We study the Page curve for eternal Garfinkle–Horowitz–Strominger dilaton black holes in four dimensional asymptotically flat spacetime by using the island paradigm. The results demonstrate that without the island, the entanglement entropy of Hawking radiation is proportional to time and becomes divergent at late times. While taking account of the existence of the island outside the event horizon, the entanglement entropy stops growing at late times and eventually reaches a saturation value. This value is twice of the Bekenstein–Hawking entropy and consistent with the finiteness of the von Neumann entropy of eternal black holes. Moreover, we discuss the impact of the stringy coefficient n and charge Q on the Page time and the scrambling time respectively. For the non-extremal case, the influence of the coefficient n on them is small compared to the influence of the charge Q. However, for the extremal case, the Page time and the scrambling time become divergent or near vanishing. This implies the island paradigm needs further investigation.
