The name Onrus meaning 'restless' perfectly describes the pounding of the surf on the rocky coast. Onrus has a small beach, lagoon, natural rock pool and a large camping ground.

Being predominantly a residential area that hugs the coastline, Onrus is more suited for the nature lover, family groups or honeymoon couples to relax and enjoy a splendid and unforgettable holiday. 

There are dozens of rock pools where abundant marine fauna and flora can be observed and admired and the area is known for its snorkelling with the abundant crayfish attracting many visitors in season during November to April.

Onrus is surrounded by birding routes and nature trails with wonderful Milkwood trees and is a well known mecca for famous artists and authors which can be ascribed to the tranquility, beauty and peaceful pace at which one lives here.
