The glistening waters at Orcas Island create a green oasis that locals call ‘the Emerald Isle. Here is a calm, magical mix of arts and culture, captivating forests, pristine lakes and endless outdoor possibilities. The 57 square miles of Ocra Island are rural and hilly, an ideal challenge for cyclists. One of the most beautiful parks on the island is the Moran State Park offering much to do including horseback riding.
