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 was a delight to visit with my 2 and 1 year old kids. The water is crystal clear and shallow (something between knee and hips deep). Almost no waves. My kids had their arm floaties on and could hang at the water by themselves. We of course were always close by, but it was not necessary to be... More

We went the day after Carnival not knowing it was a 'holiday', there were very many people there, mostly families who appeared to be enjoying themselves. The beach was a little too crowded for us so we hung out at the beach bar after our short swim, all in all a nice time while we were there.

Make the trip down. Not crowded and water is calm and pool- like due to natural break walls. Plenty of parking, food and drink.

If you want to take a swim out of the crowdy Palm Beach with local people you should come to this small beach on the south coast. The sea is wonderful and it's a perfect spot for snorkeling but when the sea currents are not too strong. On the beach there is a rent service for sunbeds, snorkels and masks.... More

What a find . This beach is the best on the south side of the island. The water is rough with a undertow but really pretty . Do go there if in Aruba.

One of the unique beach in Aruba where you can go in the crystal clear water, keep walking for about 200 feet into the ocean ( waist high water) and still see your feet!!! Beautiful sight any time of the day. Highly recommended.

First off baby beach is a long drive away but well worth it. The scenery on the way to the beach is great especially along the coast. Parking was great lots of spaces. The sand is soft on your feet and the water is nice and warm to lay in and look at the sky, just beautiful scenery and calm... More

It hurts my heart to give a Caribbean beach only 3 out of 5...but that's the way it is here. It is beside the refinery, so you have that on one side and the oil rigs straight out. Begrudging chair service, and almost the same in the bar area. Drinks were overpriced and weak. IF you have kids though, this... More

Baby Beach is a beautiful white sandy beach with a protected cove that makes for mild waves. There are plenty of cabanas and lounge chairs for rent, and there is a restaurant on site to grab a bite to eat. The sand was like powder, the water was warm, and there was plenty of parking. My favorite beach on Aruba.... More

You will need to drive here and it's at the southern tip of the island from the high rise hotel so I would recommend going here only if you happened to rent a car. great beach, glad I went once but next time when I stay in high rise hotels on Eagle/Palm Beach, I won't go back simply because why...
