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.

Paradise beach

A beautiful beach on the island. It was also convenient for me since only took us 10 minutes by car. A beautiful beach with friendly people.

Lots of people rave about Baby beach because kids can stand in the water and be protected somewhat by rocks. I personally did not care for it and could not wait to get back to Palm beach. We had to rent chairs and an umbrella that you get for free at your hotel beach. The bathrooms were crappy. The view... More

Great for snorkelling. Lots of different kinds of fish. Nowhere to sit unless you rent one. No shade unless you rent an umbrella. Stopped here on our bus tour

Its a fair way out down the coast from Orangestad, but well worth the drive. Waters are calm, not as windy, and the beach is wonderful. You can walk out, and the water is not high and certainly not dangerous. Not too many fish to see compared with other Carribbean Islands. Ample car parking, and two snack/drinks bar. Beach chairs....

Baby beach is about 25 minutes from Oranjestad but totally worth the drive! They have two small snack spots there but would advise you to stop at the Valero close by before heading there to get beer, gas, and or drinks on the way!

Not too many reefs but for off the beach snorkeling pretty good. Lots of squid, schools of bait fish, and various other species that are great to see including scalpin, star fish and others I am unaware of. Everytime we visit Aruba this is a must stop.

One of our all time favourite beaches! The water is calm and clear, and you can walk out for a hundred yards and water is still just knee high. Walk a bit farther and the depth drops significantly, which makes it great for snorkelling! The nearby 'big mama' bar and restaurant serves terrific food! The parking lot was recently updated...

Baby Beach is the perfect beach for families with kids, not our case, and anyone who loves laying around in the water because of its shallow, current-less (except for the signaled areas) water. There were a lot of couples, families, groups of friends relaxing by the water, tanning and swimming. If you bring your scuba gear you get to see... More

My husband and I rented a car for our stay in Aruba, so we could drive all over the island. Baby Beach was one of the spots we wanted to check out because of the snorkeling. The water was so calm and clear and fantastic for swimming, floating and snorkeling. Not too overcrowded the day we came.
