One of the most developed, popular and beautiful beaches in all of St Maarten, this clothing-optional spot is a top attraction. At Orient Beach you’ll find great views of the bay, clear water and many excellent restaurants and bars that let you dine with your feet in the sand.
Certainly one of the most European-feeling beaches of the Caribbean, Orient Beach offers plenty to do in and out of the water, including live music, parasailing, jet skiing, windsurfing and also a strong undertow that makes sunbathing more popular than swimming. Club Orient, the island’s only nudist resort, sits on the southern end of the beach.
Visiting the beach and parking in the area is free. Umbrellas and beach chairs can be rented for a small fee.
