Just returned from staying a week on the Dutch side. Third trip and always go to Orient Bay Beach. Stunning water, cool breezes, and fantastic food within steps.

Would recomend Bikini Beach for chairs, parking, food, drink, and service.

The nudity comments are a bit over done. The ones that elect for the out of suit experience are low-key and just relaxing. Most of the nudity is on the south end.

When visiting the island for a day or a week, don't miss this spot if you love beautiful water, excellent food, and people watching.

Bikini beach a great day trip for people who aren't staying at Orient Baie. Rent a chair,, 20US and enjoy. Water is clear, waves are fun. Bars at the beach provide chair service. Washrooms and wifi. There are people selling massages, hats and whatever else but they are polite and not a nuisance.best beach on the island for access and amenities.

Wide open ocean with little pretty montains with beautiful palm trees and tropical flowers everywhere... Naked or with your bathing suits on,drinking a cold beer or a fancy daiquiri strawberry,swimming ,kite surfing or just walking along the gorgeous turquoise water ... The sand so soft and so light,everywhere happy people feeling the warm sun and soft breeze...Can we ever get tired of staring at so much beauty?

This is a nice warm beach with nice activities. Part of the beach is all nude but the rest of it has some nudity but no big deal to wear clothes. My only concern is the water sports folks are too close to swimmers in the water and the government should regulate that before someone gets hurt. Just stay 100 feet away from the sports huts where the jet skis come out and you'll be fine. This beach is worth going to.

This was just a fabulous way to spend the day. For those of you that come by cruise ship, head over to the information desk and around to the taxi stand. The island guides will help you find the right beach and set you on your way with a friendly taxi ride. The more people in the taxi the cheaper the ride (such as 4 people $8 each) and the taxi driver even made arrangements to come back at a designated time to pick us up. She brought us to Orient Beach, Bikini beach club and the cost was $20 for two chairs and umbrella use of bathrooms and showers. The beach was not crowded and there was beach service from the bar at the same cost as going up to the bar. People do sell items on the beach but you can kindly decline with no trouble. Up and down the beach you have choice clubs with chairs, umbrellas and restaurant/bar. The beach has soft white sand, Caribbean blue water, relaxing environment and nice people. Just the place to be on vacation. Enjoy!! We did!
