Orient Beach, home of the Club Orient naturist resort has something for everyone. The northern end starts off mostly clothed and people wear less and less until they reach the southern end where clothing is optional throughout the resort: beach (of course), boutique (why not), and restaurant (yikes!). Don't let the, shall we say casual, atmosphere fool you as there are some very good restaurants on the beach. Many of the major restaurants at the northern end of the beach have boutiques, and much more. There are many tee-shirt, bathing suit, and pareo stands at the southern end. Needless to say, watersports are plentiful. At sunset, the action moves off the beach to Orient Village where the open area becomes a bocce ball court and the surrounding restaurants are the stands. Frequently, there is music in the park or in one of the restaurants. There are several hotels amd many lovely villas.
Please note that a reconstruction project has put all buildings between Pedro's and Kontiki in the dump. In January 2016 they are still being being replaced with all due Caribbean speed, which is to say, "Soon come, Mon."
Just south of Orient Beach is L'Embouchure Bay or Galion Beach, voted best place to take your kids on the island. A bit further is Oyster Pond, a great harbor, with a marina and several restaurants.
