Re:Beaches of Australia

After two weeks in QLD, I'm back and tanned!

Spent my time around Surfers over on the protected northern side of the Spit, up past Seaworld. The strong southerly afternoon breezes made the beaches a bit cool. Of the four occasions I went, I saw guys in thongs three times, so they are definately still more popular up there. I did a bit of beach walking around the area, where quite a few people look as though they might live on their yachts, and nobody seems to bother what you do. It was a lovely spot, and I was able to go from my car to the beach in just a thong at all times, without the need to cover up. I liked it more than the regular beaches.

In Byron Bay, I found the stretch of beach used by the nudists, to the north of town. Here about 50% of the crowd would walk from the car park to the beach naked, male and female! And that was on a busy Sunday. I wore my thong, even when surfing. I decided to walk the whole length of the beach back to Byron township, about 1 1/2 hrs all up. All I took was my keys and phone, and wore a hat, sunnies, and thong. My turnaround point was the breakwall on the main beach, the one you often see in the Wicked Weasel model photo shoots. I had one negative comment off, you guessed it, a dork-shorted 14yo boy in a group of mates. A long stare stopped any further comments. Apart from that, it was a wonderful way to pass the afternoon. There were plenty of females in thongs & g's along this stretch of beach, and even a few Wicked Weasels. It's surprising how easy they are to pick from a distance! A few nude guys , even close to town, but no more in thongs. I think the majority would just go nude, as it's a pretty laid back hippy/tourist type place.

A good two weeks though! Too bad I'm back to reality and well on the way to winter. I'm looking forward to summer already!

Dear all Thongers! Is Bondi Beach in Syney a popular place for thong in the summer? I went there last year late  spring and saw great crowd sun-bathing along the shore but didn't see anyone wearing thong. Quite dissapointed. I am planning to visit Sydney again soon. Anyone knows where around Sydney region best for thonging, but not quite nudist. ??? 

Your opinion will be much appreciated!

Hi Hothong,

These days thongs are starting to become a bit rare on Sydney beaches. I used to thong regularly on Bondi (South end) and Tamarama Beaches, but don't so much now. I did it a few times last year on Tamarama but I was the only one.

Thonging mid week is probably better, as the beaches are less crowded, and particularly less crowded with packs on youths in board shorts. The South end of Bondi, or if you want to swim between the flags, the Northern set of flags is probably best for Bondi. The central area seems to be a bit negative these days. Other smaller beaches probably work too, but I'm really guessing. I'd probably try Tamarama, Balmoral, Chinamans, Camp Cove. I've seen thongs at all of these in the past, but there are probably many other beaches that are OK. Some others on this board recommend Coogee or La Perouse, but I have no personal knowledge of these.

Of course, the nude beaches are thong friendly, but like you, I often prefer a regular beach.

Good luck, and I hope the weather holds for you. After a great start to Summer, the last week or more has been pretty ordinary.

I totally agree with Peter. Bondi is okay, but I prefer other beaches. Most of the beaches are better midweek as there are not so many of the "masses". Camp Cove and Coogee are my preferences. I have worn micro thongs on both of these beaches on my own and with g/f (often in thong also) with no problems.

It's been 30-35+ every day around Newcastle area for over a week now. I've got some ood time in at the beach and pool, and a really prominant thong tan-line. Life is good!

Seaford is a great spot to thong, would probably be there on the weekend with the family.    The water seems to be cleaner, and there's almost always somebody else thonging around.

During the week I only can afford a quick swim and sunbake at Port or South Melbourne beach at lunch time, it's been a bit too family-ish there over the last weeks, because of school holidays.  On this period I spotted very few other thongers around, seems like if they are waiting for the school holidays to end and the beach to become less noisy and more relaxed.

I've also being to Sandridge on some week days with the family after 5 pm, (you are right joecooper, nothing better to do on the day of the blackout),   I only wear my thongs there when is really sunny and hot, not to ruin the tanline.  Otherwise I wear a string bikini and just relax playing with my kids.   

