Baby Beach#12 in Best Things To Do in Aruba
Price & Hours
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, which makes it great for kids.
Recent beachgoers recommend spending time snorkeling near the left, rocky side of the beach. Though visitors were generally pleased with this stretch of sand, they do warn that the restroom facilities are lacking.
This authentic Aruban experience is accompanied by small snack shops, and cabanas and beach chairs are available for rent. There are also shade huts, free to use to escape the sun for a bit. 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). Open 24/7, Baby Beach is popular with families and a good alternative to the busy shores near the hotels. Baby Beach sits about 45 minutes south of Palm Beach. Arubus offers service to Baby Beach, but the quickest way is probably by car or taxi.
