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.

The half moon beach is a protected area free from the waves, on the tip of the Island. They have rentable palapas and folding cabanas on the beach for sun protection, or you can just set up a chair under the many trees along the beach. Recommend bring chairs and snacks. Great for kids as the water in this cove... More

We spent a day at this beach! We had an extended family from 64-4 months and we all loved it. We rented 2 of the tents and 4chairs. My 3 year old granddaughter could not get enough of the water. We had lunch at Big Mama which was typical bar food with cool tables and gave us access to the... More

We heard great reviews about this beach and had to check it out. It is amazing! Most of the beach/lagoon is soft, white sand that gently deepens to about 4 ft. of water. Also there is a rocky waterway that is good for snorkeling. Many fish were found. Be aware- riptides are prevalent if swimming outside the gentle lagoon.

I love this beach! Bring snorkeling gear for kids and adults, and an underwater camera! They built it up since the last time I was there 5 yrs ago. They have an awesome restaurant and bar on the beach now.

We drove from the low rise hotels to the far end of the island and found a nice round harbor with excellent snorkeling and a nice restaurant and bar. Dive shop on site also. This beach is a must see for all coming to Aruba. Excellent for families also.

Although Baby Beach is " the place to go " - it is only average- the snorkeling is not as good as at Malmok or Arashii Beach. The view of the old Oil Refinery takes away from the overall "Naturalness" . The Restaurant on the Beach serves watered down drinks and the food is only average. -the waiters are very... More

There are 2 boats patrolling the oil refinery that constantly fire machine gun warning shots. that also kills the atmosphere. I don't know which came first, the snorkeling beach or the oil refinery but they don't go well together. You will see fish if you snorkel, but no reefs. It seems that there is a man made channel that somehow... More

A beautiful beach for a day trip where you can snorkel, swim and relax. The bay is very shallow but around the reef it is great for snorkeling. There is a beach bar and restaurant . There are palapas; beach chairs and cabana huts are available for rent. The washrooms cost $2 so wear your swimsuit as there are no... More
