Baby Beach, San Nicolas

(4/5 based on 3,200+ reviews on the web)
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. For Baby Beach and beyond, use our San Nicolas vacation planner to get the most from your San Nicolas vacation.

  • The best beach in Aruba. Eagle Beach and Palm Beach are beautiful, but are the most commercial and publicized, by being in the hotel zone of the island. Baby Beach is to the South, and there is no hotels, hotels near. Only the town of san Nicolas, which is small. But the beach is amazing, transparent, a swimming pool, natural, with a beach without holas and transparent, perfect for snorkeling, relax, enjoy the Sun, fall for Aruba. The most beautiful beach I've ever met so far!

  • Lovely beach, with some calmer water than other beaches because it is more a Bay than equal to the sea. Really enjoyed the view and the clean beach!
