4.4/5 based on 100+ 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.

  • Beautiful white sandy beach bordered by the pines. Ideal as a paddle. Crystal clear water and shallow.

  • right in front of Le Meridien, white sand beach with significant tidal variation; interesting rock formations. 
  • We reached the Bay on foot coming from the natural pools ... and just got here we knew heaven on Earth exists! Beach white sand, clear blue sea, from brochures, fish and shells are seen with the naked eye ... and then above all there was none, peace and silence that I will remember for a long time yet!
