What part of Orient beach do you like best? Last cruise we stayed more towards Kakao Beach, has anyone done Bikini Beach?

We didn't like Orient beach. It wasn't bad but it wasn't what we wanted.

It's a nude optional beach, good waves (so no snorkling) and the food was bad and the waitress (yes one for all on the excursion was very very slow and rude).

Not again, ever.

We were on Bikini Beach 7/11 (me, DH, DD 15 and DS 10) and loved it. There was a restaurant with clean bathrooms, chaning rooms and showers. An area with lockers. Chair and umbrella rentals. Water trampoline that wasn't too springy but I loved laying on it..like a big float. Boogie board, skim board rentals. Banana boat, Parasailing and Waverunners. Not to mention it was beautiful and not super crowded. We saw very few "natural" people. When my Dh was walking toward the one end he saw a bit more.

Bottom line: I would highly recommend this beach for a family.

We went to Orient Beach on our first trip, can't wait to go back this August, last time we went to the crappy beach near the ship. It is one of the most beautiful beaches we have gone to, large, clean beach. Saw a couple of topless women but that was it. Rented waverunners and had a blast. Not sure what park we were at, taxi driver saw we had kids so said he would take us further down, whatever that meant.
