French St. Martin
Orient Beach: Clothing optional paradise
on the "Riviera" of French St. Martin

Orient Bay, or in French "Baie Orientale", sweeps around a blue cove, facing east, as the name suggests. The 2 mile long, white powdered sand beach is protected from the Atlantic waves by a reef, and the bottom has a very gradual slope.

The area has been recognized as a marine reserve, so snorkeling in the marine park is just incredible. There is also great snorkeling off nearby Caye Verte (Green Key), one of the small beautiful islands dotting the coast, such as Tintamarre and Pinel Island do.

Orient Beach is the most developed, the most popular and the busiest beach on the island, probably the most famous beach in the entire Caribbean. The beach is reputed as much for its natural beauty and setting as it is for being the island´s foremost clothing optional beach.

A major attraction of Orient Bay is of course the nude beach at the world´s famous Club Orient, locally called "Club O", the island´s naturist resort at the southern end of the beach. Clothing is optional in front of the "Club O", and it is publicly accessible. The other parts of the beach is a casual beach, primarily not clothing-free, but in fact you may encounter nude or topless sunbathers anywhere.

Orient Bay is the only beach on St. Martin with a large number of beach bars and restaurants directly located on the beach, and ample of parking right next to the beach.

Water sport facilities are available, such as jet skis, sailing boats, parasaiiling, and some kid's activities such as water trampolines.

Lodging consists mainly of studios and apartments close to the beach and villas in the uphill part of Orient Village.

Orient Beach is a truly majestic setting with the mountains rising up all around. Not to mention the beautiful tiny islands of Green Key, Tintamare and Pinel Island just off shore.

Lined with tiki huts, colorful beach chairs and restaurants, the sands of Orient are always full of action. Many compare Orient Bay to the French Riviera, the "Saint Tropez of the Caribbean" with its pampering services and ambiance.

The Bay actually consists of five main beaches, called the "5 stars of Orient Bay" Kontiki, Kakao, Bikini Beach, Waikiki and Coco Beach, named after their respective beach bars and each next to another. In fact, Orient Bay boats of numerous restaurants and bars along the beach, a panoply of water sport activities, boutiques and shops, hotels and resorts.

The Southern part of the beach is where nude people dominate, close to the area of Club Orient. Here, some may even pop up in restaurants dressed by their skin only!

Here you can stroll in the surf and view garbed and ungarbed sun-worshippers in all shapes and sizes passing by. There is even a nude cruise, which appears to allow some sun-worshippers to get sunburn on literally all parts of their bodies. So where ever you are on Orient Bay, never forget to put on enough sunblocker!

Strains of Salsa, Samba, or Merengue music waft over you from the trendy bars that are dotting the beach.
