We haven’t heard very much about Baie Rouge , we know that the restaurants have been removed the question I have is there parking in the same places or is it on the road only . We really enjoy that beach .

We were at Baie Rouge yesterday. It's sad to see that the Chez Raymond restaurant was destroyed and (mostly) carted away. No one is renting chairs or umbrellas, but the beach is as beautiful as ever, with no sargassum.

Baie Rouge is very much a beach no one should miss visiting. It has been clothing optional and at times just topless but it doesn't matter. If anyone has a day free go to Baie Rouge and bring your backpack with water and a blanket! Enjoy!

Probably. Perverts have no boundaries. They are opportunists.

We've seen them (the "Bush Boys") on more than one occasion. They seem to seek out couples and/or single females sunbathing topless or nude. The last time when my wife was topless, I had had enough, got up and approached the creep in an aggressive manner. He immediately pulled up his shorts and ran away. I think they are sick more than dangerous, but it still makes me nervous when they show up. I wish the authorities could do something about this because Baie Rough is not the only place this happens...

Its the way it is. You take off your cloths and your out there for all to see. Its a shame it happens but by the time authorities could react they are long gone.

Scubaman, unfortunately you're probably right. But I wonder (hypothetically of course) if a tourist was fast enough to catch one of these SOB's and beat some sense into them, how fast would the authorities show up and haul the tourist off to jail??? Not that it's something I want to do when I am on vacation, but I would certainly cheer on any hero that felt so inclined...lol

Not a good idea in a foreign country or home for that matter.

We have spent a lot of our time on the island at Baie Rouge and have seen the bush boys. What ive found that works to keep them away is to point a camera at them. It has worked well for us over the years.

I have done this for years and can attest it works.

I do not have contacts with Chez Raymond but would be willing to 'Go Fund' so he can rebuild and bring some chairs and umbrellas to the beach. Food and beverage would be appreciated as well.

That would be a wasted effort as the land owners, after years of trying, legally had him removed.

Thanks for that info... I do remember beachfront property owners blocking the road so no one could access the beach.
Honestly I am growing very tired of this power trip 'I own the beach mentality' The parking is just as stupid. "I own this parking lot?"

They closed it for two days because the parking lot was full of debris. As soon as it was cleared, the lot was opened. It was a safety issue.

Once upon a time a sign was up, and it was the same sign out on baie longe and Plum staying “no nude sun bathing”. This was a big deal with the people that owned the homes along the beach. Haven’t seen the sign in ages, but I hope that isn’t the reason the lolo’s weren’t allowed to stay. Because the home owners were angry so decided to put up a stink.

This was the first beach we visited way back in 1993 . We were staying in a villa just above Rouge. So long ago.

Can't blame them for that.. Want to bath nude go to the designated area on Orient Beach.

The clothed vastly outnumbered the nudes on Baie Rouge so I do not think Gus and Ray's were closed for that reason.
