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.

When you go to Aruba you hear a lot of talk about Baby Beach as it is a tourist attraction. We went there as part of our Jeep tour so we did not have a lot of time there. It was a gorgeous beach with beautiful water. There a restaurant on site to eat and a drink.

All the fish were great! We were out near the openings to the sea, but behind the roped off areas. It was beautiful. This is where all the oil company built the beach for employees in the 1930's. It is shallow, big and a great place to come and suntan, teach a young one how to swim, etc. Further out... More

We found the best snorkeling in Aruba at Baby Beach. There were literally thousands of fish of all shapes, sizes and colors. It's also a great place to just relax in a beach chair and people watch. We did not have any trouble finding a shady spot. I did not see any public restrooms at the beach. Highly recommend!!

Baby beach is a drive from eagle beach. Everything there is a charge,the bathroom is a dollar. My husband was looking forward to the fish but very few were found. It wasn't crowded and we had a nice day.

This was a long drive for a disappointing beach. No fish. Very calm, so good for babies, as the name implies. There are many beaches just as nice north of Oranjestaad. I think this is mostly for local folks who are avoiding the beaches farther north.

We've beeb to Aruba a couple of times but had 12 hours this time. We hadn't been to southern tip so we rented an ATV and headed to Baby Beach. It was an easy drive and fun to see the day to day Aruba by ATV. Got to the coast and eventually Baby Beach. The whole coastline is beautiful just... More

It was a small beach, and very pretty, but not worth the long trip through a not so great area of the island. There were so many beaches much closer to our hotel, I probably wouldn't make the trip again.

Baby beach is a good beach if you don't know how to swim to good. It is on the very east side of the island over near san nichols. The water is only about waist deep in alot of spots and there is breakers on the ocean side of beach so it's not big wave action.The day we were there... More

Beautiful beach. Crystal clear blue water. Nice small snorkeling area with thousands of fish. Calm local beach. Mamas grill was tasty and a good price. Could rent chairs and snorkel equipment on site. Little hard to get to but only a little over 30 min from high rise section.

This has to be one of the calmest water of beaches on the island. Great view, snorkelling to if you go out by the break wall. Lounge Chairs available for small fee.
