The beach got its name for the odd orange hue that sometimes emanates from the sand and water. Just off shore is a sunken cargo ship that visitors can explore if they are keen on snorkeling or diving.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business. Happily, the off-shore waters are of good snorkeling quality, so grab some equipment if you want to do some underwater exploration.
