Lying on the eastern side of the Buffalo River on the south end of the esplanade in The Quigney, Orient beach used to be known as the Sandy Beach until 1907 when a Russian vessel called the SS Orient ran aground on the shore.

Orient Beach is extremely safe – the breakwaters of the harbour mean that the surf is usually quite gentle here - and provides a real ‘meal’ of your day at the beach - there’s the Orient pier on which to stroll, the Water Tube, a filtered children’s pool, changing facilities and a refreshment kiosk.

It’s also very close to local hotels and shops, which means it’s a favourite amongst holiday makers, but there are plenty of large surrounding areas of green lawn, which means that there is usually room for everyone, even during peak season.
