Topless Sunbathing


My wife and I visiting the Pearl next week. I searched on the forums regarding this topic and it appears nothing has been mentioned recently. I know it varies by how many Europeans are visiting etc. so I figured I would see how common topless sunbathing has been recently. My wife enjoys sunbathing in thong bikinis & topless to get a nice tan. At the same time, she doesn't enjoy offending anyone and will avoid doing this if necessary.

Thanks in advance for the heads up and advice!

On the deck of your OWB should be no issue at all. Also swimming in the waters around your bungalow shouldn't be an issue. Around the pool, use you discretion. Walking around the resort, absolutely cover up.

There were people topless in the water by the OWB at Le Tahaa all the time.

That's the only place we've been in FP that I've seen it.

Can't imagine it'd be a problem on your own bungalow or in the water by it like we saw there.
