Orient Bay Beach, Orient Bay

4.1
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.

  • This left Beach being the most beautiful of the island, we were at the end of April 2018, according to references here, and unfortunately it is one of the most affected, there are no restaurants or facilities such as baths, only a small Bar, some deck chairs that you rent , is now separate nudist area, so if you go with children becomes complicated, to get from the route to the beach many grounds and large areas of standing water with smell to rotten throughout the area, there are no water sports went to other beaches in general this awful poor, water is beautiful as throughout the Caribbean, but full of algae, like dirty sand... not worth spending by taxi up there for awhile.

  • Nice beach. Please note its a nude beach (clothing optional) for those that don't know. Much of it however is gone due to the last Hurricane.
  • Half reg, half naked . Weather was amazing. Can't wait to see what it looks like after they rebuild .
  • Sandy sun bathing beach. Fairly crowded since the beach is also uses by resorts with beachfront property. Water was a bit turbulent and murky on the day I was there.
  • Irma definitely left her mark on Orient Beach, but the people were friendly and Jewdy and I had a great time there.
  • This beautiful beach still is just that: a beautiful beach. All shops, restaurants and bar have been totally demolished. It will take a long, long time to become the tourist attraction it was! Now, it is a sad plce to visit!
