Have spent a couple of weekends in Goa whilst on business in India in the past 6 months. Whilst it is not common for men or women to wear thong/g-string suits there are people (myself included) that do wear them to tan and swimin on the beach.I have been to the Hyatt Resort in South Goa an the Taj hotel and hoiday village at Fort Aguada in North Goa. Both have good beaches with soft sand with about 8-10miles of beach to walk on. Did not walk in my thong as this could be considered offensive to the local population, but sunning and swimming in the sea in front of the hotels themselves did not seem to be a problem.Weather was great whilst I was there - probably too good as I am got a bit too much sun. Weather is best out of monsoon season so if you are planning a visit then October to May is probably the best time to go there. If you need any more info please reply here or e-mail me.Anybody else have any experiences of thonging in India please let us know

Hi

We've been going to Goa for the last ten years or so now and tend to stay in the Candolim area

Most of the beach there is very thong tolerant for men and women., especially for about half a mile or so near Petes Shack and d'Mellos where you get a nice mix of Brits, Germans, Italians and Dutch.

We'll be there again at the end of Feb. - baring our cheeks as usual !

About 5 years ago I went to SE India with my fella. The coast south of Madras (Chennai) - the Coromandel Coast on the Bay of Bengal was stunning. Totally unspoilt and miles of sandy beach. Parts of the coast are inhabited with fishing villages but very little tourism.

We walked for miles along this coast. Just for once I felt I should keep reasonably covered and even in a fairly modest bikini I felt I was being frowned upon. My chap however wore a thong all the time as the native men often fished in nothing more than a primitive version of a thong!

Bit of a change from the norm eh?!!!

I am an Indian-American male who was first introduced to male beach thonging while in India. As medical students we would take trrips to Goa(Calangute,Baga) in th early to mid 90's.

 I was piqued by the European tourists Male and Female in nothing but thongs/G-strings on the beach. I thought that it made sense to wear such attire especially since I was wearing dork shorts!!

 My wife who was born in India thinks that I look good in thongs but is not entirely comfortable about me wearing them in public.

 We will be in Playacar in two days for one week anr so far she seems " O.K." with minimal swimwear.

 I wonder if GOA /KERALA,India is still thong friendly or at least thong tolerant???

Hi,

I'm planning to go to India next month - Karnataka at least, perhaps Goa and even the Andaman Islands, if I can make it. On the beach, I'm hoping to wear a thong at least, possibly a v-string. Anybody know anything about it? By the sounds of things here, it seems as if it won't be a problem, but thought it best to check the situation regardless.

Nothing like a thong!

Been going to north Goa on and off for last 15 years and things are still fine. i say "still' because years ago there used to be far more people in thongs ( old school hippy crowd) and many of them - including us! - still wear them. Younger kids seem to like the baggy surfer look - but no-one cares no-one stares - its accepted as "traditional" in Goa. Locals are relaxed about it. Non-local boys gawp at the topless/thonged girls (and clothed girls for that matter)  take furtive photos and fiddle in their pockets, but they do no harm and can be quite comical.. 
Kerela also used to be tolerant to thonging for both sexes but haven't been there for years ... But generally outside Goa, India is v. conservative - especially re. girls baring flesh (only OK flesh is arms & midriff/stomach area). As Lauren1 says above, in traditional coastal areas (not Bombay beaches), our western mens thongs look like tailored versions of their trad. gear - so guys can do it, sort of a 'going native look' - which I guess is how it got so readily accepted in laid-back 70s Goa - but nowhere else ... unless you're a sadhu (given up all material possesions, including your big pants!)
Just found this website today looking for somewhere for us to go in caribbean without getting snarled at. Keep up the thong tradition in Goa guys and girls!

Not true Barry, It has been about ten years now but I have worn thongs on beaches in Goa and Kerala as did many other males. Of course I was the only Indian guy but there were MANY Euro guys in thongs and G's. I have not been to those places in a long time and I understand the decline in popularity of thongs for both sexes in this period of time, so this may be the reason for your observation.

I have ben for many years to goa kerala and the east coast. In the 70/80 it was very common to wear 'langote' (la an go ot) which is just a loin cloth with s string attached to it, which you wear like a thong with the front falling over the genitalia.
I have thonged many times in goa though nowadays too many gawkers (ok if u dont care).

Recently my friend nd me went to north goa which is now filled with Russians and thonging and nudity no problem.
Even the smaller hotels take a laid back attitude. I repeatedly swim in the tiniest of thongs of all types.
goa is beautiful

I have it from Indian friends that Goa is still very thong friendly for both men and women. They could not confirm topfree women are tolerated and in fact they doubt that but thong swimwear is not a problem. Anjuna and Colva beaches were highly recommended to me if I ever strayed out there.