Something interesting about Sandridge beach is that the south end of the beach next to the Life Saving Club seems like a Lebanese or Middle Eastern beach, 11 out of 10 people there are muslims arabs, they leave the beach a disgrace full of rubish and dirty nappies, and the women swim with long pants, long sleeve shirts and a rug on their heads.  It was hilarious when a small wave passed and threw the bloody rug off the head of one young woman, my brother in law and I watched and couldn't stop laughing.

There was even a young couple of middle eastern looking boys wearing long trousers down to the ankles,  (still can't understand how some young men can call that "bathers")  who walked past from the south end to  the north end of the beach (where we usually stay) and tried to hit on my wife while I was swimming with my kids;  she just laughed at them, and said to me later on that she wanted to tell them that her husband was that bodybuilder swimming in the water and wearing a thong, to then see their reaction.

Other interesting thing about Sandrdidge beach is that the north end seems to be a bit of a gay spot;  plenty of men in couples sunbaking and swimming.   We are a gay  friendly family and don't mind sharing the beach with people of the gay community as long as they behave properly.  But not even one of them was wearing a thong;  all of them wear speedos, or square cut tight shorts.  

Perhaps because it's known that gay men are extremely fashion conscious. and thongs and gees are already out of fashion for them.  I think this could prove the point that thongs are not necessarily a gay oriented garment, and instead they are becoming more hetero than before.

John,

Sounds like the Arab family ladies could have used the new burkini as mentioned in another section.

I posted on another board regarding men and beach thonging. The reaction was more or less predictable. One of the posters asked of my orientation. There will always be those who associate thongs or rio's with homosexuality but some of the posters on this board who happen to be gay have mentioned that this is a ridiculous notion.

 I wish that my wife had the healthy attitude towards thonging that yours has.

Have a great summer down there while we freeze up here!

Re:Beaches of Australia

I think it's a reverse stereotype - i think people assume that thonging = gay because it's more common in the gay/bisexual community, but i think it's only more common because the majority of straight men are too self conscious to be that open in public, wheras gay/bi men are more comfortable with themselves in public circumstances.

The dilemma, though, is when gay guys get confused and try to pick up a guy in a thong/string, assuming he's gay too!

I think we should all thong... that way no one feels discriminated against, hehe.

Sounds like Seaford could be allright, esp if there are usually others thonging. I'll only get there this Saturday at this stage, and about 50/50 chance for Sunday. Say hello if you see me. I'll be on my own, probably with a white cap on (and a thong of course!)

Thongmad,

hope you went down to the beach that Saturday here in Melbourne, it was the perfect beach day and very , very hot.   I couldn't go to the beach that day, we had to help with  moving some furniture of the family,  hiring a truck and driving from one end of Melbourne to the other, lucky at least ythe van  had air conditiioning.  What a sad way of wasting a perfect beach day, but sometimes there are things that can not be avoided.

Perhaps I was already "beach-wise satisfied" that day, because me and my wife spent the whole previous day (Friday but not as hot as Saturday) at Sunnyside beach, the nudist beach south of Frankston.  She took annual leave, and I  took a "sickie".   Bought a couple of bottles of white wine, put them in the cooler  with some fruit and sandwiches,and spent sunbaking like  lizzards on the beach.     Great environment,  not many people because it  was a Friday, but most were real nudists (no tanlines) by themselves or in couples.      My wife only went nude when going to thewater for a swim, and sunbaked wearing only a thong.   I was nude all the time, but interesting, I missed wearing a thong.   Don't know if I  am too used to it, or if I like to keep my tanline, or maybe my wife is right, she says that men, unlike women,  look better wearing a thong than naked.  

It was a great day, we only were able to make it because it was a weekday and both our kids are at school and creche the whole day.    It's not a very easy access beach, I mean you have to walk around rocks to get there, and I could imagine  my little one saying "I'm tired lift me  Daddy" plus the usuals "I want to go to the toilet" etc that  can spoil your day.

While lying down  baking in the sun, I was thinking how ironic can thong wearing be.    When in a normal beach, a thonger stands out, cause majority of beachgoers are not thongers, let alone not even speedo wearers but long board shorts wearers.     And when at the nudist beach, a thonger stands out as well, because almost everybody is naked.    The solution would be a thongers only beach,  something I can not imagine ever hapenning.   And perhaps this is the real charm of being a thong wearer;   we always stand out because we are individual and different.

