Orient Bay, Saint Martin
|Overseas collectivity||Saint Martin|
Until 1985 the area was undeveloped. The island suffered damage caused by Hurricane Luis in 1995, which was quickly repaired. The island also suffered considerable damage in 2017 by Hurricane Irma, which is slowing being repaired.
The beach at Orient Bay has become the most popular beach on the island. A section of the beach at the south end is frequented by naturists.
