Now this is the place to snorkel. Water was so clear and beach nice. The surrounding area not very pretty but the beach more than makes up for it.

If you are into snorkeling, you would love Baby Beach but if you are going just to experience another beach, I would skip it. We travelled from the High Rise area (expensive) and then when you get to Baby Beach, have to rent lounge chairs for $8 each and a shade cabana for $31. And then the snorkel equipment is... More

Worth the trip to the other side of the island. Great for families with small kids as water is shallow for a long time. Good snorkeling towards the rough side of the cove. Big surprise with Big Mamma's restaurant remodel. Good food and drinks. No need to pack a cooler. Say hi to Rauel. He is the best and will... More

The beach itself is beautiful. It's quite a ways away from anywhere else. Plan on making a day out of it. The have snacks and food available there. Many people brought their own coolers. Snorkeling here is supposed to be quite good.

We stayed on the North shore of Aruba, so this was quite a trip for us. However, it was well worth it. The beach is stunning and the water is even better. Shallow water and very few waves. Also a rocky area great for snorkeling. This beach is great for swimming, sunning, and snorkeling. Doesn't get better than that.

The beach is very pretty and the water is nice but this really is more of a wading pool than a swimming pool. The water never really got deeper than our waists. It would probably be great for families with little ones but for two twenty-somethings who wanted a lagoon to swim in we were a little disappointed.

A beautiful, clear lagoon with soft sand and warm water. You can rent lounge chair and shade cover. The only bathrooms belong to the restaurant so you have to purchase something to use the facilities.

As it named, the beach is really nice and friendly white sand beach, no worries for bringing small kids and play around (well, you always have to take care and keep an eye on your children when they are small). As Aruba is really "Island wide", around 20min. drive from Oranjestraat (Airport) all the way to the south of the... More
