This beach is incredibly beautiful with lots and lots of amenities (shopping, bars, restaurants, sports). However, it gets very crowded on cruise ship days. On those days, visit the less crowded beaches like Happy Beach, LeGalion or Friar's Bay - all within a 10-15 drive.

Lots of stalls for clothes etc, lots of food choices and plenty parking. You can go para-sailing, jet-skiing, a quick trip on a catamaran. We ate lunch at the Aloha and the food was amazing! Sea is a little rougher on the french side here at this beach. At the very end is the clothes optional beach no cameras allowed.

Orient bay is a lovely place to stay on St. Martin. There are plenty of activities, shops, restaurants, bars, all within a short walk of each other. If you like a calm, friendly atmosphere where you can mix with the locals this is the place to stay.

Orient Beach is still quite nice in June. The trade winds blow, keeping it more comfortable than you might imagine, especially on the beach. Overall, it's less crowded than high season, and less expensive to fly there and to stay there.
