The wind and water were rough but it was a great day to get sun. There as a lot of sea weed on the beach but we rented chairs and enjoyed the relaxing wind and sun and getting back to nature.

Orient beach is one of the prettiest beaches in the Caribean. Small to medium waves and clean white sand. There are hotels right on the beach but you can go there from anywhere on the island.

Much wider and also longer than most beaches on the island. Has the Kakao beach club/bar restaurant on the northern third (with lounge rental,etc.), Bikini Beach in the middle, and a more (unofficial) clothing optional area toward the south end. Many open public areas in...More

A very pale imitation of its former self with the added problem of huge mountains of seaweed that seem to be washed up every day. Only three of the former beach restaurants have rebuilt and recently reopened (Kontiki, Bikini and Kakao, which is in a...More
