Highly recommended to visit this beach. It is wide, sandy , many bars on the beach and if you go further you will find some private spots and not very crowded. Plenty of parking spots.

This is a mile long beach on the French side of the island with clear water and plenty of places to rent lounge chairs and umbrellas - plenty of small shops to buy local goods at; good restaurants. No water shoes needed here as there is a mostly sandy bottom. Note: a section of the beach is a Nude Beach... More

We got to Orient Beach early and rented chairs in front of Kakao Bar and Restaurant. Two chairs and one umbrella were $25 cash for the day. The sand was nice, the water had quite a bit of sea grass the day we were there. The people watching is very interesting.

Amazing and beautiful beach. Sand is soft and beach is great for long walks and lots of beach activities - parasailing, jet skis, etc. Even with that you can still chill and just enjoy the sun and the ocean. Since this is on the French side of the island, it feels a bit more international, with French spoken as the... More
