The great thing about orient beach at Club Orient is that no one really cares what you look like. Pubic hair styles vary....

I don't think we have ever been to another nude beach or nude resort that is so accepting. No pressure at all...about ANYTHING. Just be yourself and enjoy this beautiful paradise.

While I wasn't thrilled with his post either, technically he is at least partially correct. The accepted norm these days for nudism is at Club O and not the entire length of Orient. Thus the 8:30 gendarme walks. Times change and so does the island, whether we like it or not! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/handshake.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/handshake.gif" alt="" />



-- and the reason I thanked Jaybird. I still maintain Scubamans opinion

"but I don't want to get that visual on the other part of Orient where I go to"

was not required nor did it add any info to this topic.

My question is valid as to why anyone would visit a beach that at specific times of the morning you might see a nude walker when you are intolerant of the body, and there are plenty of other beaches on the island.


So why should a small percentage of the people make a larger percentage uncomfortable? <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/duh.gif" alt="" /> Nudity has it's place but not on the whole stretch of Orient Beach. Read the signs.

Thank you for trying to lighten the mood!
As others have mentioned hair styles range from natural to none-whatever makes you happy!

Scubaman's opinion surely wouldn't fly with respect to public bathroom usage in the US!

SIGNS? You ever run a stop sign? You ever broken the speed limit? If you have what would you be,accepting some signs and not others?

This is an old thread so I wondering if there is a newer one I missed on this topic. We are planning on going to Orient tomorrow and if there is a place that a person can eat at and get their chairs free if they eat? If not, where do people recommend sitting and eating this year? Thanks.

Orange Fever has great food. We spent half our vacation eating lunch there. Although, we rented chairs at Club O. Orange Fever does have a chair rental special though, but I can't recall what it was. You definitely have to have lunch there.

Also, I highly recommend the rotisserie chicken at Yellow Sub. You have to order a day ahead. It's totally worth it. Just pick it up at the end of day for a great meal back at your place. Make sure to order the potatoes too. They get basted by the chicken drippings for a decadent savory treat.

We just returned from a stay at La Playa. Chairs are $10. Not sure if eating there lowers that. But I can say the chairs, service, drinks, and food are great.

Thanks. We may have to experiment and see what fits our fancy.
Chairs for $10 for one or two or ?
I'm not sure if we're Club O ready but who knows. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/duel.gif" alt="" />

The Beach at Club O is clothing optional by law. However, most people are naked. If you are wearing anything, I think you will stick out like a sore thumb.

Very surprised that no one has mentioned the beach at Pedro's. our favorite. $15.00 for 2 chairs and 2 rum punches. Also free use of the washroom. Many people go natural there as well. Yes, the beach vendors do come around. But, just a no thank you works. They are not aggressive at all.

We LOVE Le String. No place really gives FREE chairs...they are usually built into the price of the food. Le String chargers 20 dollars for 2 chairs and umbrellas...and 2 drinks, including frozen specialty drinks, are included in the price....PLUS...the food there is DELICIOUS!! We found a good meal there, plus the price of lunch is cheaper than the places for lunch and free chairs!!!!!! my two cents.

We ending up going to Pedro's. There were no beach vendors as there was a sign posted saying no vendors allowed so we never got bothered there but I don't know if that is the reason they were not on this side.
I kind of stuck out like a sore thumb but some people did have their suits on. No law says you have to be naked it just says you can be naked.

<img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/breakingnews.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/breakingnews.gif" alt="" /> Scotty arrested for wearing swimsuit on beach. Sentenced to 30 days of watching old people run around naked.

That's funny on the arrest Scotty!!!<img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Clapping.gif" alt="" /> My wife wasn't beach ready either when we first started visiting SXM, but now we stay at the Club, and she even does the early morning beach walk, sans top <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Joy.gif" alt="" />

No, that's not correct at all. Many people use the Club O beach and wear some clothing, full bathing suit, bathing suit bottom, pareo. It doesn't matter. No one cares, and regardless of what you wear, you will not stick out like a sore thumb by what you are wearing. If you do weird stuff or gawk openly, that's a different thing. Wear what you like on Club O beach. All are welcome.

Carol, I'm joking with my comments.

Carol, we didn't see too many people wearing clothes yesterday. No problem here. People can do what they want to.
I had sunglasses on so they couldn't tell if I was gawking or not. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" />
As for weird stuff, I always do weird stuff. I guess it's just what you consider weird. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/noevil.gif" alt="" />
