Although it recquires a 30 min drive from the Resort area, this is a beautiful, quite and well serviced beach (expensive, though: 45$ daily tent rental). It has a nice beach restaurant with average food. HIghly recommended

I don't understand the other reviews - it's like we were at a different beach. The current was so strong through the "reef" area that I couldn't stay in position to enjoy the view - and I used to be a lifeguard! The fish are clearly trained to stay in the area by the regular feedings by tour groups. The... More

Stopped here as part of a tour. Nothing special here. Water is cloudy and current can be strong. There are lots of fish but hard to see in cloudy water. This beach does not compare to beaches we have seen in Caymans and Turks.

At lands end in the southwest, baby beach is a nice family beach. Beautiful blue water, shallow sandy bottom. No for watersports, but a nice beach for relaxing and cooling off.

We went on a tour with De Palm and this stop was included, sorry to say that after hearing so so much about it, was kind of dissapointed, the day we went was not sunny, and was very very windy, did not see any of the famous fish that it is known for. My son and husband did go further... More

One of very few beaches that are sheltered from the wind, making it the perfect place for bringing your kid to a safe haven for snorkeling, to bad that there isn't a coral reef, but only a, probably, man-made "haven" for tropical fish, and since it is a stopover for many of the island tours you basically see a lot...

At the end of Baby Beach there is a natural barrier that was created from the hurricaines. It provides a channel to snorkel in. It is the best snorkeling ever. Very clear waters with a slight curent that takes you from one end of the channel to the other. Lots to see, huge brain coral, and fish. A must see... More

Baby Beach is a special treasure hidden away on the south eastern tip if the island. We visited about six years ago and saw the remains of a once trendy vacation spot. Upon our return, we were pleased to see a restaurant, numerous palapas and the "work in progress" for a parking lot. It is a beautiful location and we... More

Very pretty beach with shallow clear water - great for families. If you like the sound of ocean waves this beach is not for you. Be sure to take your beach towel or chair as you have to pay to rent chairs on this beach. Glad we went and seen the beach but preferred the beach at our resort where... More
