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 swimsuit optional beach.

A major attraction of Orient Bay is of course the nude beach and the world´s famous Club Orient, the island´s only naturist resort at the southern end of the beach.

Clothing is optional in front of the Club, and it is publicly accessible. The other parts of the beach has more clothing, but in fact you may encounter nude 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.

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

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