Baby Beach is located at the south eastern tip of the island of Aruba, far away from the tourist or hotel district in an area known as Seroe Colorado. The sand is a beautiful powdery white color and the water is one of the most beautiful turquoise that I have ever seen. The calm water makes for perfect snorkeling. The water is also very shallow, so you can wade pretty far out while still being able to touch the bottom. There is also a concession stand located on the beach, and a beach rental stand where you can get chairs or beach toys.
This is a picture of my husband, Bruno and my son, Kevin showing me how shallow the water was at the point they were standing.
The odd part about this beach is that the Lago Oil Refinery is located on the horizon, which makes for a kind of bizarre contradictory landscape.
When I visited Baby Beach during the New Year 2007, it was not very crowded. It seemed to be mostly locals, maybe because of the long drive to get there. Although, it is also a popular place for cruise ships to stop.
