Orient Beach in St. Martin is one of my favorite beaches in the world. I love it! Here is an article that sums it up nicely;

Orient Beach is St. Martin's flagship beach and is often refered to as the "French Riviera of the Caribbean". This expansive one mile beach is home to numerous beach bar/restaurants, who offer various menus, from formal French to pizzas, burgers and local fare. No matter what the cuisine, its party time all the way, from one end of the beach to the other. Bikini Beach, Coco Beach, Kakao Beach, Wakiki Beach and Kontiki Beach are the most established beach restaurants with great food, great service and even greater ambiance.
For those who can remember "skinny dippin", this is your chance to try it again! On the southern end of Orient Beach you'll find Club Orient, the most famous nudist resort in the Caribbean. Here you're invited to rid yourself of those tell-tale tan lines. You can swim and sunbathe unencumbered; it is "clothing optional". Remember to wear plenty of sunscreen.
Great frozen drinks, lounge chairs and umbrellas are available everywhere along the beach. Visit also Baywatch with hosts Andy and Cheryl for a superb American Breakfast.

Default In St. Thomas

If you like beaches and snorkeling, we like going to Trunk Bay on St. John's.
Carnival used to have a shore excursion there, you take a 45 minute ferry from St. Thomas to St. John's they about a 15 minute bus ride to Trunk bay. One of the best beaches we have ever seen. Hope you have a great cruise. Clay

There is still a small gay nude beach in St Maartin. It's Cupecoy beach. The beach is divided into 3 parts (although the tides shift constantly so it might be just one, ther may be up to 4). The middle section is the part with the most gay guys. There are caves where some guys have sex, but if you avoid those, it can be fun. Please note that nudity is NOT required. You will not feel uncomfortable if you stay in your shorts. My partner and I go for 7 to 10 days every year and spend all our time at Cupecoy.
Hope this helps. If you need more info, email or post again.
