Directions from OBBR to Orient

Google maps shows no direct way to get to Club Orient from OBBR unless we drive completely around the island. Even though it looks like there are roads that will get us there. Which is true and how long will it take?

From the OBBR entrance road go to the end and turn right and down the hill and turn right again - this is the so called "scenic route" along the coast, it's a short run of less than 10 minutes to Orleans, another right turn at the main road takes you to Orient, total time is 20 minutes +/- There are signs along the way to assist you.

Thanks Bobcat, that sounds much better than the 1 hr 20 min I was seeing. Just over three weeks and counting.

You're welcome. Hope the map was helpful. You can see the road as it crosses over from the Dutch side to the French and follows the pond then along the coast. It's not a good nightime road along the caost part, narrow, a bit winding, dark but fine during the daylight hours.

Yes Elaine, it is a scenic lovely ride, we just have to be mindful not to become a part of the view.

Also love the ride from Cupecoy to Nettle Bay !!

Well, the driver isn't allowed to look! LOL

Nothing much to see between Cupecoy and Nettle Bay but walls and gates, but a nice drive none the less. In the daylight.
