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.

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.

The Southern part of the beach, close to the area of Club Orient, is the more ‘liberal’ beach stretch. Here, some may even pop up in restaurants dressed by their skin only! Clothing is optional in front of the Club, and it is publicly accessible. The other parts of the beach require proper swim suits by law, but in fact you may encounter topless or entirely naked sunbathers anywhere.

Water sport facilities are available, such as jet skis, sailing boats, paragliding, and some kid’s activities. Orient Beach is a truly majestic setting with the mountains rising up all around. Not to mention the beautiful tiny islands of Green Key, Tintamarre 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 St Martin” with its pampering services and ambiance.

Here you can stroll in the surf and view the sun-worshippers in all shapes and sizes passing by. Strains of Salsa, Samba, or Merengue music waft over you from the trendy bars that are dotting the beach.

Orient Bay it is not only a clothing optional place! It is a beach with non-stop action, all the great water sports and watersports equipment, and lots of food and refreshment choices as well. Whether you are into playing all day or catching some rays while sipping a Pina Colada, Orient Bay is worth a visit! Orient Bay is the only beach on St. Martin with a large number of beach bars and restaurants directly located on the beach.

More in the middle of the beach you will find the local hangouts with restaurants and live bands at times playing great music.

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.

Orient Bay is loaded with water sports facilities including parasailing, water skiing and snorkeling. Snorkeling equipment is also available at several places on the beach, just as many other amenities.
