This is a somewhat remote clothing optional beach. The last bit of road is pretty rough, but not that long. There are lounge and umbrella service available and beach bar with limited drinks and I don’t think any food. The water was clear and clean...More

This beach is still one of the nicest you will ever visit. Clear turquoise blue Caribbean water. Soft white sand that goes for miles. And beautiful views of the coastal mountains that line the coast. While the devastation from the hurricane can still be seen...More

Im not sure what it looked like pre-Irma but a few days ago we couldn't belive what it looked like. We ask 3 people if this was Oreint Beach. It was full of seaweed, black water and not blue at all. Very disappointing.

On our eighth trip to this beautiful beach, we were unprepared for actually seeing most of our favorite beach bars/restaurants wiped away by the hurricane. Fortunately, Bikini Beach is open and thriving; we spent a full day there with wonderful lunch and drinks. The seaweed...More

Bring your bathing suit or not. It doesn’t matter - everyone can wear or not wear what they want. It’s a beautiful inlet which still shows signs from the horrific storm and charming in its own way. Not a lot of people and a cute...More

Nice white sandy beach. Restaurants opening back up. There are several excursions available, jet skiing, waterboarding and others. It was quiet when we went. Snorkeled, but didn't see much life. There is a clothing optional section, so beware.
