Orleans Travel Guide

Orleans

North of Oyster Pond and the Étang aux Poissons (Fish Lake) is the island's oldest settlement, also known as the French Quarter. You can still find a few classic, vibrantly painted West Indian–style homes with the original gingerbread fretwork. There are also large areas of the nature and marine preserve that is working to save the fragile ecosystem of the island.
