I have read on a few websites other beaches mentioned as being OK for topless but I would rather check with the experts here :. All beaches on St. Martin French are topless, Orient Beach is the only official nude beach. Visitors sometimes like to go nude on other beaches that are less populated such as Happy Bay Beach. On Sint Maarten Dutch nudity is common on parts of Cupecoy Beach althought not officially allowed it is tolerated. As this area developes the status of this beach may again change, only time will tell. You may see some topless on other Dutch side beaches, less so on the beaches occupied by large hotels but not totally unheard of even on these. All the beaches on the French side are topless and I think most on the dutch side,too. And even that is only in a designated area.
Difference Between St. Martin & St. Maarten
St Martin / St Maarten
Sint Maarten - Saint Martin is famous for its nude beaches. Many visitors tried it here for the first time and never went back to a textile beach to enjoy the sun and surf. If you consider visiting Orient Beach, the island's most famous beach, read up on what to do and not to do on a 'clothing optional' beach. Nudists enjoying the beach on Tintamarre Island off the coast of Orient Beach. The trouble starts with the terminology: a beach that is designated to be enjoyed unencumbered by any textiles is labeled 'clothing optional' on the American side of the Atlantic Ocean.
Where is St. Martin & St. Maarten
Martin is an island in the Caribbean. It is divided into two parts. The French side, St. Martin , and the Dutch side, Sint Maarten. If you have ever traveled to the island, most likely it was on a Cruise Ship. It is a popular stop for many cruise lines that sail in the Caribbean. For me, this is the preferred way to enjoy the island. And I for one prefer the French side. We have been going there for years now.
