We are making our first trip back to SXM post Irma on May 1 2018. I have heard various reports about the nude section of the beach so I'm hoping there may be info on the beach as of late. We are hoping that the nude section and Perch Lite are still primarily nude and that the clothed people aren't taking over. Not that there is anything wrong with the clothed folks, but we have made many friends at the nude beach and are hoping it is still primarily nude. Anyone been lately?
We have been in St Martin for the last 4 weeks and spent may days at Club O. The beach at Club O is mostly occupied by nudists although some cruise boat people come, rent chairs and remain clothed. I haven't seen any problems. The beach has the same feel and vibe as before. Club O also has the most chairs to rent on Orient Beach and the Perch bar helps bring in the patrons.
Friends of ours ate at Chez Leandra's last week. We haven't ventured off of Club O's property to check it out but I believe that she may be the only other place to eat. There hasn't been any new construction started of any of the other beach restaurants yet.
We are on Sxm now. Perch lite and Chez Leandra are the only places for food on Orient Beach. We have eaten at Chez Leandra least 3 times a week for the past 4 weeks. Food is great as usual. Must say the weather has improved this week. The wind is calmer.
Wife and I decided to return this July and spend our money here at our beloved Caribbean paradise. We weighed and looked at other destinations for this year while the island heals from hurricane...but why not help the cause by spending money and reinvest here where it is needed and wanted. Besides there is no comparable to Club O/Orient beach and all the awesome people that make this “one of a kind place on earth”! Yes it will be scarred and set back 😢 however there are still many restaurants reopened all over the island along with beaches and “what are we going to do today” places. Undoubtably Club O will take the longest to reopen, but the nude beach at their property even in its bare bones shape is still the place we want to be at.
We are going to stay in Orient Beach area and frequent Club O beach and hope that spending our vacation monies will help the where it is appreciated most. Hoping many others will feel the same and do the same!
thatisi, you have the perfect attitude to have a great time, we were there in January thinking the same thing and had the best time ever, genuinely felt we were helping and were thanked for coming regularly. You will have a great time. Many things will be even better by July.
