It was a beautiful beach and we had a fun, easy shore dive from there. I only wish we would have had more time to enjoy hanging out on the beach.

We rented a car and drove to Baby Beach which is located on the eastern side of the island a 40 minute drive from the Marriott. This is not a resort so if you want something your paying for it. A chair is $8.00. A cabana with 2 chairs $47.00. Snorkels $8.00. The restroom is privately owned, so if you... More

We visit Aruba often and love the seclusion of baby beach. This year we were slightly disappointed at how many people were there and it felt crowded. Still. One of our favorite places for the simple beauty and calm waters. Super snorkeling area. We have a car for the week so transportation isn't a problem. It is a bit far... More

Protected small bay with gorgeous color. Did some snorkeling here. Not too great. Liked snorkeling at Boco Catalina better where all the snorkel boats go.

The beach itself was worth the drive. Beautiful sand, clear water. Not terribly crowded on a weekday afternoon. We ventured over to a little reef (out past the rope that was no doubt telling us not to cross) and found some awesome snorkeling! Nice for beginners, but loads of fish!

Beautiful beach and wonderful snorkeling! The water is amazing... So clean and clear. Great for families. Public bathrooms as well. Current is strong, swimmers beware. Beautiful beach, a must see!

We drove from near the lighthouse to Baby Beach. It is about a one hour drive. The water is shallow and there is nothing around there except a few huts and a store or two that sells food and rents beach items. It was not really worth it as there is so much more to see and do in Aruba.... More

In comparison to Eagle beach, it's not nearly as nice. To rent a lounge chair, the guy quoted $8, are you kidding!!?? To use the restroom, you must request a 'ticket' and a person joins you to unlock the door. They wait until you're done and relock the door. Food & drink service was extremely slow.

Awesome beach with knee deep, clear blue, and calm, beautiful water. The snorkeling was okay but not the best on the day I was there. The guys running the rentals were so helpful and friendly! Food, restrooms, chairs were all available! Awesome place I would definitely rent a car and go back - it was a $35 cab ride from... More
