I think it depends on what resort you are at and how much self confidence you have.
That said, there is a general homophobia among young Jamaican men.  Jamaica is not gay friendly.
In JA it may be best to stick to resorts that are clothing optional, or that have clothing optional beaches.

 There is a word that has been said in many of the posting, nothing wrong with the word and in fact it is a reason why Jamaica is a possible destinations for many of us: Cheap. Cheap tickets, cheap beer, cheap food, cheap hotel rooms. Well, maybe not so much and not everywhere, there are many highend deluxe resorts, BUT this affordability, this cheapness, attracts some tourists with a cheap mentality. You get what you paid for. What I like about Jamaica and seven mile beach is its vibe, it's energy. But this too attracts those ugly elements that get too drunk too early and believe they're still in the school playground where it (was) OK to bully people. Oh, they're just having fun and mean nothing by it, but is sure ruins our day. If I want busy I go to Miami, or Las Vegas. When thinking of a "vacation" and and island vacation I'm thinking relaxing, quiet, the sound of calm surf gently crashing on a white sand beach, the breeze through the palm trees, not Madonna or George Michael blaring from some beach bar! Think Turks and Caicos or similar destinations. A little more expensive, maybe not hundreds of honeys walking around but sure a lot more relaxing; and if you do your research right you can still enjoy it a bargain price.

"This is why we always stay at an all inclusive where nudity is permitted and required on the nude beach.  Hedo is our favorite."
Hedo is a good value in terms of what you get for the money, and it used to be a fun place to stay ... I stayed there several times in the 90s and it was naughty but that's it.  Since then you get a little too much for your money!  They have sexualized the place to the point that we cannot go back.  We went two years ago and personally witnessed open sex on the prude ("clothing optional") side next to the prude grill, I witnessed a 3-way by the nude pool as well as countless BJs, my wife was hit on while I was scuba diving, numerous people kept asking to "swing" with us, they were giving an "educational" class on BJs that we discovered was class participation, and they were running x-rated videos at the pool parties.  Yeah, and the people at Sandals next door kept walking through to get an eyeful -- while I got hooted out for trying to walk the beach past Sandals in my g-string.  Talk about a bad trip!  It wasn't that way before.  We talked to some of the staff and they were even more uncomfortable with the situation than we were.  If this is your kind of thing, go for it.  We have since stayed at N Resort and Couples Sans Souci, and while those both have their own problems, you can at least bring your wife without fear that she's going to get hit on the minute your back is turned.  And N Resort has a long beach you can walk in a thong or even nude.

 We have friends who prefer c/o or nude resorts and they have given up on Jamaica. The hotels just aren't managed well and their experiences weren't that much fun due to the incompetent staff and deteriorated condition of the properties. They bought a condo in Tucson that is c/o and live full-time there as much as possible. When they need a beach "fix" they head to Mexico.

Shaveandsmooth, I think you should give up on the idea of thonging in Jamaica.  My experience has been bad twice, and then you consider what DavyJ says.  If you just want to wear a thong, try Venice Beach in California or South Beach in Miami or Fort Lauderdale where JM goes.  Venice seemed pretty accepting when I was there and there are lots of endorsements of thonging on South Beach on this forum.  Overseas, I don't know many places accepting of male thongs except maybe some of the Spanish islands.*****If you want C/O, N Resort in Jamaica was fun and we really enjoyed our stay there, but it was kind of run down and anyway they are out of business now.  Couples Sans Souci is nice but the nude area kind of sucks in that the beach is next to worthless and there are locals all over the place.  I wore my thong **once** walking from the room to the nude area and was hooted at, because the textile part is the young dork shorts crowd, just like Sandals next door to Hedonism II.  Hedo itself is okay if you are into swinging and drinking.  I know some people are into that but we aren't and if you aren't, it's not a place you want to be.  That is a shame because back in the 80s and 90s, it was merely "naughty" and IMHO a lot more fun.  So, I have to agree with Pikeman that Jamaica is crossed off our list.  We like Hidden Beach Resort in Mexico because it's luxurious, well-run, and classy ... but it's also expensive and the beach is so well hidden as to be virtually nonexistent.  We will go back there every year because we have a group of friends that meet there yearly.  We are interested to try Paya Bay Resort in Roatan.  Otherwise a non-swinger nudist can do better just going to Black's Beach in San Diego, Haulover, Apollo/Playalinda, or Blind Creek Beach in Florida, or any of numerous nudist resorts various places here in the U.S.*****Of course, you can always wear a thong at a C/O place ... but why?

