We stayed on the North shore of Aruba, so this was quite a trip for us. However, it was well worth it. The beach is stunning and the water is even better. Shallow water and very few waves. Also a rocky area great for snorkeling. This beach is great for swimming, sunning, and snorkeling. Doesn't get better than that.

The beach is very pretty and the water is nice but this really is more of a wading pool than a swimming pool. The water never really got deeper than our waists. It would probably be great for families with little ones but for two twenty-somethings who wanted a lagoon to swim in we were a little disappointed.

A beautiful, clear lagoon with soft sand and warm water. You can rent lounge chair and shade cover. The only bathrooms belong to the restaurant so you have to purchase something to use the facilities.

As it named, the beach is really nice and friendly white sand beach, no worries for bringing small kids and play around (well, you always have to take care and keep an eye on your children when they are small). As Aruba is really "Island wide", around 20min. drive from Oranjestraat (Airport) all the way to the south of the... More

I had not been down to this area of Aruba in some years. The refinery is now shut down and there are plans for a hotel in the area. There is now much more activity at this previously isolated spot for "The Colony" back in the days of the Lago refinery. The day I was there there was some surf... More

I didn't see any garbage when we went. It's a nice shallow beach with clear water, great for small children or people who can't swim well. It wasn't over crowded and I got wonderful beach pictures from our day here. The waves are very gentle in some places nonexistent. The refinery has been closed for a while from what a... More

We've been going to Aruba for 20 years, and stopped going to Baby Beach. We went back this time because we had guests with us who loved to snorkel. We quickly remembered why we stopped going: 1) The place is generally packed. 2) There are no restrooms. Think about the water quality. : ( 3) There is very little shade.... More

Lots of shallow warm water, but other than that, it's not much to talk about. It's apparently great for snorkeling, but we didn't try it. Lots of kids and families around. Chairs are available, but we were told to rent two for the day would cost $50, so we declined and simply stretched our towels out on the sand. The... More
