When my wife and I go to St. Martin I am sure we will stop by Club Orient on orient beach. We know that no place on the island is totally safe. We will have our own personal beach chairs, umbrella, cooler. We would never leave anything of value out of our sight. If we wanted to walk the beach, would our personal chairs, umbrella, cooler, towels, empty beach bag be safe if we walked the beach for about an hour or so?
