Default St.Thomas beaches?

Is there any beach in St.Thomas where thongs or topless is popular?

Topless is not the usual in St Thomas. I can't remember ever seeing any of this at Maegens Bay, Coki or Saphire which are the main beaches. Perhaps if you ferry over to St John you can find a more secluded stretch of beach where this would not be minded.

If I recall, I think that topless is illegal in the USVI. You might want to check www.vinow.com for that. (there's also a message board there) We've vacationed on St John before (and cruised there) - and there are definitely secluded beaches if you're determined.

Okay - I had to check for myself to make sure I wasn't passing along incorrect information.

This is from a USVI tourism website (www.vinow.com):

"Nude bathing is ILLEGAL in the Virgin Islands. Salomon used to a beach where nude bathers were causally looked over however this has changed. National Park rangers patrol the beach and issue tickets to offenders!"

Saw lots of thongs ... you can see them in my St. Thomas Coki Beach photos. But none topless. Had to go to St. Marten for topless beaches ...

You need to go to a French island to find a topless beach ( Martinique, St.Maarten)
