Orient Bay

Orient Bay

Situated on the French side of the island (East side) Orient Bay is home to one of the finest beaches on the Carribbean, if not the world, two miles of white sand – what more could you ask for? Orient Beach is the most busiest and liveliest beach on the Island. The Bay is also home to a nude beach – so if you’re easily offended (or easily pleased) this may or may not be the right place for you. Club Orient is the Islands only naturist resort at the southern part of the beach.

The bay has been recognised as a marine reserve. Snorkeling here is out of this world (literally). With several tiny islands near to the coast (such as Green Kay, Little Key and Pinel Islet) there’s further opportunities for would be snorkeling.

As for a St Maarten all inclusive experience, you may be disappointed in Orient Bay. Most hotels will be in the 3 star region, with breakfast being the only meal served. Our recommendation for a hotel (non all inclusive) would be the Alamanda. On the plus side there are some wonderful restaurants very close the hotel.

Above all not exactly the All Inclusive experience more a self serve experience. Still with such a picturesque beach you may not need anything else.
