Baaiduinen is surrounded by the much older hamlets of Kinnum, Kaart (Kaard) en Horp. Baaiduinen is the youngest village on Terschelling and has only been recognized as a separate settlement in the 19th century.

Tourism has replaced dairy farming as the main source of income and most farms have been rebuilt to accommodate tourists.
