We study the prospects for observing coherent neutrino-nucleus elastic scattering with a noble liquid detector operated in a low-energy beta beam. We compute the expected signal rates and background contamination from different sources. We conclude that, with a one tonne detector, 1 yr of operation will suffice to observe this reaction with a very high statistical significance.
