Orahov Do (also Orahovi Do, Orovi Do, Cyrillic Орахов До; literal translation is "walnut dale") is a village in Ravno municipality Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was formerly part of the Trebinje municipality, up until the Bosnian War. It is only a few kilometers away from the border with Croatia on the road from the Adriatic coast to Popovo polje.

The village is inhabited mostly by Croats. In the 1991 census, the village had 42 residents, including:[1]

  • 38 (90.47%) Croats
  • 4 (9.52%) Serbs

It is notable for having been the birthplace of a Dubrovnik trader Nikola Bošković, father of the famed astronomer Ruđer Bošković.