Hi Guts,

I go regularly to Noumea for my job. I always wear a thong at the hotel pool and on the beach (Anse Vata and Baie des Citrons), with no problem. Lots of women wear tiny thongs and are topless on the beach, so no problem. As a man, I sometimes get that weird look from some people, but I do not care.

Enjoy your stay in New Caledonia.

Moving house sucks! Sorry to hear you had to give up such a good beach day to do that! I actually only got a few hours in the afternoon on Saturday to do my own thing, so I jumped on the tram (I was around the Albert Park area) and took a look at St Kilda. I ended up a bit west of the yacht club, and had about two hours tanning in my thong. The beach east of the pier was something I'm not used to. Holy Crowds! Yet where I settled in was nearly empty by comparison. The nearest person was about 20m away, a young girl who was obviously trying to pluck up the courage to go topless for the first time ever. It was pretty relaxing, but the beach around there is another world compared to where I usually go. There were a few girls in thongs around (not many) but I was surprised at just how many went topless in the really crowded areas. Not something you'd see at the main beach in Newcastle.

Melbourne is always a fabulous place to visit, and we had a ball as usual. Next year I hope to spend a week there around the same time, so I'll have heaps more opportunity to get to the other beaches in the area. Might see you then!

Plenty of choice then.

It's a bit further south for you, but I go to the beach north of Byron Bay when I'm in the area. You turn off the highway just north of the Byron turn-off, at the airstrip. Follow the road straight to the carpark at the beach. Before you is a long open stretch of nude beach, pretty much from the carpark south to the rivermouth (you'll know it when you see it). I you go over the river mouth (usually shallow) you can walk all the way down to Byron's main beach. That's what I usually do. Or you can go north for miles, totally uninterupted. Even though it's a nude beach (official I think) I like to stick with the thong. Just my preference. I walk the whole way in a thong, cap, and sunnies, carrying only my car keys and a few dollars for a drink at the Byron end. There's a beachside cafe sort of thing in the carpark at Byron. You get stares, but the people down there have seen a whole lot more than that!

Summer has all but vanished for me in NSW. The rest of the week is predicted to be 27-28degC and fine, but moving to cooler weather after that. I'm hoping work will take me to Surfers for a week or two, as it usually does, sometime soon. Enjoy your good weather!

What beaches do you all go to, and where do you find the most thong/g friendly spots?

I'm around the Newcastle-Nelson Bay area, and spend most of my time thonging at my pool, or the beaches at the Nelson Bay area. I'll be on the Gold Coast for two weeks at the end of September, so the weathere should be spot on up there at that time.

Good to see a return to warmer weather. Spent a few hours at Kingsley Beach yesterday and had it all to myself.

Enjoy your summer everyone!

I am a little confused.  Since Byron Bay is the home of WW, I was under the impression WW's were common on the beaches around there.  My wife and I were considering a trip to the Gold Coast, so she could wear her WW's without "standing out".  Are thongs that uncommon on the beaqches there?

Re:Beaches of Australia

It's been a few years, but we found lots of couples nude at Swanboro beach and nearby in the dunes. The dunes are only about 50ft wide though no cover and not very private. Thonging at the textile beach next door was also common and accepted. We walked from the nude beach to our car in the parking lot in thongs and showered at curbside showers in thongs.

rastus and straplesspouch

I've just spent 2 weeks holidaying at the Gold Coast with my wife & 2 kids. For our first week, we were there for the last week of the Qld school holiday period, and our second was the final week of NSW holidays. The was a marked contrast. We stayed directly over from Main Beach surf club, up near the Spit. The first week the beach was very crowded, and I didn't really see any thongs, just one gent a little older than me who layed out right at the back of the beach. I only got down to my small briefs, and was the skimpiest dressed on the beach, bar the guy in his thong. Mind you we spent more time doing the theme park thing for the kids, so beach time was only a few days. The girls on the beach didn't wear thongs, but the trend is for really low-rise string bikini bottoms. Still plenty of tanned bodies on show!