Here is an update for whoever that interested in Couples Negril. My wife and I just got back from our honeymoon a couple of weeks ago and it was a really pleasant experience. My wife wore multiple NVR thong bikinis and no one seemed to mind at all. We saw a few other girls wearing thongs up and down the beach and also a couple of topless women as well. For the most part though, the overall experience was great. The locals did not mind her thong bikinis, they actually accepted it. One local lady even told her how good she looked in her bikini, which was a plus. We will for sure be going back because thonging there is definitely accepted.

nmiller117 that sounds great. it sounds like you hit on a good week at Couples Negril. We used to stay at Firefly (when they had a c/o beach)  and I liked to walk the beach in both directions twice a day. Never did see anyone in thongs at Couples or Sandals. Having said that we haven't been back in 2 yrs now... hopefully things are lightening up at the big all inclusives.

First and foremost, conrgats to you, nmiller, on tying the knot!

The mrs. and I honeymooned at Couples Ocho Rios wayyyy back in 2007, best nine days of my life amplified by spending nearly all of the daytime hours in a thong.  I can echo your sentiments regarding the locals; the entertainment staff in particular was nothing but accommodating and accepting of me and my swimwear, going as far as to defend me to a couple of guests who felt the need to complain. (Why people feel the need to run to authority figures without saying anything to someone's face baffles me, but that's another topic altogether.)

I was the only one wearing anything even remotely skimpy the whole time.  I think that thong sightings at resorts are more a matter of luck; there's no real trend, it all depends on who's staying at the same time you are.  We're planning to go back for our ten-year anniversary, and would definitely consider a Couples resort again.  Wholeheartedly recommended.

Well, the reaction from the Couples staff seems to depend on where you are and whom you're dealing with.  And perhaps "when."  JSJax said, "I can echo your sentiments regarding the locals; the entertainment staff in particular was nothing but accommodating and accepting of me and my swimwear."  That was at Couples Ocho Rios in 2007.  I was at Couples Sans Souci last summer (2014) and was hassled daily by the scuba staff about my SPEEDO (!!!) and was told to "put something on" (I ignored this person and all was well, but again, that was just a SPEEDO.  The one and only time I wore my thong there, it was just to walk from our room to the nude beach area, and I got hooted at the entire walk so I never repeated it.

@Faceless: That seems surprising to me.  Did the scuba staff work for the resort, our were they their own entity?  I'd think that the resort staff would be accustomed to seeing a variety of swimwear styles on their guests, or at least financially motivated to not alienate anyone.  I've also heard that homophobia is (was?) rampant in Jamaica, could have something to do with it if the service was provided by an outside company.

No, as far as I remember they were wearing Couples T-shirts and I really think they're Couples employees because it's included in the price of the resort and they use the Couples boat.  To tell the truth, it was mainly just one person and the rest didn't say anything, but it was really darned annoying and you know what they say about how one bad apple spoils the bunch.  This one person hassled me daily about my Speedo.  I just ignored him and I really should have spoken to the manager, so I'm partly to blame, but there was no reason for this at all.  I'm in shape and it's not a particularly revealing Speedo, either.  And, when I learned to dive, ALL the divers wore Speedos because you didn't want something to get all bunched up under your wetsuit.  Now you would think that a place offering scuba as an included amenity would see a fair number of Speedos and be used to it, but it seems like their main clientele on the clothed side is 20s-30s Americans, all of whom seem to wear dork shorts as a uniform.  Never saw another Speedo around, let alone a thong.  Of course we spent most of our non-diving time on the nude side so it was mostly a moot point.

