Location and Activities

Notice: After the passage of Hurricane Irma Sept. 5/6, 2017 Orient Bay changed its face significantly. All the beach bars were wiped out and the restaurants at the dining square suffered from the surge. The beach as such remained a beautiful white and wide sand beach. Rebuilding is already on its way and the first new beach bars opened in October 2017: The Perch Bar & Grill at Club Orient and the Alamanda Kitchen. We will keep you posted about the situation on Orient Bay as more news and pictures come in.