The second week, everything seemed to kick back a gear or two. There was around one third of the crowds, and a more relaxed attitude. I actually tanned in just my thong, and slipped on the bikini to play with the kids near the water or swim. Towards the end of the week, there were quite a few women tanning topless, which we didn't see at all the previous week.

On our last day at the beach (typically), there were four guys (me included) and one girl in the area we frequented wearing thongs. The same guy I mentioned before was there, and had an older friend join him in a VERY skimpy g-string. It looked to be sheer white with black straps, and minimal coverage. Skimpier than anything I'd normally wear to that type of beach. Another guy walked up near us and stripped to a blue thong (looked like underwear), and swam and tanned in that for a few hours. A younger female was wearing a nice blue string sided brazillian which had small rear coverage, and she took no time pulling up into a g. I had my thong on for tanning as usual, and bikini for swimming, but the first time I went swimming with my kids, I felt like I was missing out, so I took off the bikini in the water and wore the thong for the rest of the day. Yes, I regretted not doing it earlier in the week!

Nobody really cared what we were wearing! I took particular notice to see what the reactions were to all of the thongers there, and aside from a few second glances and comments to their partner (all looked like tourists), there was very little reaction at all. I think thongs and g's are quite common around the Gold Coast, especially out of peak tourist times.

So I didn't see alot of thongs or g's, but I'm sure it was timing. In the past I've nearly always seen thongs at the beach every time I go. You may not be in the majority, but it will be totally acceptable at the beach. I suspect at 95% of the hotels there would not be a problem. Around Byron Bay is totally different to anywhere else I know. There is a prevalent 'anything goes' feel to the place, and the best place to go to wear the WW would be a short way north of the main beach, were the houses are built up to the edge of the sand. I noticed plenty of WW's along that stretch in the times I've walked along it in my thongs. You won't see many other males in them though, as is the case nearly anywhere.

Two good spots though, and I'd say 'just do it' ! You'll be dissapointed if you don't!

Re:Beaches of Australia

It's like anywhere else in Australia - as long as you're not nude, wear what you dare!

It just seems on the whole that swimwear is skimpier on the Gold Coast!

Every other time I have been there in recent years, I go to the beach in only a thong, hat, sunnies, and some reef oil, and carry a towel. The school crowd was just a bit much for the first week.

If you want a slightly more secluded spot, try the inside of the Spit up past Seaworld. There's a carpark on the left in the trees, and calm water on the other side where boats are moored. I've seen many a thong wearer around that area, and it's great when the wind gets too much at the open beaches.

Enjoy!

Well when I'm on the Gold Coast I will try my Dore draw string pouch for tanning.  It covers the front well without the discomfort of the side and t strap/string.  I believe it should be ok given it covers no less than a G-String.

By the way I came across a adhesive design for women from the US (the-bikini.com). Now I'd like to see that on the beach there!  Bare as you dare alright!

Thongmad, that was quite an interesting report.   Especially for me, I will be heading off to the Gold Coast with my wife and two kids by mid December,to tdo the whole thing, theme parks and beach.   However, we will also go with my parents in law, (doens't sound quite that good now, doesn't it?)  but I am experienced on how to get rid of them whenever I want to thong .  (nevertheless, it will be interesting to avoid my fatther in law seeing my left niple pierced, even when wearing what I would wear in front of him in the pool (a string  bikini, no way a thong).  my wife is already laughing about this.

Anyway, you said that the beach you stayed at was the Main Beach surf club, up near the Split.  Do you regret not thonging earlier on your holiday?    I understand how discouraging must be the idea, when so many young kids are hanging around on their school holidays.   My next question is:   does it annoy you having to put on your string bikini on top of your thong when you get up from sunbaking, to play with the kids?  I mean, does it ruin your tanline and leaves you with a funny bikini tan line and thong tan line at the same time?  Do you wear any particular brand of sun tanning lotion?  does it affect the fabric of your swimwear?

and finally, how did you go at Wet and Wild?   were you brave enough to wear your thong, or did you prefer the more conservative thing and wore a brief bikini?  did you spot anyone else wearing brief swimwear?  Personally, I still plan to wear a string bikini, wedged as a thong, for most of the timesof the slides;   a plain speedo as a wedgie doesn't look that good.   Will be interesting to see what happens, last time in Cairns at a water park my wife asked me to change to a speedo cause I was the centre of attention.  I doubt this would happen at Wet n Wild, although.    And obviously, I need to get rid of my parents in law the day we go to the water parks.

