For those that have been to Pinel recently, were there many/any women that were topless? How about thongs and/or string bikinis?

Hope that isn't your only criteria for going to Pinel. You'll find that on any and all French beaches.

What in my post would lead you to believe that it is any criteria, much less my only criteria?

OK, settle down people. Scuba--I understood the question was how prevalent have people seen it recently. Just because topless is legal everywhere on the French side, it does seem to be dwindling down quite a bit in practice.

Southbound--I don't have an answer for you as I haven't been to Pinel in years. Hopefully somewhere here will be able to answer your question.

Sorry if my reply seemed contentious...it was really a question of curiosity as was my initial question. We generally visit the island twice a year so we are reasonably familiar with dress or lack there of on most of the beaches. We just haven't been to Pinel in 6-7 years. FWIW, you may find us in a one piece, traditional two piece, topless, bottomless or some point in between, so it really doesn't matter, nor is it a criteria for where we chose to hang out that day.

When I was there last year I didn't see any topless but there were thongs. But I wouldn't be surprised if someone did go topless. have fun!

Been there many times over the years and don’t recall seeing any topless ladies.

While I was there for part of a day just over a week ago, I can confirm I went topless. I was probably the only one, but it wasn't busy. I did the trek to the North side of the island, but left the bottoms on lol. Those were off for most of the week as I stayed primarily on Orient.

When we were at Pinel a year ago May there were topless and thongs being worn by some that shouldn't have but that was a personal observation. LOL We didn't make it to Pinel this last May but I assume nothing has changed.