Faceless... Your duty is to inform the management as to the conduct of that ignorant employee. He needs to be properly educated as to his conduct with patrons.  You are at fault for not attending to such a serious breech of service during your paid holiday. Tell the management that you and your numerous friends take serious the misconduct of rude and hostile employees.  Management neglected to to educate their hired help.  You get only what you paid for. Did you specifically pay to have and ongoing unpleasant rude hourly worker ruin your holiday???  Remind the management that you and others who might consider visiting that resort are under no obligation to visit or be insulted by such rude employees. Your holiday monies can be better spent at other resorts or in other countries. Request a formal apology from that employee and the management, as well as a letter affirming that corrective reeducation has been taken and that you have a written commitment that this behavior will never again be rendered to paying patrons.  By not doing so you allow that obnoxious individual to misrepresent the enterprise from which he earns his livelihood.  Bad habits begin when corrective actions or rules are not posted and followed!

1)  I agree with writing the management a letter.

There is quite a bit of homophobia in JA.  Management needs to clearly train their staff on overcoming that, and being polite and respectful to their guests.

2)  I have not lived in JA for 30 years, two generations, but in my time Negril was a lot more relaxed than Ocho Rios.  Ocho Rios was then almost a US outpost, crawling with cruse ship tourists and hotels catering to Americans. 
Back then racial tension and attitudes towards the tourists in both Ocho Rios and Montigo Bay were a lot more hostile than in the rest of the country. We put this down to the poor way Americans treated the locals.

Tourists from cruse ships have to queue to get off, queue for taxis to go to their activity for the day, and are under time pressure to get everything done and back on-board before the ship leaves.  This exacerbates the situation, of having small towns overrun by thousands of less than gracious cruse ship escapees.

Ocho Rios was just a little fishing village until they put in hotels and cruse ship docks. Now the 1st, 2nd and 3rd way to make money is by dealing with tourists. That entire section of coast has only one business, tourism. Unfortunately a large part of that has been Americans, who bring their own attitudes and prejudices to mold the environment. 

IN addition, the US, under the guise of religious tolerance, has allowed religions to spew homophobia, which has been successfully exported this to the churches of Jamaica.

Jamaicans are mostly a loving and friendly people,
but the rampant and vitriolic homophobia by some is becoming a real problem, even for gay Jamaicans. 

When you have a problem write letters. Write travel reviews. Let them know. 

In the Caribbean consider staying well away from towns with cruse ship terminals.  As a general rule, the less contact with cruse ship tourists the better and more relaxed the locals will be.

Touche.  Of course you are right that I should have brought it up with management at the time, but that was July 2014 and I don't know the name of the guy, so I think a "complaint" letter now would be nearly useless.  However, as it happens, we belong to a group that's planning to visit Couples Sans Souci next March.  I think what I will do is write management a month or so before I go and tell them that I intend to wear a thong or at least a Speedo for my scuba and I would appreciate them educating the scuba staff that this is acceptable.  It would be cool if I got an e-mail back from management that a thong for scuba is perfectly okay, then they couldn't say anything ... although the guests on the clothed side might.
The idea of "homophobia" at a Couples resort is just ridiculous anyway.  All us guys are there with our wives, for pete's sake.  You can't even book a room at Couples unless you are a couple, and if there were any gay male couples, I didn't see them.  So what does this guy think, I'm married to a woman (for 29 years, no less) but I'm gay because I'm wearing a Speedo???  I am constantly amazed at the level of stupidity in this world.

