Topless on Dawn beach??
      #1733195 - 05/18/17 08:26 PM (173.81.26.217)

Staying at Princess Heights near Dawn Beach in June. Is Dawn beach topless?
And if anyone has stayed at princess heights , what are your impressions about the property?
Thanks!

I don't believe there is anywhere on the Dutch side that topless is specifically allowed (some people do anyway) except for sunset bar & grill where if women went topless they got a free drink. Not sure if the rules have changed.

While there could be occasional topless use on Dawn, I certainly would not count on it at all. With regard to Princess Heights, suggest you might want to post a separate note about that.

I'm confused. I won't touch the sunset thing. As that I find was wicked tacky and now with the new sunset can't imagine. But I'm pretty sure you can go topless on any beach on the Dutch or French side. I would use your on discretion and see what's appropriate for the situation. Beach crowd can change daily. It's not an uncommon thing to see bathers topess but then put their top on to swim or go eat. But I'm pretty sure it is not "illegal" to be topless on the Dutch side. Unless I missed something?

Honestly...I have seen topless just about at every beach on the island. Even at Maho...by the Sonesta and Royal Islander. It may not be prevalent...but every now and then someone decides to take off the top....and never have seen anyone tell them to cover up.

Over at our timeshare, we've seen people go topless at Royal Islander's section of Maho bay.

You will have no problems going topless on any beach on St Martin...Sunday is family day at many beaches so you will see less topless on sunday

After living there 20 years, really don't agree with that. Sorry. Many are family beaches, especially on the Dutch Side, and topless is offensive to many locals. Look around and do what is appropriate.

In our one time eating lunch before flight at Karacter there was more than a half dozen ladies spread out amongst their chair locations sans tops and of a wide age range.

Seen topless many times at Mullet, usually young.

Don't know about Dawn.

Those are my two data points.
