A small group of us (5 couples and 2 single girls) go to St Martin during the first 2 weeks of December every year for the past 4. We stay on Orient Bay at the Mont Vernon Hotel and go to the nude beach there on the bay. I consider it to be the best nude beach on the Island. Our hosts R long time residents of the Island and we get to enjoy the night life not generally known to other visitors. We stay on the French side but party on the Dutch side.
