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.

Beautiful little beach

This beach is a great way to end a day four wheeling through Arikok National Park. The beach is clean, calm, and crystal clear. There are some good places to eat there too.

We have been to Baby Beach every time we have gone to Aruba. The water is spectacular!! They offer snorkeling as well, but take your own equipment. They rent tents, $40.00 a day and chairs for $8.00 each. We did not rent either because they have gone up on their prices. This is a locals beach and I understand they... More

The combination of water and great snorkeling is always wonderful. Just a short drive from Oranjestad. Never too crowded.

Baby beach was such a great escape for the hotel beaches. The water is warm and so clear. The snorkeling was really good. Bring something to drink and eat, cause the prices there are expensive. We found a nice place in the shade to relax when we wanted a break from the sun.

If you are looking for waves don't go here. Directions to the beach are a little sketchy but if you keep going you'll eventually hit it. If you swim out to the rocks you'll see some great fish

We stopped by Baby Beach during a tour of the island the one day we rented a car. The beach was secluded and is near-by the old refinery. There is a restaurant on the beach. If you don't spend money at the restaurant, restroom usage will cost you $2.00.There is plenty of parking available. We made it a short visit... More

All public and free. Good parking. Bring a chair and umbrella. Great vistas and easy water. Crowded. Off hours would be best.

This is a very small and shallow beach, thus perfect and frequented by families. There is parking, a grill beach chairs and large wind-stoppers for rent. Chairs looked very out of shape costing 8$, and wind-stoppers 40$! There are a mere 5 palapas which are always taken unless you want to show up at 6am to grab them first; nothing... More

This is a delightful beach with a protected swim area. Clear waters, sandy bottom and beautiful breezes! The area still lacks chickees for the number of visitors and the rentals for shelters is very expensive. We were offered a single personal shelter for $56. Facilities are minimal for such a popular area! Still well worth the visit for a quick... More

It was about a 45 minute cab ride from the Marriot... After exiting cab and walking to water approached and asked if we wanted to rent a hut-2 chairs and hut $55 for the day- no thanks.. Area along the wall was absolutely filthy, maybe for 55 bucks a hit they could spend some money cleaning up. Beach like all... More
