We were at Orient beach 25 years ago and there was a lot of nudity is it still prevalent? Where in the French side can more modest folks go? If you stay off the Club Orient clothing optional side of the beach, you will encounter no nudity on Orient. However, the tiniest thongs might be the only textiles worn by some. Topless may be found on any beach on the French side. And many on the Dutch side also although not so many. Been on the beach many days the last 2 years and you will def see topless all over orient beach, full nudity on the club orient side. Try Friar's Bay Beach?
No re-opening date has been posted due to lack of insurance claims and payment. See the official St. Martin Tourist Office site French side for more details.

The driest weather usually occurs between December and April, and as such this is the busiest time for tourism on the island. Despite this, there are no issues moving between the two sides. The area immediately surrounding the airport is quite built up, and in general the Dutch side of the island is more crowded and touristy. Orient Bay is one of the most well known beaches on the island, and, therefore, also one of the busiest.
We have previously visited Orient Beach for the day while on a cruise. We stayed mostly on the South side of Pedros, near the Club Orient yellow beach chairs. We would like to come back for a week without the cruise line! Is nude sunbathing or bathing allowed on the beach in front of the Cap Caraibe? What about the other areas between the setup chairs. Between the hotel cabanas. I disagree with you however in the broad statement that a man parading in front of a child is harmful.
