This public beach is at the far end of Orient Bay, near the private residential area. There is a restaurant which will serve you wonderful drinks and delicious food where you lounge on the sand by the shore. You may also dine on the restaurant's lovely deck. The beach lounges rent for the day and the area is manned by... More

Technically part of Orient Beach on the very end, but MUCH less crowded. The beach itself is very nice and the water is beautiful and clear. Chairs and umbrellas are free if you purchase a meal in the restaurant, which we planned to do any way, so it was a no brainer. If you want, a short walk will bring... More

We found this place by accident after passing up the main entrance to Orient Beach. Glad we did because we walked the entire length of Orient Beach and liked this spot best. Very nice cushioned comfortable lounge chairs are complimentary for customers. Stephan will take very good care of you with food, drinks and helpful advice. In the restaurant Alyzee... More

You can experience Orient Beach from here (it is just a short walk) but the beach in front of Palm Beach is less busy and more relaxing. Chairs and umbrellas are free if you purchase a meal. The food is quite good, especially their tapas. Beer prices are reasonable. This is a great place to hangout and spend the day... More

Walk on the beach and parts look like crowded Saint Tropez with rowdy american cruise tourists. And then...... Palm Beach.... Great food, tasty, fantastic cocktails and a very friendly service by the team Coco and his wife have put together. The team is constant (been there many times), and welcomes us as long lost friends. Love the mellow jazzy music... More

We really enjoyed our long lunch here. The planters punch was exceptional, as was the food. We had the salmon tartare and the shrimp Caesar salad in the dining area and enjoyed a second cocktail on the couch looking at the beach. It's on a calmer part of the beach, but on the edge of all the action. The place... More

This is a very nice location and great bar. The food was pretty good, but the overall experience was great. Up the beach is much more congested, where Palm Beach offers a much better experience. The staff was great, which added to the overall experience.

We decided to escape the crowd to a little less hectic spot toward the northern end of the Orient Bay crowds. We had some tapas and a creme brûlée. Both were just scrumptious. I would definitely go back to this location.
