There are 3 miles of beach with people spread out. Thongs on women are common, especially younger women, who are often seen around 'Las Olas Blvd' and for the two miles of beach to the north.. Thongs on men are also common but spread out over the 3 miles so you may not notice them unless you stroll the lenth of the beach. No problem for men or women to wear thongs, but topless women are a lot less common.

Beware that in the United States, local laws often prevent women from sunbathing topless, even if thongs are allowed. In most other countries where thongs are prevalent, topless sunbathing is usually acceptable. Ask for local advice if unsure.
