Oro Bay, Ile Des Pins

(4.4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Celebrated for its natural beauty, Oro Bay features transparent blue water surrounded by a dense pine forest. Bring your own or rent snorkeling gear and see the brightly colored tropical fish up close. When you get tired, rest on the beach or explore the stalls selling handmade baskets and fresh fruit. The trip to this beach involves a short hike and bit of wading through water. Thanks to its off-the-beaten-path character, this bay remains one of the area's secret gems, offering privacy in a lush natural setting.

  • We went through Golden path to the natural pool of the same name. The tide was low and we could cross on foot to the island of Ko Ngeaa Ka between banks of sandy and rocky patches where much wildlife, you could see mainly Bivalves, snails and ofiurae, a kind of Starfish of thin arms. The arm of the sea surrounded by trees called araucariaceas, of columnar form, and giving its name to the island.
