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.

This beach is recommended for tourists in vehicle rental or in tour group. Is a little bit out of the way from hotels beach front further north and there are no organized activities centers and no concessions. It's very quiet

Nice beach, but not my favorite beach. If you're in town for several days, its worth the trip to that side of the island. If time is tight, save the hour drive and stay on the other side of the island. As described, its a very very shallow beach. I'm sure it's great for kids. I'm not a big fan... More

White sand, tick; what a beautiful beach, unspoiled by 'major hotels' and serviced by refreshments by a locally run bar and grill. Downside are the toilet arrangements but they will get this sorted. Loved our afternoon there. Not to be missed. Bring your own entertainment, lie back and enjoy the beauty.

Baby beach is one of the best beaches on the island of Aruba. We have been 4 times to Aruba and everytime we go baby beach is a must go to for at least a few days each trip. The nice cool shallow water is perfect for young children. The snorkling is good, not the best on the island but... More

Very nice beach for families. I agree with others, it is a long ride and if you are cruising please be mindful of the time it will take you to travel back to port! We rented Jeeps and did a self guided tour of the island, our last stop being baby beach to really relax and enjoy Aruba's beautiful white... More

Beautiful beach but long ride to get there. They charge a fortune to rent chairs and canopies. There is a restaurant on the beach.

This was our favorite beach on our visit. We went a number of times early in the morning, and practically had it to ourselves until 10-11am. My wife loved the snorking, my daughter loved poking around the rocks looking for hermit crabs and other critters (like eels and jellys), and my boys loved splashing around/wrestling in the water. I liked... More

Baby beach as the name indicates is a beach for young kids, the people that attends are mostly locals, the beach is large and clean, with plenty of palapas, they have public restrooms, perfect for snorkeling, the beach is shallow and the water crystal clear!

Baby Beach felt much less touristy than other areas on Aruba- many locals were enjoying the beach with their families, and enjoying the amazing shallow water. The beach shack had fantastic fresh fish, and of course Balashi Chill that was nice and cold. Take your beach chairs and spend the day!
