If you're in Aruba for more than a couple of days, rent a care and spend a day here! it's a natural shallow lagoon with gorgeous turquoise water and white sandy beaches. There's also a nice restaurant, snorkel rental and restrooms. Very popular among locals. We absolutely loved it!

Baby beach is a great place for families and singles alike. It has about 10 palapa which are a must in the Aruban sun. Get there before 10 if you want your own. If you're solo, don't be surprised if a group asks to share the palapa- do it! They're likely fun, and will be happy to share food and... More

Joined the Land Rover tour with De Palm Tour to Baby beach...overall the trip is awesome..fun riding on the Land Rover over the national park. Lunch at the Arubaville was wonderful as well. Snorkel at the Baby Beach was amazing....saw many different variety of fish. Tour guide Angiello was very attentive and considerate. It was really a five stars trip!

So you are in Aruba, seen all of the beautiful beaches-now head to Baby Beach, a nice ride through the country and towns, go snorkeling and chill on the beach. Now you want some great food at a local bar with great history-only 1 place to go-Charlie's bar. Located in the working class neighborhood of San Nicolas, a colorful area... More

We drove to Baby Beach from Eagle Beach for the day and it was one of the best days. We found a hut to relax under and the shallow water to lap over you was so refreshing. The snorkeling was fun you just had to fight the waters a bit. The water is crystal clear! There are restrooms, but you... More

The snorkel at Baby Beach was amazing! as you go into the deeper area there is an actual fish tunnel! There were thousands of fish in this area! They seemed to swarm around you as you got further out! It is a beautiful beach and chairs are available to rent and do not forget the frozen peas! We had fish... More

Don't understand the reviewer talking about the oil refinery being a turn off. The oil refinery has been shut down for years now. This beach is on the local side of the island, about 30 minutes from the airport. It's a nice place for snorkeling and staying away from the busy areas of the island.

The beach is nice but having an oil refinery butting up the beach was a definite turn-off for my husband and I. Unless you are staying close by and we never saw any hotels, I don't know why you would drive from Orangestad to this beach when there are nicer beaches close to Orangestad. It didn't do anything for us... More

Upon arriving in Aruba we asked about the best local beaches and were directed to this beach. It requires a little drive from Oranjestad....about 20-30 minutes. The beach itself is nice with calm water. The water is shallow and protected by a shore/wave break of rocks. There is a bar at the beach that serves food and drinks (alcohol included).... More