I reckon we need to organise a mass walk on the Gold Coast beach. Start up at the Spit or Main Beach, walk all the way down through Surfer's and Mermaid beach to Miami or Burleigh! I wonder how many people we can coax into joining.

Here's a Google Maps of the area.

I have the two weeks over Christmas off work, I'm sure others do too. This will be good if we get 10+ of us to walk through the beaches at the busiest time of the year...

I don't say I regret not wearing my thong in the crowded part of the school holidays, just a little frustrated at not really being able to because of the confidence level. Yes, I probably would have liked to get it out earlier than I did, but alas, this is just how it went. When it comes to wearing a thong in large crowds, I'm no trail-blazer. I didn't worry about puttung a bikini over my thong, because that was what made me feel comfortable about my behaviour. I was quite happy getting about in my thong when I had four others within 50m of me wearing thongs, and the beach was less crowded. It's just how I am. And I found it didn't ruin the tan lines. Because I lay out in my thong to tan, this was building my tan up well, and when I was down at the water, often waist deep, I wasn't getting a lot of sun exposure on my bumm and lges anyway. I always use Reef Tanning Oil SPF 15+. Yes, as all suncreams and oils do, it will deteriorate your swimwear with time. But the elastic is usually shot by then also from salt and sun.

Wet'N'Wild was great fun, but it's boardshort territory for guys. Because we were there at peak time, I expected that. I saw four guys in a Speedo all day. I fully intended to wear mine, but realised I'd left them back home at the van when I went to get changed. Bugger! Instead I had to wear my white boardshorts I had on, with my black thong underneath. You may be able to see it if you looked hard, even when my white shorts were wet. There was no chance I would wear the thong only. I would have been confortable in my 1" side Speedo, if I'd remembered to pack them! The dress code for girls was as usual. Everything from a t-shirt and boardshorts, right through to small, low, string brazillian style bikinis. A local radio station had four gorgeous girls walking around in very small string rio bikinis all day. They turned heads! I did not see a thong or string anywere, and wasn't really surprised at that either.

Unlucky about your In-Laws. Mine have seen me ever since they first met me in small bikini and rio briefs. My father-in-law used to go to a nude beach, so it was no biggie for him. In fact I used to go to the beach nude with him for many years, and when he can't go nude, he also wears Speedos religiously. They haven't actually seen me in a thong, but my mother-in-law definately knows I wear them. She took the clothes off the line at our house one day, and asked me if some thongs were mine. She didn't worry that I wore them, just wondered how they could be comfortable.

Anyway, try to enjoy you holiday, and get some sun!

Hi slidingG, I prefer cotton underwear worn all day, but I hate when it gets wet. I do prefer lyrca beachwear but don't get to go as much as I'd like. (I live like 2km from a beach now (one of the beaches mentioned in my post above), but just don't have time to go!) I'm looking forward to Christmas holidays: two weeks of no work = (hopefully) two weeks at the beach.

JHHow did your trip to QLD go over December? What were the beach crowds and water parks like? What about the in-laws?I spent most of my two weeks off over christmas doing the paving around my pool (still going) and wore a thong doing it pretty much the whole time. It's a good way to improve the tan!I'll be in Melbourne again soon. (14 Feb to 18Feb). As per one of your previous posts, I think I might like to check out Swanbourne. I'll get the chance on the Thursday, and Sat afternoon.Might see you there!

