 Travel / Destination     

Aruba is a 33km long island of the Lesser Antilles, lying 27kms north of the coast of Venezuela, in the southern Caribbean Sea. Along with Curacao and Bonaire, it makes a group commonly referred to as the ABC Islands of the Leeward Antilles, which is the southern archipelago of the Lesser Antilles. Aruba is a part of the Netherlands and its citizens hold Dutch passports.

BABY BEACH ARUBA

BABY BEACH ARUBA

Aruba is known for its dazzling white, sandy beaches on both the western and the southern coasts of the island. These are comparatively more sheltered from the fierce and often, brutal ocean currents, and hence, have witnessed the most tourist development in the island.

BABY BEACH ARUBA is on the opposite side of mainstream Aruba, that is, where the ships dock. Therefore, a single day visit to Aruba will not be enough to discover the baby beach in-depth. It is one of the most favored, if not, the most favored snorkeling site of the world.

The baby beach came to originate by a chance-happening. When oil became a prime possession way back in the 1930's, workers and their families sought a comfortable place to sit back and relax close to their homes. Hence, the baby beach cove was partly enclosed using concrete and rocks in order to form a quiet beach area. These workers inadvertently built something that has risen to fame for vacationers, the world over.

Over time, the cove filled with sand and made it perfect for families to wade and enjoy a pleasing beach vocation. The baby beach sits proudly right off the small Lago community which came into existence due to the workers of the then "Lago Oil refinery".

BABY BEACH ARUBAis also the preferred beach for the locals too. Everyone likes to spend their weekend there and know the beach through and through. They will guide you to some of the best coral formations on the island, all, within snorkeling distance, providing ample opportunity to sunbathe and snorkel.

The beach is quite a distance from the numerous hotels and resorts, so one must plan in advance and pack accordingly. Snacks, water, snorkel gear, beach towels, and disposable camera's are all a must have. Off late, though, a snack bar has opened which serves hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks.

There are shelters provided for shade, and also personal lounges available on rent. Some noteworthy tips include purchasing a disposable camera from home, as the local ones are available at inflated rates. Plus, the baby beach is jam-packed on weekends, so it would be a good idea to avoid the inconvenience and visit on a weekday. And, even though this goes without saying, sunscreen must always be a constant traveler with you.
