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 was no better than eagle beach and the small restaurant on the beach was not overly friendly. We brought our swim wear with us and learned we would have to pay $1 each just to use the restroom. I would not recommend.

Baby Beach was the last stop on a 3 day Jeep excursion around the island, and I'm sorry that it wasn't the first. This was probably the clearest, most beautiful water I have ever seen in my life. There were hardly any people out here either. I guess it's too far from the high rises for most people. When we... More

Went here with a tour. We snorkeled and feed the abundant fish there. Lots to see in the water both coral and fish. Location was clean, friendly and not too crowded. Water varied in depth but would be nice for children.

This is at the southern-most end of the island. Beautiful beach, and other than the refinery in the background, beautiful views.

This beach is a little out of the way, but worth the drive. A beautiful body of water where u can walk out about 200 yards. Great for floating, swimming and around and beyond the breakers, snorkeling is good. There's a restaurant which we didn't try and a snack truck. Also Fred Flintstone's car and Dinno is on display for... More

I loved Baby beach it's surroundings are so calm & out of the major scene of the island. It's a beautiful calm beach to float & chill.

Baby beach is a great way to start exploring Aruba. The waves are non existent and the colors of the water are exquisite. Not much in terms of snorkeling except when you head to the left and into the channel, where are schools of tangs, and other fish.

It is the most beatiful beach of Aruba. The sea is wonderful and calm. Good for snorkelling (take your equipment). There is only one bar and the price for renting a chair and umbrella is very high! Do not do that! You can rent a chair and put it under the trees!

Pretty area. Was hoping to go snorkeling. The snorkeling must be on the other side of the pile of rocks where the waves seem dangerously high. Didn't venture off that far out. Beach chair guy charged $8 for each chair. Got bored and left. Would be a good beach for someone with small kids or someone who is affraid to... More
