First time we did not get off here- Have been many times before and it is a nice private Island but we just layed out at theat great Adult Only pool on-board.
We love Orient Beach. One of best in Carribean. Waves, clean ocean and beach, food, drinks, little shops, Nudist Resort people watching.
We don 't shop anymore. Have done many times in past and all the stuff is the same and overpriced at the local stores. We go to Lindbergh Bay beach which is a very short and inexp[ensive ($5-6) cab ride from the port. Very nice and next to a hotel which allows you to rent chairs and use their pool bar. Very relaxing.
