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.

Baby beach has always been a good stop in Aruba even with the storm ruining some of the rock formation that make a passage way to the ocean. It has been majorly built up within the past two years but is still a great spot. At least with more people there you don't see the topless girls anymore. The one... More

This beach was surreal. The sand is so soft my wife took some in a bag to bring home. We snorkelled and just laid in the water. A perfect day.

A bit of a drive, but well worth it. For awhile we had the beach to ourselves. Straw umbrellas with tables is a nice touch, snack stand with flintstone motif was cute. Please do not swim with rental keys in your pocket, or you'll have to depend on the kidness of strangers as we did.

This is a great beach because it is on a lagoon protected from the open water. It has great snorkeling and you can rent gear there for $10 a day.

Aruba isn't a large island so the ride here wasn't too bad. We visited via a DePalm tour and we knew we only had an hour or so to 'enjoy' this beach and it was an hour too long. Don't get me wrong- the water is so blue and beautiful and there is a shallow area to snorkel, which we... More

1. Snorkeling is well below average. Dead coral, heavily abused. There are fish to see, squid, but there is no coral. All dead. I posted some underwater shots for reference. Aruba is not great for snorkeling anyway. 2. View of refinery in the background is ever-present. Some abandoned warehouse completes the view. If you are into "Mad Max" movies it... More

A lovely day trip. The water is very clear and it is a good sight for snorkeling. Be aware that you need to pay for deckchairs.

Wonderful beach for all ages. Depth is no more than 4 feet all the way to the reef area, and the water is crystal clear.

The jetty has some amazing snorkeling bring Aqua socks because it can get rough. Locals can sell you beach chairs with little tents.
