We visited Orient Beach just last week, it was one of our ports of call during our cruise. We docked in Philipsburg and took a cab over to Bikini Beach, rented two chairs $12 and an umbrella $3 and enjoyed the turquoise water and white sandy beach. The hotel is only a minute walk from the Orient Beach, a very nice beach. We brought a lot of sand back from the beach everyday and the cleaning staff did a great job getting rid of it. Cap Caraibes is a 35 room hotel with independent suites faces Orient Beach. Garden View rooms open to the pool area. Orient Beach is very easy to find. There appear to be several entries.
For enjoying your Orient Beach vacation, the nightlife offered along the beach with the unique beach bars and dancing in the sand will be at the top of the list. The famous Orient Beach, with its mile and a half of white sand, has been voted best beach in the Caribbean. The bars and restaurants that are scattered along the beach provide a variety of food and drinks.
Orient Beach hotels are known for their comfortable lodging and great services and offer accommodations for visitors of every kind. Some would even say that with all Orient Beach has to offer it is the perfect vacation spot. The beach features a variety of exciting watersports, great restaurants, bars and nightlife, and don’t forget the duty free St Martin shopping . Orient Beach offers a large choice for fun, relaxation and entertainment on the beach. Situated in the small complex of “Tap Five” at the end of the main road to the beach, Pearl of Orient Bay has access to a communal swimming pool, which is shared with L’Hoste Hotel.
No discussion of St Martin island can start without first acknowledging the strange fact that the entire island is split in two. They have different names for each side of the island, St. We did not follow the coast and went through the island. The stunning views of the clear blue water of Simpson Bay lagoon and the island itself from every room in the villa are unparalleled. Shangri-La is a secluded and peaceful getaway.
You can eat in restaurants totally naked! Because you’re in a tourist facility, there’s no shortage of food, shopping, water sports, and tons of things you don’t need but may want anyway. Restaurants, beach bars, a grocery store, and a French bakery. Within a few minutes walk you’ll also find a beauty salon and hairdresser, and water sports activities.
The hotel is just north of Orient Beach, a brisk 6-minute downhill walk (I timed it), or can drive & park. We stayed in a 2-bedroom villa which sleeps 4 only. Activities on the Orient Beach include windsurfing, jet-ski, para-gliding, snorkeling, horseback riding, massage, and many bars and restaurants including KAKAO , KONTIKI, and many more. All three bedrooms have a double bed and one has an additional single bed. Tropez of the Caribbean, Orient Beach lies at the end of a 109-m (100-yd) path leading from the resort to the beach’s north end. The beach features open-air restaurants, a nude-sunbathing section on the south end, and vendors offering water sports.
