Spring Bay is a secluded, sandy beach on the southeast end of Orcas Island. From this destination on the island, you have a panoramic view across the water to Obstruction, Blakely, Lopez and Shaw islands. In addition to island views, the destination will likely provide a view of bald eagles, harbor seals, sea birds and an extensive variety of intertidal sea life.

Spring Bay is also located on the south end of Obstruction Pass State Park. From the beach, you have access to 5 miles of trails that wind through the state park.
