Beach Nature / Park
Clothing remains optional at Orient Bay Beach, a lengthy stretch of powdery sand protected from the harsh Atlantic by a long reef. Located on the island's eastern coastline, the beach provides plenty of space for parasailing, windsurfing, and partying the night away. Not everyone bares it all here, but a nearby nudist resort gives the beach a naturist bent. While access to the sand and surf is free, there's a small charge for renting beach chairs and umbrellas.

  • Went as an option from a cruise. My suggestion is just grab a towel and use the beach in town its clean, convenient, free and calm.  more »

  • The best beach ever! Was there in early April while on our Honeymoon. The water was perfect temperature. The beach had plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas. There is also a nice well stocked beach bar too. It was my first visit to a nude beach. Now I understand why people go to them, it's just feels right.👍.
  • A great beach. One side is cloth optional. The water is cool, clear and clean. Safe to swim. Crowded at times. Beautiful white sandy beach. There are places to buy drinks and snacks. You can catch a taxi from there back to downtown.
  • This island was witness to the change of a young mans life. Maybe it was the close encounter with a 747 on a beach where some of the most beautiful women take their cloths off to tan. Maybe it was their pride in how the islanders, locals, treated tourists. I was 14 when I went. Still go. I will continue to go.
  • It's a beautiful white sandy beach, the water has the perfect temperature and color. Best nudist beach in the island. Has a cloth optional section.
  • TRASH BEACH!!!! 1. Random naked old ladies walk by 2. Tons of seaweed everywhere 3. Super over crowded 4. Super Windy 5. Sand is super rocky 6. Tons of vendors bugging you every 2 seconds 7. Super expensive chairs and restaurants 8. Its just trash in general, go to any other beach ( Mullet Bay wink wink) DO NOT GO TO ORIENT(TRASH) BAY BEACH
