A natural pool in paradise, great for families with kids since the water is very shallow. We rented a car and once we got there had to pay $40 dollars to rent an umbrella? I say walk past all the umbrellas and look for the trees, got under one and enjoy paradise for free. Stop at the pet cementary on... More

Huge shallow water cove. Great for snorkeling and just wading around. Snorkeling equipment for rent for $10. And fold-up cabanas and chairs are for rent, too. There are some large areas of seaweed that were a little bit annoying but otherwise a really nice beach to spend a day at.

Baby beach is a great place for a snorkeling beginner. A vast area of warm, waist deep, clear water. Great for the Kids.

I went with my wife but I can say it's the perfect beach to bring children. It's so calm it almost feels like a pool. Food on the beach was really good!

If you do only 1 tour when you're in Aruba, this must be the one! We covered so many sites on the one day.....the Lighthouse, The Chapel, Donkey Sanctuary, Gold mine Ruins, Rock Formations, Lunch at the perfect location and finished the day off with snorkelling at Baby Beach. This truly is a wonderful, value for money tour. Our guide... More

I read reviews about Baby Beach being a good spot for snorkeling...trust me..it isn't! While there are no waves because of a man made breakwater, the water is far from clear. Nice beach for a day with family. A couple of restaurants offer sandwiches and burgers and ice cold beer

On the south side of Aruba near the old Exxon oil refinery is the best beach in Aruba for snorkeling. Bring a blanket and a picnic too and enjoy this great little inlet and it's tropical fish. If you have an underwater camera, don't forget to bring it along!

Baby beach is one of the local's beaches, so over the weekend it can get quite busy. the water is very shallow, so it's great for small kids to play. bring your cooler with your own drinks, and even try to bring your own food... the local food sold at Big Mama's Grill is OK, but definitely not great!

Has to be seen. If you are in Aruba, don't miss out on a visit to Baby Beach. My best tip is, if snorkeling go where the crowds are. They are there for a reason. I started off in a quieter area and wished I had just gone to the hot spot from the off.

We spent a day driving to come here and it was super crowded. I had heard that it can be dangerous to swim here if you venture out too far so I was worried about getting too close to the rocks. Water was murky and didn't see many fish. This seems like mostly a Locals place and we didn't feel... More
