The broad descriptor “colorful” is often used in reference to Orient Bay, though generally for more risque reasons than those pictured…

It’s the chance to go au naturel (or gawk at those opting to do so) that draws most people to St. Martin’s most popular beach, but as I was somewhat surprised to find when I arrived here back in March, watersports options abound here as much as anything else.
