    We were in between the opening, as we had been many times before. The current happened to grab us just right I guess. No one else was with us in the water. We did have a friend who stayed on the beach. So even if we had yelled for help, no one would have heard us, and no one would have seen us drown. Very scary!!

    Wow scary indeed.
    Let it heed a warning for people not to venture thru the openings.

    Cool Safety first

    Yes, don't go through the openings unless your with a experience guide in the water. That's a rule for all the snorkeling spots on the island.

    There were 2 lifeguards guarding the opening last week. One in the water and one on the rocks on the south west side. My brother said the snorkeling there was a waste of time and the snorkeling at Mike's Reef and Boca Catalina were MUCH MUCH better!

    The place was crowded, but the beer being sold was ice cold.

    The snorkling at Baby Beach isn't the best but it is the easiest. It was very good for my mother-in-law and entry and exit from the water was easy. Going back to Aruba next week and we'll do Baby Beach again.

    Let me preface by saying I understand that Wikipedia is a human edited resource and only as accurate as those entering the info.

    Having said that, Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baby_Beach,_Aruba claims that Baby Beach is "man made" without citing a source whereas aruba.com makes no mention. http://www.aruba.com/things-to-do/baby-beach

    Anyone know the truth?

    In former times, Baby Beach was called "Little Lagoon". Looking at those old articles and photos, considering that there is a natural reef between the ocean and the Little Lagoon/Baby Beach makes me believe it was originally made by Mother Nature and maybe later on enlarged by mankind during the time when the Esso Club and the Lago Colony were built. JMO.

    Here is the link to those Esso News, I love those vintage pictures and the stories!
