One major attraction of Orient Bay is the clothing optional beach and the famous Club Orient (“Club O”), the island´s only naturist resort at the southern end of the beach. Clothing is optional in front of the Club, though the nude beach there is open to the public. The northern end of the beach, near the hotels, has more clothing, but in fact you may encounter nude sunbathers anywhere. The highest concentration of naked people however is at Club Orient. Orient 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.

Legally, except for the Club Orient beach, none of the beaches is officially declared as a nudist beach. The French side widely tolerates nudity as long as it doesn’t have exhibitionist character. The Dutch side tolerance is more restrictive and somewhat accepted at Cupecoy beach.

More French side beaches with very few visitors and sometimes used as clothing optional areas are:

Baie Rouge at Terres Basses (Low Lands)
Long Bay at Terres Basses (Low Lands) near La Samanna hotel
Plum Bay at Terres Basses (Low Lands)
Happy Bay – access by walking from Friar’s Bay (or Mont Choisy, when renting a property in the gated community)
Coralita Beach North of Oyster Pond
Petites Cayes at the Northern tip of the island. 20 minutes walk from Anse Marcel or Cul de Sac
