Over the past several years, we have observed Paya Bay's increasing web portrayal as naturist-friendly. For this visit we hoped that some progress would have been made in this regard, given Paya's goal of "continuing creation of a very private haven where all our guests can feel extremely comfortable…" We were disappointed. We were prepared for the tedious ritual of dressing to use the restaurant. This is to humor the walk-in lunch traffic from the occasional day-tripper or cruise ship tourist. We read in the PB newsletter that you could now order lunch and have it served at the beach bar, but that still requires getting dressed and walking a moderate distance to place the order, so we ended up lunching in the restaurant anyway. However, we were not prepared for the gawking day visitors at Bliss Beach.
topless or nude sunbathing? - Roatan Forum - Tripadvisor
I would be surprised if there were NOT some rule against it. West Bay is not the most private beach, but being at times packed with Europeans, one would see some toplessness if it were permitted. And I've never seen it. And I'm looking! Probably ok for the guys though. Can't think of any small accessible beaches where you could get away with it.
Paya Bay is a private naturist most of the time resort located on a secluded acre peninsula in the Eastern part of Roatan, Honduras. It is small with a maximum of guests. It has 2 beaches, one textile, usually empty, one clothing-optional. It has numerous trails where one can roam without clothes. The facilities are somewhat oldish and in need of some renovations, mainly the bathrooms.
After reading different forums and reports, I had some concern whether Paya Bay was very nudist friendly. I can unequivocally report that it is. We spent two weeks there recently in May, and I was nude the entire time, except for a small wrap in the restaurant. I went from one end of the resort to the other daily, just for the exercise, and was never treated with anything but total respect by very friendly staff.
