Great beach and water is super clear. My wife and I did this beach to experience a clothing free vacation. A little intimidating at first, but the feeling was wonderful. Recommend to all.

Hard to complain about a beach like this. It's clean, the sand is white and soft. The waves are fun enough to call waves and soft enough for a toddler to frolic in. I don't like paying $25 usd for 2 lounge chairs and an umbrella but I suppose that's how it works here so I paid it.

We stopped off in St Maarten while on a Caribbean Cruise and found this to be the best of all the Islands that we had visited. Just a short water taxi from where the ship stopped we found a wonderful beach lined with numerous shops, restaurants and bars. Being a "Duty Free" Island their were plenty of bargains to be...

Relaxing, fabulously gorgeous water, beautiful sandy beach! Sit back and take in the beauty of this area. You have the option of going to the clothing optional beach if you'd like too! Chairs and umbrellas available for a fee.

Stopped here while on a tour of the Island. Good beach for all the usual things done on a beach. Highlight for us was watching a guy walking through the sea followed by loads of fish that he was feeding. Plenty of places to get a drink and snack too.

This beach does NOT disappoint! White sand,clear blue water, great restaurants & super fun bars galore! There is a lot of activity going on, yet it is not so commercialized that you can't relax. Check out staying at one of the many condo's you can rent out by the week(s)! You get get fantastic prices with all the comforts of... More

Plenty to do. Not for people just trying to relax and soak up the beauty of St Martin. But there are plenty of beaches you can do that. We were with another couple without kids but I imagine this is the place to go with a family. Some beach vendors hawking wares and massages but they didn't bother us. Plenty... More

Orient Beach is a must try! First of all, the beach is a beautiful Beach. The water is also perfect.. It's not a quiet spot. Instead it's a very lively and fun spot. You can choose one of 2 ways, either bring your own Beach chairs, food and drinks. Have fun your own way. The other option is there are... More

For those of you that are interested or afraid to ask. We were on Orient Bay for 10 days in March and this is what we observed and experienced. We would walk the beach in the morning (7am) and yes, there were both men and women walking the full length of the beach nude. You would usually see the same... More
