I'd been to St Martin a few times, but this was my first time at Orient Beach. I'd heard it is one of the most beautiful beaches. Yes, it is pretty, white sand, clear water. But, way too busy, chairs side by side. We spent our time at LaPlaya Beach. Restaurant and bar, bathroom and changing facilities. Chairs with umbrellas for rent, fair prices.
My opinion is that this beach is for those wanting to see and be seen. Less dressed was the norm, even on the not nude side! My preference is for a less busy beach, which we found on the other islands on our cruise. I know everyone seems to love this beach, but I've been to better!
