As the rules are very strict re cleaning and distancing some communities have chosen not to re-open the pools at all and some have restricted opening times so you would need to contact the specific community to find your answer.
Social distancing is something everybody should be doing anyway.

Absolutely agree. I was wondering more for the baby than me, masks and distancing dont bother us adults,  doing it all the time here at home. Also, can you use beaches  , swimming etc?

In our urb in Playa Flamenca the pool is open, with limited numbers and safe distancing enforced. It’s pretty easy to manage as we have 6 large parasols equi-distant, and only 4 people are allowed in/around each. This makes a max of 24 people - this is barely reached in normal circumstances, so not a problem here. Community rules and signs are posted on the entrance to the pool, sanitizer in a few locations, no requirement for face masks at all

The little one won't have to wear a mask but, as you say, you will be social distancing. Masks have to be worn at all times in public areas, even if social distancing can be maintained and you need to continue to wear them until you have placed your order or have actually got your drinks in bars and restaurants, I really can't remember which!
You will have to wear your mask until you reach your allotted space on the beach and if you walk up and down the beach but not for swimming. Today is the day when Spain virtually closes down and they head to the coast and I doubt if Covid is going to stop this happening to a great degree.
Somebody posted a link to a site which showed availability on beaches which I unfortunately didn't save, so if that kind member would re-post, that may help.
I imagine the more popular beaches are going to be very busy and you may have to wait for a space to become available. If you do get a space, I wouldn't leave towels etc and go off for a drink or food as you will lose your spot and have your belongings removed.
