This is a long beach, with the N end undeveloped, rough wind and waves, and lots of algae. In the middle, there are many chair rentals/bars/restaurants, but the ocean is not nice unless you kiteboard. The S end has a nude beach area, but with terrible ocean. We went to the extreme S end, which had clear calm water, and less wind. You must be careful of the spikey burr grass if barefoot.

This is a big step down from Grand Case and Anse Marcel beaches, unless nude is your thing.

Weather changes daily. If it’s windy, or seaweed, try it again! Service can be slow because of short staffed and people out with covid. Still beautiful and relaxing

Beautiful day !! beautiful beach!! Beautiful bodies!! Loved everything except for the Karen who rudely told me my music was too loud. What?!! How? I’m a hundred feet away from her and it’s coming from my phone. Jazz music too. The music from the bar is blasting way louder than mines. Some people really need to get a life. Besides that I’m so happy I had a chance to visit. First nude beach out the country. Definitely looking forward to visiting again!!

Long beach with a lot of eating options. Worth the hike to the far end of the beach where you will find old abandoned buildings and a lot of nude sunbathers (if that's your thing). Was too rough to do any water sports with only very advanced kite sailers, wildsurfers, foilers, jetskiers, and others out there.

Beautiful beach day. Lots of places to get beach chairs and umbrellas for the beach. Lot of cafes and bars for lunch on the beach. This is an Atlantic Ocean side beach. Bigger surf and waves than the Caribbean side. Shore is covered with seaweed from the ocean, and beach front facilities rake it frequently, but you expect it, not a problem. The day we were there it was extremely windy and the surf was up very high, so very few people were getting into the surf for bathing. The windsurfing was active and I watched the surfers enjoy the wild ride they had. Get there by car on French side. Not easy to find entrances without phone map app.

Very busy beach with wind surfers and kite surfers, which was fun to watch. Lots of competing beach chair rental places kept the prices down--we got 2 chairs and an umbrella for 15E which included access to wifi and a bathroom. Nice long beach for walking along. Access to parking was easy and free. Worth a stop if you have a week on the island!

Been coming to St M for over 15 years & this is the only beach we go to. The Orient Bay resort was hit hard during the hurricane, but has worked hard to regain some of the things that were lost ... the bar & restaurant. During our Nov visit we were happy to see both are back. We would LOVE to see the resort comeback as well, but everything takes time & hope.

We visited early December 2021, free beach in middle, to the left and right there are chairs and umbrellas, 10 euro per person. 20 euro burgers and the bathrooms are very nice. I am writing this review because I was talked into a massage by Chantal. She is French and very funny, unfortunately she gave me a bruise on my arm and it was the worse massage I have ever received and I get them monthly at home. Go with one of the African French women if you want a massage. I just don't want anybody else talked into a massage by Chantal.

Be careful if swimming into the evening. We decided to try to nude beach section, only to be attacked by these huge bugs that look like mosquito/flies. I ran back into the water and the buggers actually chased me. Our romantic swim ended with me running naked from attacker killer bugs.
If coming for the nude beach, try Pimel Island instead. This beach doesn’t offer much privacy. There were construction workers nearby which made things awkward.
Bikini Beach restaurant on the other side sells lovely strong drinks and their food is amazing!!
