One of our favorite beaches for family swimming, good sand, easy to get to. Beautiful sunsets, grassy picnic areas and playground.

Secluded sandy beach with protected reef for snorkeling or swimming - although no life guards, very safe with rock pools for the little ones. Always saw a turtle or monk seal sunning on the beach. Great place to walk to see shooting stars at night.

My fiance' and I have enjoyed this spot for a few years now. She enjoys snorkeling with all of the amazing sea life right in front of you. Thousands of colorful fish accompanied by an occasional turtle or sea lion is almost a daily occurrence....More

A nice sheltered beach with very small waves makes it great with kids. Great place to snorkel. The endangered monk seals were sleeping on a portion of the beach but are roped off as it's illegal to touch them. Not too crowded.

Great place for children and adults that do not like big waves. Very warm water and sheltered area, lots of children splashing in the water. Popular with locals

We really enjoyed seeing the children in our group splashing in the water! Great water temperature! It was thrilling to see monk seals and sea turtles beach themselves for a rest.

I'm not. Abigail fan of big waves so this small beach was just my size. Tucked away in a neighborhood one of the locals secrets!

Baby beach is a great place for seeing sea life up close. Beach is fine for wading and snorkeling. There is plenty of space to spend day here. Parking is across the street and fills fast.

Not many spots to park alongside the road from Baby Beach. Across the street is a large resort, I think they may allow beach users to park there.
