Kids at Club Orient
      #1525006 - 07/29/13 07:47 PM (68.124.71.234)

My wife and I will make our first ever trip to Orient Beach next June, and are thinking of staying at Club Orient. Its website describes it as "a family friendly clothing optional beach resort." What does this mean in reality? How many guests actually bring minor children with them? Especially considering June is summer vacation for most US schools?

Thanks in advance for any insight!

The answer is 'not many'. The average demographic of those who stay at Club O is quite a bit older than those who have minor children.

Over December and January there were several children. I'd guess a 2 and 5 year old, as well as an 8 year old in the mini suite circle, two 17 year olds and a 12 year old in the chalets, and two others, 8- 10 in a beach front chalet.

But, considering the number of units at Club O, I'd still say my answer of "not many" is pretty close.

It is true ... not many kids (under 18). We took our daughters, a SIL and our 4 grandkids to Club O. They loved it and the guest loved them. That was in June.

It would be great to have more families visit but there aren't many. One friend has said that, at one time, there were more parents bringing their kids but then stopped because they became bored with just the beach to keep them busy.

We made due. Taught the kids to snorkel and they collected shells, did some exploring ... we kept them busy enough. We even put on some clothes and went into Merigot and Phillipsburg. They had fun there too.

We usually go in August, and have seen what we thought were locals, bring their children to the Club O beach. We usually stay on the end near the watersports bldg, and have seen several different families with younger children, some school age. Not being familiar with the local school schedule, I guess we see more local children due to them not being in school.

When we were there in late June there were less than 6 the whole time. I guess that would be in the category as 'not many'. Friends of ours that come every year decided to not come this year because they wanted to know how their young daughter would do on the beach clothed or not. If I were young I would want to be on the north side of the beach because of the activity. At those ages clothed or not doesn't mean as much.

I would agree--especially on the weekend--when one sees a family with children on the beach at Club O, it is more likely to be a local family than someone staying at Club O.

That raises a interesting question, local customs do not frown on the nudity but allow natives to in fact partake? Was curious as on other Caribbean islands that is not the case i.e. St. John USVI.
