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.

We love this beach. It is a must each year we visit Aruba! The water is crystal clear. The water is shallow and calm which makes for great area for kids to play. We rented a cabana and two chairs for $47 or else you don't get any shade. Bring frozen peas and go to the end of the rocks... More

This another beautiful beach. More family oriented in that the area has shallower water area and distance. Just as gorgeous as the other beaches.

Baby beach is beautiful. it is basically a lagoon with a coral reef and the ocean nearby. the water is not deep and very safe. no waves. very calming to just sit in the water and lounge. the reef nearby is fun to snorkel . lots of fish to see of all sizes and very safe. Great for little kids.... More

I would be willing to bet that nearly every hotel in the tourist part of Aruba has a better beach than this one. (Our fave hotel is on Eagle Beach -- can't do better than that.) Baby Beach was about an hour's drive from the lowrise hotel area, through decidedly NON-scenic areas of Aruba. I suppose it was interesting to... More

We had a rental car and took advantage to head down to Baby beach. It was an amazing find! Not very busy, amazing shallow, clear water. Worth the visit for sure.

this is a great swim and sun beach. There is an area behind a breakwater where the current runs and keeps the water very clear. It isnt very deep and you can enter "upstream" and let it carry you down to the swimming area. It was fun with plenty of fish but no live coral. Take some frozen peas in... More

Beautiful beach, small area and very shallow. The blue water is beautiful. The ground is hard and very windy.

Great beach for snorkelling. The lagoon behind the coral wasn't too deep and full of exotic fish. Like swimming in your fish tank

Baby beach is getting crowded....the chairs and the sunshades that you rent...way over priced for ripped and broken things....However the snorkeling was fantastic, so, although we did spend $ on the chairs and covers, we didnt use them.....we just stayed in the beautiful water. It is prob. one of the nicest beaches ever.......
