      #1740597 - 08/10/17 04:29 PM (71.68.212.89)

To get my wife comfortable to go co we took a trip to Pinel Island. Honey I said let's go to the other side no one will know us. We being from RI were quite sure we will not know anyone. So we are where both co and along comes a couple. After a hello. Hey were are you two from? You guess it Newport, R.I. That,s my story can you top that?

Can't top it but would like to tell of our first at Orient. We were staying at LeGalion before it was destroyed by hurricane. Saw many people walk toward a "cow=path" at the far end of beach so we thought we'd follow. It open-end up to a fantastic view of St Barts.

"Wow! This is great", said hubby. The man who had passed us on the trail remarked that it truly was and asked if we'd be joining him. I turned to see a totally naked man next to me. Further down the beach was a spotting of people (no crowd). We'd discovered the nude beach without looking for it.

Alas lots of building now in the area. Back then not even Club O was there. Just pristine beach water and naturalists.

The very first time we went to Club Orient for the day (circa 1987), I had to use the ladies room. I was really freaked out because I couldn't figure out which one was which, as there was no sign!

Ok ... so about heading down in Oct for our 3rd trip and looking for new places Several folks on the thread mention LaGalion but sort of in the past. Are there paths there now from Orient and if so, is it worth the walk or visit? Looks like we could drive there past the Butterly Farm.

We drove past the Butterfly Farm last year. The road rutted road appeared to dead end, but we were still approached by two young ladies who tried to set us up with a time share sales appointment.

Years ago we took the small catamaran ride out to Green Key for the day. They dropped us off and would pick us up a few hours later. We brought a cooler with subs and beer and put a little sheet out on the little beach to lay on. When we started to eat our subs, we heard this noise behind us. It was like clap clap clap. When we turned around, there were so many crabs climbing down our way drawn by the smell of the food!!!! OMG, it was crazy!!!, We threw a part of a sub so far to the end of the beach area to draw them over, and quickly ate our food. That was 20+ years ago!

Yes, you can walk there from Club O. There is a trail behind the watersports building. It goes through the bush and through an opening in the fence. Once through the fence it is very easy to see where to go and it is an easy walk.

Someone said that the area past the fence is still Club O property and that it is technically CO. But I don't know that for sure. I do know that La Galion is not CO so you will want to be dressed once in site of that area as a courtesy to the people at La Galion

You can walk through the rock wall behind Papagayo and there are some nice scenic walking paths that head towards Le Galion. I'm thinking you can get there, as the couple of clothed people seemed to be coming from that direction, and there was some sort of extreme exercise equipment near the parking lot that someone was using. P/S the beach looked nice, and extremely calm waters.

Make sure to wear water shoes or something to protect your feet. It's very rocky. And bring bug repellent.
