
  • Keep dogs on a leash: Even the friendliest dogs can pose a threat to tern chicks and eggs.
