Orient Bay is perhaps the most developed of the beaches on the island, but it differs from other popular beaches in the Caribbean because there are no mega resorts in the sand, and very few standard hotels. Instead, rental apartments and condos line the beach, and just slightly further inland on the hill there are private homes that tourists can make their own during their stay.
