Breathtaking view and water, although when we were there it seemed a bit rough yet warm and refreshing at the same time. Many different beach bars to chose from, which can be overwhelming. We chose the 'original' Bikini Beach' and were not disappointed.

Incredible sand, blue waters... A public beach, we had been warned about being bothered by vendors for everything from jewelry, to dresses to rental chairs. The vendors are there. They approach as soon as you arrive, but are very nice when you tell them no and do not bother you. The man for the chairs was very professional looking. We told him we did not need chairs, and asked if there were any rules or requirements - he said, "No. This is a public beach. Enjoy what you like, but you do not have to buy anything." He then proceeded to point out where everything was located (restrooms, restaurant, drinks) and wished us a good time. We are all fair skinned and do not spend too much time at any beach. This was very nice and low key.

Liked the open feeling of being on the nude beach
Didn't like the kids on the beach nude with their parents....awkward!

Very nice beach! They will bring you drinks to your beach chairs.

Part of the beach is topless but, not many people go topless. The other part of the beach is completely nude & everyone is nude.

Visited Orient Beach as part of a circumnavigation of Sint Maarten / Saint Martin by car. It was a weekday afternoon, so the parking lot wasn't full, but there was still lots of activity on the beach. Bouncy floating rafts, parasailing, paddle ball, bars and restaurants, seadoo rentals, etc. The beach is several kms long and easily accommodates families, young adults and older naturalists depending on your persoanl preferences.
