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 beach and water were gorgeous, calm. We were there 9:30 - 11:30 and it was not crowded but a tour bus got there as we were packing up. Plenty of huts to sit at. If you want to rent, chairs were $8. We did not snorkel; just swam and played catch with the kids. 2 complaints and reason for... More

We had the pleasure of renting a cottage in the area so this (and Rodgers Beach) were our go to beaches. Because many tourists come from the main high and low rise areas on a tour, it can get quite busy and feel like a bit of an invasion when the DePalm tour and Safari type tours show up. We... More

This is a great place to just chill and snorkel (bring own or rent) . FYI you really need flippers as your against current but you can still manage w/o and see a lot. We saw a group of squid, clown fish and so much more towards the rocky area. There is a bar/eatery area that has since last year... More

We went to Baby beach with only one purpose in mind, and that was to snorkel. What a beautiful beach! The beach front stretches close to 1 mile, or 1.5 km. There are 2 long lines of reef inside of the lagoon that are chocked full of amazing sites and countless tropical fish. This beach is very popular by the... More

I went here to go snorkeling. There was a lot of trash in the parking lot which didn't impress me. But I did like the beach. It is a shallow area. But know that if you go there to go snorkeling... The snorkeling is near the rocks on the left hand side if you are looking out at the water.... More

I have been going to this beach, on and off, since 2000, and just learned (last week) about the best place to snorkel at Baby Beach. When you enter the beach, walk all the way to the far left where the rocks are stacked up (where people stack rocks as wishes). Walk past the stacked rocks and enter the water.... More

Sandy big beach, not crowded, great water for kids. Good snorkeling by reef. Lots of broken glass and bottle caps! May want to wear water shoes. Spectacular view. When we first arrived, we walked through the trees and we all gasped at how beautiful it was. Lots of shady spots on the sand with tiki huts and trees. Rum reef... More

Went here as part of one of the stops on our excursion with ABC tours ultimate safari. This was our last stop for the beach and snorkeling. Clean white sand, no rocks, very shallow waters for kids so just the like namesake Baby beach. Snorkeling area is roped off. Very calm waters. Free parking, little restaurant with beer, ice cream,...
