Baby Beach provides a blissful setting suitable for kids, as well as inexperienced snorkelers and swimmers. Within a calm lagoon, the shallow waters and gentle waves allow you to wade out far from shore and still touch the bottom. A number of snack kiosks and rustic huts complete the authentic Aruban setting. This makes a good alternative to the busier beaches near popular hotels, and several outfits offer snorkeling gear and beach beds for rent.

  • Beautiful beach. Must see. The west side of the atoll is choppy as the waves come directly at it, but the east side where Big Mama’s Grill is located is calm. Lots of space for snorkeling and you might see the sea turtle that lives there. Parking and use of the beach is free, but be ready to pay $60 a hour to use one of the canopies.
  • Visited this beach briefly but was our favorite of the island. Not so many people and wonderful swimming and the view of the Bay is beautiful.
