How to Access The Beach
The beach is located right off West Bay Road, and is easy to reach. However, it is usually only visited by guests of nearby hotels, and there is no dedicated parking area.

Amenities and Ambiance

Orange Hill Beach is around the same size, if not a little larger than the more popular Cable Beach, though without the crowds. Its soft sands are a favorite among those looking for a peaceful stroll along the calming coast.
