Absolutely. Clothing OPTIONAL... Your choice... I really do not agree with those who obsess about others wearing clothes or not. I wear whatever I like, you wear whatever you like. Everyone is comfortable with what they are wearing.. To me, the folks that obsess over others wearing clothes are at least as messed up as those who have a hizzy fit over people being naked.




Well, said!!! What one wears, or not on a clothing optional beach is their business. If they choose to be clothed or nude, or somewhere in between is fine with me. We first experienced the beach at Club Orient while visiting on a cruise ship.

Were we a little bit apprehensive, you bet we were. did we feel a bit intimidated, walking the beach -- you bet we did. Did we feel welcomed? Not all that much. Are we glad we experienced it? Oh, you bet.

We Have visited the Island six times now by cruise ship. Where do we spend the day? At the beach at Club O.

This is our also our third land vacation on SXM, and 99% of our time is spent at the Club O beach.

Don't be so quick, to chastise the folks who are clothed, they may be converts tomorrow. Now, those who are taking photographs, or video... Give them the presumption of innocence, and gently explain to them that that is inappropriate. If they insist, then notify security, and let them handle it.

I have 2 issues. first of all I dont understand why someone would buy a chair and unbrella at club O and choose to remain clothed. They are the most expensive chairs, and the bar is the most expensive on all of Orient Beach. Second, I don't have a problem with people looking as they walk down the beach, we have all done that, and thats how we ended up there, But do you have to be so obvious and stare? Thats what I don't get. Then the ones with thier cell phones and cameras attached to thier hip or hanging around thier neck, Jees, get a life. OK 3 issues.....

We have often had friends that wanted to spend the day on the beach with us, so they rented chairs at Club O and had bathing suits or were topless. Club O people are the friendliest in the world and (most of them) don't care what you wear or don't wear. That's what clothing optional is about. It's about the PEOPLE, not about what they are wearing. You don't get the same vibe anywhere else down the beach. And the Club O portion of the beach is usually the best section, with less seaweed, wider, and no beach bar every ten feet. As far as the chairs being the most expensive, yeah, for sure the chairs are much better down the beach. As far as the bar being the most expensive, well, no not really, considering some places won't let you bring your own drinks or food and especially when you figure in happy hour, with the incomparable Willie! To me, I ignore the walkers/gawkers/whoever. If they have cameras and they bother you, talk to security and they will take care of it. Otherwise, ignore them, don't get yourself in a lather.

my 2 cents ...
IMHO it is the people there taking pics without approval. Whether they are clothed or not should not be the issue just the invasion of privacy.

sometimes security not quite on the ball andthey've slipped by security and now it is you and them or you have to run all the way to security to deal with it.

many are nonchalantly walking with the camera around the neck or the phone in their hand at their sides.

Security needs to tell them to put camera inside their shirt on in their pocket. today's camera phones are hi res.

go to youtube --- there is exactly this , a camera at a lopsided angle strolling down and then turning around strolling back. every so often the person does a 180 to get a double take on the charis or passersby.

it will get worse over time

security needs to step up their warnings

gawk with your eyeballs not your machines

From the thread Nude Beach north side of Cozumel :
...Also, the bartender I knew as Julio had a special photo album behind the bar that he MIGHT share for a tip...

Not only is this voyeurism but professional voyeurism at that. How would you like some beer jockey showing your nude photos for tips?

Is a "nude beach" designation different than "clothing optional"?

I think it would be nice if people who are comfortable being nude would understand that being in a swimsuit is, for some people, as nude as they're comfortable with. Maybe by coming to a "nude" beach, they feel that they're among a less judgmental crowd, and people who can be nude around them would be easier to be around than other clothed people.

Not everyone can visit a clothing optional beach once and decide that they're immediately ready to shed their clothes. "Swimsuit" itself is a scary enough proposition for some; i'd suggest to the OP that a little empathy would go a long way.

If I can't be a good example, I'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Dharma--If one is going to be technical, yes, you are supposed to be nude on a 'nude beach', versus a 'clothing optional' beach. To me, I find Club Orient in St. Martin--a clothing optional beach--to be the proper mix. I can wear a suit. Or not. You can wear a suit. Or not. I'm perfectly fine with that. And if people walk by who have clothes on, I could care less, so long as they are not right up in my face--or laughing and pointing.
