Opulent Caribbean vacations in Orient Bay

Swish duplexes and whitewashed villas, multi-bedroom homes and opulent Orient Bay vacation rentals crowd the soft sands. A hop and a skip will have you paddling in the Caribbean Sea in the morning, while evenings can be spent clinking cocktails next to the pool as the sun sets over the hills. Orient Beach is the main draw. It's likely to be right on the doorstep, awash with windsurf rentals and the flapping sails of yacht charters, palm-shaded sunbathing spots and tanning bodies. Throw in glitzy Saint Martin casinos and designer shopping, and it's easy to see why this one lures so many.

Splash into Orient Bay

Orient Bay's glowing white-sand beaches and lines of swaying palm trees make it the perfect spot to kick back and enjoy a medley of classic Caribbean rest and relaxation. The trade winds add to the mix, blowing in to offer windsurfing, surfing swells, and boating breezes that are hard to ignore if you love getting out on the water. And talking of water, there are other draws beneath. You can SCUBA to coral gardens and see sea sponges, or just don the snorkel for a glimpse of multi-colored fish.

Find Lady Luck in Orient Bay

A range of European-style casinos and gaming halls have sprung up on the northern side of Saint Martin. Here, you can slap the chips down and try your luck in the huge Princess Casino, or pull the one-armed bandits at the Tropicana Casino. Others will prefer the historical side of the isle away from the beaches. Head to the nearby Butterfly Farm to see multi-colored fliers in waxy botanical beds. Or, go to the Hope Estate Archeological Site, where the haunting ruins of ancient Arawak structures await.

Sun for the snowbirds in Orient Bay

The hurricanes leave off in November, and the driest, mildest, pleasantly balmy days of the main season kick in. It's certainly the top time to come.

Orient Bay to Orient Beach

It's common for folk to conflate Orient Bay and Orient Beach. The first is the name of the town on the east shores of Saint Martin.

It's a quintessential medley of coral-colored sands and palm-shaded beachfront that awaits there, with reefs in the shoals out at sea, and turquoise waters that are divine for swimming in.
