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.

Went as part of an island tour. The water on the southern side (hotel-side) is certainly gorgeous but not great where we were for snorkeling. Baby Beach was. There were lots of fish to follow around and the water in the little inlet was easy to navigate. Very enjoyable 75 minutes. Take $1 if you need to change into your... More

Our all island tour brought us to Baby Beach as our last stop prior to returning to our cruise ship. Nice beach in a poor setting - view of the shuttered refinery. We attempted to eat a late lunch at the restaurant (Big Mama's), but after sitting for ten minutes without anyone acknowledging our presence, we left. Didn't miss much... More

We went to this beach as part of a tour. The water is very calm, not many waves near the shore. You will need to walk far out into the water before you get waist deep. Many locals frequent this beach but it does not get very crowded. There are a few local "shacks" that serve food but no big... More

Well worth the drive from the hotel areas for calm water and sandy bottom. perfect conditions for a day of snorkeling or just hanging out. Especially good for kids or elderly. Make the trip even more worthwhile by going to Zeerover while you're at this end of the island!

This is a very nice beach where you can find the locals who are wanting to get away from us, (while we are attempting to immerse into their world) This is less commercial than any of the other beaches, but worth the find.

Our visit to this beach was by far the highlight of our Aruba vacation. The reef at this beach is ideal for snorkeling, and if you bring your own equipment, you won't be sorry. There were so many kinds of beautiful and bright fish. Plus, the water was clear as day. The beach is great for little kids too, as... More

We were taken here as the last stop on our island tour. We were told by a friend to make sure we get to Baby Beach! We didn't see the attraction to this particular beach. The water was littered with seaweed, you had a wonderful view of the abandoned refinery and the air stunk. The water itself was ok, as... More

We have visited Baby Beach many times over the years. It is a great place to snorkel with the whole family. The water is shallow near the shore-great for little ones and first time snorkelers. Farther out their is a reef where you will find lots of fish. You can still stand in areas. Beware that on the other side... More

The beach is nice, and it's interesting seeing the waves crushing just beyond the barrier/breakwater area. Beware: there are rocks at the sea bottom; and because of its close proximity to an oil refinery (not a good idea from an environmental point of view, and unless your idea of tropical paradise is looking at the ugly commercial structures of an...
