|About these ratings|
Aruba has the remedy for the overhyped, overcrowded sprawl you might be experiencing along Eagle or Palm beaches. Take a trip southeast to San Nicolas and Baby Beach, a popular shore for Arubans due to its shallow waters and easy waves. Recent beachgoers recommend spending time snorkeling near the left, rocky side of the beach.
This authentic Aruban experience is accompanied by small snack shops, and cabanas and beach charis are available for rent. And you'll see some smoke stacks in the distance as you lounge (as opposed to the clear Caribbean skies you'll view on the western side). Baby Beach is popular with families and a good alternative to the busy shores near the hotels.