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at Hedo II in 2011 and we went back in 2014.  Of course, thongs, nudity, and sexually explicit activities are fully accepted and expected on the Hedo grounds, and we take full advantage of the entire Hedo experience.  My wife and I were either in thongs, sexy theme night costumes, or completely nude while on the Hedo property.  When we went on the day cruise to Rick's Cafe, we were nude on the catamaran, but took a minimal change of clothes for the bar.
When we were there in 2014, I decided to do a run down the beach.  I wore a navy blue N2N swim thong.  It was about 9:00 AM, so the beach wasn't very crowded.  I got some looks, but no one gave me a hard time.  However, later in the week, my wife and I took a walk down the same beach and it was in the early afternoon.  I once again wore the N2N swim thong and she wore a Wicked Weasel thong bottom without a top, although, she had a bikini top and I had an aussieBum bikini in our bag.  
We got a ways down the beach, but eventually a hotel security guard (I don't remember which hotel) stopped us and claimed that we were not appropriately dressed.  He wanted her to put her top on and he said that I needed a different swimsuit.  I argued with him and asked if it was illegal for her to be topless.  He replied that it was not, but that we needed to be more covered up to walk past the remainder of the hotels.  I thanked him for his recommendation, took my wife's hand, and we continued to walk down the beach without changing.  (Although, I did consider stripping my thong off and changing into the aussieBum bikini right there in front of him on the beach!)  Regardless, the interaction had flustered my wife and she felt uncomfortable for the rest of the walk.  Some local kids laughed and pointed at us (probably me more than her), and she finally gave in by putting her bikini top on; however, I wore the thong until we got back to the Hedo grounds where I ditched it all.  
We stayed on the Hedo property for the rest of the trip.

Regardless of our experience off-property, Hedonism II itself is the most free and accepting place that we've ever been.  Thongs are seen everywhere.  The dining area only requires that you not be nude.  The theme night costumes often involve sexy clothing that includes thongs, so it's common to see thong bikinis throughout the day and into the evening parties even in the primary dining area.  Keep in mind that the other restaurants do have more stringent dress codes.  One night, my wife had been body painted and went topless to our Teppanyaki dinner but for safety reasons, they required that she wear a top.  No worries.  
Topless and g-string sailing on resort-provided Hoby cats, topless kayaking, fun games at the nude pool, naked scuba diving on the same reef as vanilla resort tourists, sex with the wife on the anchored platform in the lagoon off the nude beach as vanilla tourists pass by on their resort's boats, the wife having sex on the nude beach bar top with a cool black friend, a neighbor asking for help getting a crab out of their room, getting the crab out of the neighbor's room and being thanked by ending up in bed with them...  You don't have these experiences anywhere else, folks!

Hedonism II is definitely not for everyone, but if you enjoy no rules, balls out sexy fun, then you're gonna love Hedo.  If you aren't into open sexual intimacy and partying, then I'd recommend that you look elsewhere.

If you are at Hedonism II, you should try to get a room/cottage at the c/o section, where you can wander around in the all-together. You won't be harassed. As the locals say, "no problem, mon."

In my experience, a full-back bikini would definitely NOT catch flack on Jamaica.  I would expect standard Speedo-style bikini swimwear to be accepted anywhere on Jamaica.  I have worn an aussieBum bikini on a 5-mile walk up and down the beach past most of the resorts, and no one said anything.  My wife wore a thong bikini bottom and a tiny triangle top for that same walk, and we were completely accepted.

Our only hassle came from another walk when I wore a thong bikini and she was topless in only a thong bikini bottom.  I'll admit that we would have been pushing the envelope of society's acceptance almost anywhere, and we were openly walking down the public beach on a conservative island.  Some kind of comments and/or hassle would be expected. 

Regardless, a Speedo-style bikini on you and a thong bikini on her would be accepted on Jamaica almost anywhere.

 Jamaica seems to have a big problem. IMO any resort property needs to have staff, and any subcontractors who are on-site to respect the guests. And for that matter, the policy ought to be included in the rules of conduct they apply to the guests. Being a guest does not include the privileged of rude or obnoxious behavior toward any other guest or staff. Unless  it's a c/o venue, a g-string ought to be considered adequate unless stated as such in their public websites and booking aps. Hidden Beach has the small handicap of having a textile venue blocking access to open (nude) beach frontage. I wear a thong to and from the edge of the property and then remove it to jog/swim/walk nude to the next private venue. I have not paid much attention, but there have been no issues with the textile guests or staff when coming or going. I had some pleasant conversation with a female guest who wanted to know where she could get a thong like mine for her husband, and some other nice chats in the water with folks who were more interested in the water quality of the far beach than my exposed backside. So if indeed someone DID care, they had the common sense to behave themselves.Karisma hotels, who own HBR is opening a number of luxury adult properties in Jamaica. I hope they get in front of this issue right away because if I visit, I will wear a thong and will not put up with snotty staff. The locals who frequent the beaches are another matter and that may prompt me to "pass" on Jamaica entirely.

