Orange Hill Beach

Despite being the location of a couple beach hotels, the shore of Orange Hill Beach is quiet and offers visitors the kind of privacy that does not not exist at nearby Cable Beach.

Located on the island of New Providence, 2.0 miles west of Olde Town Sandyport, Orange Hill Beach is on the North coast of the island, You might want to drop by even if you aren't staying very close. At Orange Hill Beach, there's a nice balance between seclusion and amenities, which are easily accessed from the urban area nearby.

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. To top it off, the crystal waters are as blue as the sky, making this beach an ideal place to just relax.

Please note that public restrooms are not available, so if you're visiting with small children you might want to consider a different location. You will find the water here is clear enough for snorkeling, so bring along some equipment if you're looking to see what goes on beneath the surface.