Goa and Kerala are the most beautiful places in India they idyllic and carefree. Goa has a rule that no nudity is allowed but except for the more popular beaches like Calungute, and the Anjuna very little is policed.

The best place to go is where there are less people. Go between two villages on the beach.  Most nudists and people who want to wear as little as possible go to the northern beaches like Marjorim and around there.

I have thonged and been nude at quite a few places with my boyfriend on the beach, but only where the population is a little less.

The natives have seen this for such a long time that they do not worry.  Besides Goa is carefree. Kerala is also easy going but a little more conservative. Again follow the same routine -  don't be nude near the hotel beaches but go a little further away and all is allowed. 

Marari beach and other similar ones are great for thonging. There is a beautiful hotel there owned by dominic family. My friend and I thonged on the beach there with no issues. 

I guess people have a phobia all over the world of seeing a penis in public, dont know why?  Despite it being the thing indians worship as as the divine source of enegy.  I hope this helped you.

Thanks Worcester thong. We are really looking forward to going. I will put a report on the board about it when we get back. Yes, wherever you go in the world you have to be a bit sensitive towards local people and customs. There's no need to cause any offence to anyone if by just walking up the beach a few hundred yards more you're more or less alone.

 For many years I have been going to Goa in the winter to Calangute and Anjuna beaches. I have seen many thongs there and tons of topless and nude Europeans. As long as you don't wear your thong in the street (i.e. off the beach) you should be OK.

My wife and stayed in Palolem beach in south Goa and took a long walk to the extremities of the beach. There were women swimming in thongs, but not really men. Except for the very north end and the very south end of the beach. There, guys were tanning in strings. Having said that, we also took a catamaran cruise to watch the dolphins and noticed on uninhabited island that there were young people in the buff. To get there, they rented kayaks. These islands were to the north of Palolem.

hi malaga guy, was driving to goa so tried to find out where cola beach is and lo and behold foundit. a great place but normal cars cant go there as it isin a steep valley and one has to walk down the last half kilometer. going down is okay but climbing is a bitch. lots of indians there ,young, also lots of white people. it appears quite secluded so can b naked or definitely in a thong.as long as the men are not showing their cocks all else is allowed in goa OFFICIALLY- unofficially anything ogoes just b a bit discrete

 Is anyone familiar with the Cochin/Kochi area beaches?  Specifically Cherai beach.  My wife and I are going to be in that area soon and would both like to wear a thong on the beach.  Is it worth the effort to travel to either Goa or south to Kovalam or Varkala or will we be ok in the Cochin area?  
pkthong #21

Re:Places to Thong in India

Date Posted:05/07/2012 09:05:22

  I haven't been to Kerala in 15 years, and I have not stayed in Cochi.
I have been to Kovalam and Varkala both beautiful places and you could thong without much hassel. You would probably want to avoid thonging on a Sunday as a lot of local families come out and will stare at you. Ironically men are less of an issue with minimal swimwear than women because of Indian mores(not saying good or bad just the way it is).
 You would probably be ok in Goa as well, this place(Baga Beach in particular) was the first place I saw guys and gals thonging on the beach together 23 years ago, and have been into thonging since.
 Although Cochi is on the coast, I do not believe it is much of a beach resort kind of place, I could be wrong.

I did visit Thalaserry in northern Kerala once and I think it has more of a beach resort atmosphere in the last few years.
I am visiting India this summer and may make a trip to Thalaserry but nothing concrete.
I am sorry that I don't have any recent experiences but hopefully this helped a little.

Hey Guys im goint to Goa in May 2017. I know nobody has posted anything in 4 years. Is still Goa thong friendly. If It is just to know to pack my thongs. Im a bit worried to get in trouble at a beach for sunbathing in a thong. How is Goa for Male Thongers? Im staying in the Grand Hyatt at Bambolim beach.Any male has experience sunbathing in thongs also at their hotels?

Re:Places to Thong in India

 Makyccs, I would take your thongs and see how things are when you get there.  India, especially Goa is very laid back and you should definitely be able to wear your thongs there. Most of the hotels have private sections of beach where you can tan.  Just go for it.

I thonged in Goa about 3 years ago on a few beaches there. I never had any adverse comments. I chatted to a couple of women on one beach who took my photograph with them. I asked a beach seller what he thought about thongs, he said ' hey, this is Goa, it's ok'. As in other places you should be respectful if local families are around, as a lot of Indians swim fully clothed, as you well know coming from India. Enjoy your trip.
