Orient Bay Village

Located in the northeastern part of the island of St. Martin, the village of Orient Bay is a real “must-do” of the Caribbean. Nicknamed the “Saint-Tropez of the Caribbean”, the beach of Orient Bay is one of the largest on the island and also one of the busiest. In Orient Bay, the Atlantic Ocean expresses its true nature with trade winds stronger than anywhere else on the island. No wonder this is heaven for boardsports fans. The beach offers a mile of white sand, turquoise water, and plenty of facilities for tourists. The village has multiple beach restaurants, hotels, and shops. You’ll also find a supermarket, a bakery, a hair salon, and all those other day-to-day amenities.

On Orient Bay, the western end of the beach is reserved for nudists. If you enjoy all-over tanning and swimming in your birthday suit, then you’ll be in heaven.
