Just booked - 1st time to this island - any must see or must do things? I assume that Palm Beach is the place for nightlift (we are staying on Eagle/Druiff). Thanks everyone!

You will find nightlife in Palm Beach, in town and even in Eagle/Druif Beach area in and around the Alhambra Casino, many restaurants and beach bars within a short walk of the casino.

If you like outdoor activities, I can recommend taking a hike up Mount Hooiberg (early to beat the heat). Not too strenuous. I think a average person can make it up the paved walk and 562 steps. Once on top (ignoring the cell towers and exposed wiring) the views are worth it!

If you will have a car, a ride along the coast where the arches are is worth a few hours. The rugged coast and dry landscape is worth a look. I believe that there is a donkey sanctuary in that vicinity.

You are on the best beach. Eagle is beautiful and spacious and you will not be chair to chair like Palm Beach. Make sure you look at the cruise chip schedule if you want to go to town or baby beach you will want to avoid doing it on days when ships are in port. We love laying on the beach until after sunset then having dinner and walking around the open air mall for ice cream and shows. The restaurants are excellent- there are many forums with up to date restaurant reviews- do your research there are many many choices. You will have a great time, we have been going every year for 40 years!

My husband and I will be there then. The boats are only by charter for the whole boat, a little pricey with only 2 people. Let me know if you'd like to share a fishing trip. We prefer the Driftwood boats. The more the merrrier.
