We go to St. Maarten every year for two weeks at a time. This is where we hang out each day. Best chairs, drinks, lunch, owners, bar staff, hands down. Best spot on the beach!

I have friends who live in Grand Case, and when they go to the beach, they always have lunch at Le String. I understand why. This place has good food and drinks at reasonable prices, and it's a fun place to hang out.

This was a daystop off a cruiseship last May, where a bunch of us rented a much cheaper taxi to the French side of island. Food was beachshack comfortable,graced with a English "D" flying on a flagpole. Turns out the manager or owner once lived in Michigan, and must still be a Detroit Tiger baseball fan, which uses the D.

Amazing little find! Max takes great care of your the entire time you're seated at Le String. The bartenders are the best on Orient. You cannot beat the price for the chairs, and a full size drink of your choice. Absolutely worth hiking down the beach for! Thank you, Le String!

Our tour guide brought us here to Orient Bay, where my step daughters and husband were going to go jet skiing. I didn't want to do that, so for eight bucks at Le String, got a chair, towel, a drink (with or without alcohol) and access to the restrooms and showers. It was a great deal and I enjoyed sitting...

We did Orient beach 3 times and spent each time here. Max, the chair guy, Delphine the bartender and the owners Lionel and Severine went out of there way to accommodate us. $8 for a chair, umbrella, and a FULL size frozen drink is a great buy.

While strolling Orient Bay for a deal on chaises and drinks we stopped by Le String. Chaises and a free drink. I'm sold. The staff here is really awesome. Max was so friendly and kept the drinks and shots coming. We stayed 8 hours one day and a few hours later in the week. When we came back a couple... More

We have been hanging out at this little gem in Orient Bay for the past couple years, and each trip it gets better. The family and staff who work there are so much fun. Everyone, including the "tourists" who come there (not too many boat people come here), are always so friendly. Today, we had the chicken kebab, and it... More