Nautirogue said, "Depending upon where you are, you might get some comments or be harassed.  Regardless of the reactions, you have every right to wear it."  Well, of course you "can" wear your thong/g-string, but most of us don't want to be hassled every step of the way.  Last year I wore at Couples Sans Souci, I wore my thong from the room to the nude beach at CSS.  It sounded like a jeering section from my fellow tourists in the textile beach.  And one member of the scuba staff even hassled me about a perfectly normal Speedo.  Since that was only one person, it wasn't hard to ignore him and he shut up after the one time, so you are probably okay in a Speedo as long as you don't imagine there will be no hassles at all.  Heckuva note, but like bronzedbuns85 said, most of us go on vacation to relax, not to be hassled even if we are within our legal rights.

"You got hassled for wearing a thong ftom your room to the nude beach at a place called Couples Sans Souci.......Bizarre, sad,  absurd.  I can imagine most of the guests were American?"  Yes, yes, yes, and most likely.  In my experience, the most likely group to hoot will be young 20-30ish midwesterners who are overweight and who've probably never seen a thong, let alone a guy in a thong.  I am always amazed at the pressure for conformity among this group ...  Folks from the coasts seem to be a lot more accepting.

 The lady is set on Couples Negril. Next year we'll have to book a vacation in the DR. I always figured that these places get so many Europeans that they'd be wearing small swimwear and everything would be ok.

Don't think all of us Americas are fat, boardshort wearing jackasses :)

We have been going to the same motel, Legends, for about 6 years now.Legends caters to largely a European and Canadian crowd and I think that makes all the difference in the world. I wear a thong from the room, through the restaurant and to the beach several times a day. I walk right past the motel manager each trip. They are very supportive of their guests, and I have never had a staff member say anything to me. I had trouble once walking the beach about a mile north from the motel, where a mix of US young males gave me catcalls. I think the big name motels that cater mostly to anal retentive Americans are partly to blame with the anti-thong atmosphere. I also had trouble from a local homophobe Jamaican guy roaming the beach selling arm bands--the Legends Security guy bounced him off that part of the beach. Last Spring was very nice, was in a thong the whole time except for dinners in the restaurant and 1 hour across the street at the mall. I refrain from walking north, and on the south there is a "flea market" set up and everybody there is pleasant and happy and no comments about my very low cut micro Dore thong. We will be there for year 7 on April 6-13 come join us!

 We leave for Negril on Sunday and I have my 2 skinzwear thongs packed along with skinz square cut boxer and speedo style. I also have regular above the knee swim trunks.

I hope to thong for a little while on the beach to get a nice tan line. I'll wear a pair of shorts over it until we get to our chairs and then peel them down. My vacation, I intend to enjoy it and wont hesitate to tell people off if they make rude comments.

My girl and I have matching skinz thongs in the Hawaiin floral print 4109 and we wanna wear them together.

I will report back with my experience next week, hope we have a good time.

 We just got back and I think the Jamaicans are back to being thong tolerant again. I actually ran into the same homophobe on 3 different days and he never said a thing to me this year. I had a thong on from 8AM to 7 PM (dressed for dinner!) everyday. Walked the beach and went out on a few different boats to snorkel on the reefs, always in a tiny low cut thong.  Even my wife was totally tolerant. I had a different Dore thong on each day; one girl at the motel commented at the bar that she "liked my choice of swimwear, most guys aren't confident enough to wear a t-back". Great weather every day too.

 Heading to Couples San Souchi soon and plan to thong on the textile beach.  I'll  wear shorts to/from the beach and show the thong only on the beach.  My wife feels more comfortable in a one piece full-back suit, and we'll be together most of the time.  I'm in pretty good shape/low weight should look decent in minimal swimwear.  Can anyone share if I'm likely to be the only male thonger?  And how likely is it that I'll be harrassed?

