(I'm blushing as I type...)
I know the dress-code for the town is ultra casual but what about the beach? Any nude beaches on the Caye? Top-on or top-less on the resort beaches? Also, any beaches in town that are public? We're staying at Paradise Villas and while I know they have a dock and a pool, no beach was mentioned.
We just got back from a summer in Europe and I finally got used to the casual nudity (eventually LOVED it)but I don't want to offend anyone. Just thought I'd ask.
Thanks!
PS: Great board you've got here, very imformative!

See my reply to your question under "beaches" topic. All beaches are public... I think.

Thanks so much for the info. A girl hates to committ a major faux pas on her first day of a 30 day vacation. Besides, I really want everyone to be...comfortable. Ha!

Take care!

Hi Playabees: I've seen some topless, but usually in isolated areas. I don't think that its appropiate around Town, since children walk along the beach all the time, and public nudity is certainly NOT apart of the Belizian culture. While certainly not an expert on such matters, it seems that Saroong's are very appropiate to wear over your swim wear while on the Town Streets. Nothing seems as out of place as swim wear on Middle Street. Good Luck, and have a great trip. Bill PS. The above does not apply to Italian Women!!

LOL......Bill is right....Belizean people are very modest...unless they are going to Barefoot Iguanas for some dancing...then the attire can get pretty skimpy...LOL

Most Belizean women don't even wear bathing suits...they wear shorts and a t-shirt.
And yes...you will see families with children at most resorts.

Get somebody to take you north about 8 miles up....it's isolated...not a soul around.....pack a picnic lunch and sun in the buff all you want. I'd give the boat driver the heads up b/4 you do though.....he should probably be prepared for a fun day.....LOL

This time of year...I'd make sure I had plenty of bug spray....or really lather up in oil....the sand flies should be rallying their armies right about now.
A good slick coat of oil will keep you from getting chewed alive......of course you will be covered in little flies that have met their doom trying to swim in your oil....LOL

Sounds attractive huh?

Not to worry...they wash right off!