Good to see you back, Thongmad...I had a good time in QLD,  a bit too short for my taste though.  We only stayed 7 days,  not enough time to do all the things you can do at the Gold Coast.   We went to MovieWorld, Dreamworld and Whitewaters, one day rained the whole day, so there were actually only 2 days left, take away one of shopping, and I was left with only one afternoon for myself to sunbake wearing a thong at the beach.We stayed at Broadbeach, very nice area, more quiet than Surfers.   I thonged next to Kurawa life saving club, post 27, I was the only male thonger, a young girl not far away, a couple of ladies in topless, 2 guys in speedos, and the rest of the males wearing the fashionable revolting long board shorts.At Whitewaters (a water park similar to Wet 'n Wild but a bit smaller and more suited for smaller kids) only braved to wear my speedos.  Me and another young male were the only ones not wearing board shorts.  There was a group of young 20-22 ish  girls, wearing rio bikinis,  they became thongs after coming down the slides, all the young and middle aged dads like myself were quite amused. I think quite a few young mums liked my speedo looks,  you can tell when they smile at you and even start to chat for a while when queing for the slides.I think you were spot on by staying 14 days.   7 days is not good enough.   When you are just starting to warm up, you have to fly back home.  A couple of weeks ago, we rent a small house and stayed around the Frankston - Seaford area for one week.  We were not very lucky with the weather, only a couple of days warm enough to go for a swim and sunbake at the beach.  On our last day, we drove down the Mornington peninsula area, along the coast of Port Phillip bay.  If you come over and have a car, try to drive down the coast of Mt Eliza, and Mt Martha (south of Frankston).    Didn't thong there, but the beaches down there look very nice.  I wonder if they would be thong friendly, I bet they would.  Seaford is still very thong friendly.  Try to stay away from the pier and main lifesavings areas,  that's where most of the families and crowds use to stay.  We usually stay between gates 23 and 27.   For you, who comes from mid-north NSW, might seem a preety ordinary spot,  however the water is very clear, and the vegetation area gives that strip of the beach a sort of less crowded character.  This week we have a bit of a miserable weather, seems like autumn, however by the time you arrive, it will warm up according to the weather bureau.  Hope you have a great time down hereJohn Howard

G'Day JHI haven't been on here for a bit due to some issues with the board.Melbourne was great fun once again, but I didn't get to the beach! Too much socialising and activities all weekend!Autumn seems to have kicked in at home, too. Not great since we got back, but my tan is dark enough to last for a while yet.My next trip away with just the wife (no kids!), will hopefully be something like Thailand or Fuji. I think any more than 7 days there and I may consider never returning! Here's hoping...

well, it looks like we finally got summer in autumn here hey, g-stringers ...

reckon I'll catch a few rays this weekend in my new little Joe Snyder Rio Thong, probably down at Camp Cove , hopefully a few chicks will be there sunning their boosies and bums before the UV drops right down and we move into winter ...  I bet i got the smallest cossie on the beach ...

Well, it was a top day at the beach last saturday -  i was feeling daring so instead of the Rio Thong i wore the Joe Snyder black mesh capri in public for the first time - it was quite a buzz wearing a semi-transparent cozzie amongst the crowd, and no-one seemed to mind - i got a few interested looks from the ladies around and even heard some favourable remarks. Probably the end of summer though - looking forward to next season.

Have a look through my previous posts. Depends on how game you are, but you could really thong anywhere on the Goldy without worry. I like Byron Bay too. Depends on your tastes, I guess.
You should get warm weather and low crowds. Enjoy!

It's Sunday, fine and sunny and I have the day to myself.
After yesterday's 30degC, today is looking good! I'm leaving the house with only a cap, sunnies, and a thong on. Should be a good day at Samurai Beach.
I hope you all have something similar planned.

Bring on Summer!

 Hyde Park is a busy, manicured park in the Sydney CBD. (There are other parks named Hyde Park in Aus too, but I assume you mean this one.) I've rarely seen anyone sunning themselves there except for office workers or shoppers who come across the road and take off their shirts.

Sydney-siders usually sun on the beaches (which are many and good, and not too far from the CBD) or at public outdoor pools. Occasionally you see someone in a less busy park in their swimwear on a towel catching some sun. I have seen a guy in a park wearing a thong, but many years ago.
