There is a new beach in St. Maarten! A rocky cove, formerly known as Cay Bay has been rechristened to the somewhat catchier name 'Indigo Bay'.

Not everyone will be happy that we list this beach here, because Happy Bay is still considered THE insider's beach on St. Martin.

Only two miles off St. Martin's eastern coast lays the uninhabited island of Tintamarre. The flat and brush covered 80 acre islet features a gorgeous beach, with a calm anchorage for the day-charter boats which frequently visit for a few hours. On the southern coast, there are several sandy coves with complete privacy.

Here you're invited to rid yourself of those tell-tale tan lines. You can swim and sunbathe unencumbered in your birthday suit. On the southern end of Orient Beach you'll find the clothing optional beach of the presently closed Club Orient Nudist Resort.

St Maarten - St Martin has a fairly relaxed attitude towards beach nudity. The island is the leading Caribbean destination for nudists, with  Orient Beach an officialy sanctioned clothing optional beach.
