Oro Bay, Ile Des Pins

(110+ reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
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. Before you head to Ile Des Pins, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Ile Des Pins itinerary builder, to make sure you see all that Ile Des Pins has to offer, including Oro Bay.
