Orient Bay is home not only to the Famous Orient Beach but also to numerous private villas, boutique hotels, resort, fine restaurants, grocery store, hair salon and many other stores.
Orient Bay St Martin is a mini town of its own. Once you are there you don’t need to go out if you want. Orient Bay is mostly a private town open to the public (without fee) but with gated entry. So Orient Bay is very safe.
Access to Orient beach is free as it is the case on all St Maarten beach. Orient Beach is famous for its restaurants on the beach that offer fine food, drinks and incredible parties. Orient Beach is called the “St Tropez of the Caribbean” due to the parties and the VIP that come enjoy the sun and the sea. In addition to that you can practice most of the watersports activities that exist.
Orient Beach is also famous thanks to its southern part that is a public clothing optional beach. This part of Orient is also home to Club Orient a clothing optional resort (in fact you have to be nude to stay at Club Orient St martin).
Orient Beach is about a 2 miles long powdery white sand beach and is worth a visit!
Beside Orient beach and its restaurants you can go to Orient Bay village where you will find fine dining restaurants for dinner. There you will the choice between different style of cuisine (french, thai, italian) and every restaurant is worth the visit ! So I hope you’ll stay long enough to try all of them !
You also have some other restaurants in Orient Bay such as La Plantation or L’Astrolabe that worth a try too !!
