Perfect for children, inexperienced swimmers and snorkelers, this pretty beach is appropriately named since the water is as calm as a wading pool and only five feet deep.

Good beach for families with kids

A much quieter beach than Palm Beach. Much prettier and a lot less crowded than some of the other beaches in Aruba. Man-made cove that blocks the big waves from the ocean. Great... read more

A much quieter beach than Palm Beach. Much prettier and a lot less crowded than some of the other beaches in Aruba. Man-made cove that blocks the big waves from the ocean. Great place for kids as not as much undertow. You can rent lounge chairs for $10 apiece and the cabanas are free. You'll need a rental car or... More

Found this beach fairly easy and a covered hut to put our stuff under. Then began to look for a restroom. The restaurant on site requires that you have a table to use their restroom which is located outside behind trees with an attendant. They told me I could pay $1 to use another bathroom which was padlocked with no... More

I think it is called baby beach for its shallow water as you can walk for a couple of miles in the water. It enclosed by big rocks to break the waves. Lots of big fish and snorkeling. A bar for drink and sandwiches. You can rent chairs for $9.00 , umbrellas as wee. To use the toilet you have... More

Weather not great when we went but had great time snorkelling and swimming. Be warned if you need sun shade and beach chairs they charge $47 for 2 loungers and canopy! Yeh, $47!! The people next to us thought the guy was joking!

We drove our rental car nearly the length of the island, from Palm Beach to Baby Beach. I wouldn't want to do this several times on vacation, just to get to this beach, but it gave us an opportunity to see the varied communities of the Aruba. We arrived at the free paved parking lot in 25 minutes. We opted... More

Whenever you read about things to do and places to go in Aruba, Baby Beach is always on the list. But, for most visitors, I would take it off that list and concentrate on your resort surroundings. Many people stay on the west side of the island, Manchebo-Eagle-Palm Beach areas, but, when looking for an alternative, they are advised to... More

Baby beach is a lovely little beach right at the south eastern edge of Aruba. Its a bit of a trek to get there and you really need a car or go on one of the excursions that stop at this beach. Aruba has many wonderful beaches so in comparison this one is fairly small. However petite it may be,... More

Bring your chairs and water loungers. We had good fun in the sun, warm clear quiet waters and a great lunch. Beach clam shells and loungers are expensive, suggest you arrive before 10 AM to stake out a palapa.

Excellent encounter with tropical fish. Need to be a strong swimmer. Take Rice Krispies. The fish love it
