My wife and I are not prudes, and she has gone topless on several vacations when it is allowed, but has reservations about going totally nude on the beach. One of our best couple friends loves St. Maarten and go to the nude beach at Orient Beach. I don't think they'd steer us wrong when they say you can be clothed, even in nude areas? Just making sure! ;) My wife may try it, but I don't want her to feel pressured! I'm fine with it myself! Are there other beaches in St. Maarten where it is optional, or are they all clothing optional?