Having been to Couples Sans Souci twice, at different times of the year, I can assure you that unless you are traveling with friends who are also thongers, you definitely will be the ONLY thonger on the textile beach (whether male or female).  It's totally legal, but if not directly hooted at, I guarantee there will be a lot of gasps, and probably an ambulance will need to be called for the other guests, who will have a heart attack from having seen a man's rear end.  My advice is to wear a speedo on the textile beach.  You'll also probably still be the only one, and you'll get some looks, but at least no harassment from the guests.  They'll just think you're European.  That has been my experience twice.  However, I experienced harassment from a member of the scuba staff even wearing a speedo, although on my last trip they were cool about it.  Get a really small speedo, it seems to be the "ass" that is the trigger.  Better yet, just spend your time on the nude beach side.  It's been upgraded quite a lot and there are actually more guests there than on the textile side.  Those folks actually play games and talk, and it's way more fun because nobody's trying to impress anybody.  The nude beach has better sand and a river you can float in, but it's too shallow and rocky to swim in unless you use water shoes.  However, the slimy muddy bottom on the textile side sucks, too.

 I never did wear my thong at couples and neither did my girl :( She was too shy and self conscious. I did wear a skinzwear boxer brief suit and got positive responses from wives of a group of people we made friends with.

Couples Sans Souchi has confirmed that thong wearing on their beaches is both legal and consistent with their resort policy.  So if I'm the only guy on the CSS beach in a thong - so be it.  It's not some sexual thing.  It's about enjoying the sun and not having some bulky, wet suit that clings.     

However, if hooting and catcalls start then I'd be inclined to walk up to the person(s) - in my thong - and kindly request they relax and not be intolerant or judgmental.  If that didn't stop the harrassment, I'd approach a second time - in my thong - and remind them again along with a warning that a complaint will be lodged with resort staff but I'd be hopeful that it wouldn't be necessary.  An unlikely third time would trigger a third approach - in my thong - letting them know that a formal complaint with the resort was being made and to expect a resort response. 

Time to respectfully stand up for our right to enjoy our vacation without others trampling on it with harrassment.  Live and let live mon.

Well, Brutus, you are absolutely right about the legality issue, but in two trips, I haven't seen one thong on either male OR female, so it's kind of inevitable that you're going to be the show.  And due to the small size of the textile area, it's kind of doubtful that anyone would hoot or catcall, because that would be far too obvious.  No, it will be more like a whispering campaign behind your back and sneaking photos of you that they'll then post on Facebook. 

I wish you well, and I share your anger and frustration about why something that's legal should be treated thusly, but that's the way it is with these people.

I am not going to wear my thong when I go back there next March, because I go on vacation to relax and if I'm spending my time confronting @$$holes, that's not relaxation.  I'd rather go directly to the nude beach and spend my time there anyway among people who are accepting.

 It's because most men are FAT...those who are fat are secretly ashamed....body acceptance yeah right!  For women it's the same issue!

Thongs are OK on the beach unless you run into a group of insecure teenage Americans that may call out to you.Sensatori is a family hotle, so I doubt the management will like your thongs. Best to email them and just ask.  (We've been to Negril 7 times now and all I ever wear there is a thong all week. We always stay at Legends)

30 years ago you could walk from the North end, where Negril Beach Village (now Hedonism II), Coconut Grove and the Sundowner were once clustered, all the way to the village at the South end stark naked, because there was no buildings or people on the beach except for a very small place half way down.
Now there are bars, restaurants and hotels packed cheek to jowl all the way along, and the beach is populated by people hawking chairs, or drinks at their bar. For a while some of the bars ran very loud music all night that could be heard for miles. I understand that has been curbed.
Some of the beach front bars like Margaritavile specialize in catering to bus loads of cruse ship tourists coming in from Montigo Bay.

Jamaican men can be rather homophobic, so if you are with a women you should not get any problem, however a single male, or a pair of men walking together in thongs is likely to get some comments or negative reaction, even though Negril is generally a laid back little beach town.
 
If you are alone and a negative comment will cut you to your heart, then maybe walking miles down the beach trolling for comments is not the best idea. On the other hand, if you are thick skinned and can shrug off the negative comments enjoy the positive ones then have fun. Otherwise I would suggest changing into a thong on day one, but staying near your hotel or a part of the beach you find thong friendly.
