Looking for cooler climate than FLA ... been spoiled by Canaveral National Seashore all these decades. Had my 'nude' years surf fishing but like my thong triangle tanline's .... my brain feel's its more Kinky :) Took road trip up to Carolina's (Wilmington area) two weeks ago. Compared to Florida beach access/parking seemed so finite & the beach development is eyesore. Assume more options if i owned a boat for thong wear. Appreciate any semi remote beaches & state parks which are thong friendly !

Try Bird Island near Sunset Beach.  It is @a 2 mile walk or bike ride from the 40th cross over to the west.  T&T is legal on the reserve. (At least on the NC section of the reserve.

 I have found the North Carolina Cape Hatteras seashore beaches to be very thong tolerant. Several good places are on Pea Island just over the Bonner Bridge.  Further down there are beaches before,  at,  and after the Cape Hatteras lighthouse. 
On several occasions I have talked to the lifeguards at the beach right at the lighthouse and asked about thongs. I always got a positive answer. In fact they even confirmed that top free was permitted there.  

While I have worn thongs at all these beaches, I found that I saw the most thongs, top free and even nude beachgoers on Ocracoke Island. 

At the lifeguarded beach, I do walk south of the highly populated beach, but not too far, usually just in front of the lighthouse. From that point I can set up not too close to anyone and walk up and down the beach in my thong along with all the other beach walkers. I try and show that wearing a thong is perfectly normal and always smile and speak to people I pass.  

At Canadian Hole, just before the lighthouse on the sound side, I have worn thongs to shower off with no problems. I would like to see more thongs on the beach there.

The only beach you can’t wear a thong at in NC is Kure beach, as they have an ordinance specifically prohibiting them.

Anywhere on the outer banks is fine, but you’ll probably see WAY more girls than guys wearing them. Don’t let that stop you though-I have worn a thong on all of the nc beaches from Corolla through hatteras with no problems at all. I am able to walk the beaches freely, and talk to others on many occasions. 

The main thing to remember is to maintain a confident attitude and not be weird about anything you do. Your thong is simply a bathing suit. Don’t get in the mindset that it gives you any right to say or do anything you wouldn’t otherwise! Have fun and let me know if you ever find yourself up here!

Masonboro Island just north of Carolina beach is an option too.  Miles of uninhabited beach, but need to access only by boat or kayak.

Sunset Beach in NC also has an ordinance against thong swimwear. However, Bird Island (next to Sunset) is state land so thongs & g-strings are legal.

 Hey Lindros, Are you gonna come back to NC? Just to reiterate, Sunset Beach has an ordinance against thongs, however, the new cheeky style suits I've seen the girls wearing is going to make enforcement difficult.  Anyway cabanas and tents seem to be more of an issue for the town council to deal with.

Since i was 23 i've either been nude or just about nude in Canaveral National Seashore, South Fla 1994-99, and Santa Barbara 1989-94. Almost hassle free experience. Cool thing about California was the 'marine layer/fog' during Summer months. I would go nude hiking in the mountains behind Santa Barbara. It was awesome the overcast conditions. According to nofashionpolice site its legal to wear thongs in State parks in Georgia, North & South Carolina. Apparently allowed to hike nude in National Parks & Forests as well --- in less traveled areas. Thanks everyone for your input.

 TBACK59  On the Island you need to be in the coastal reserve.   From the 40th crossover it is @1/2 mile WEST   (towards the rock jetty & South Carolina) There is a fairly large sign that says Coastal Reserve next to a smaller sign that says to keep off the dunes.  West beyond this point towards the Kindred Spirit mailbox and past is the coastal reserve.  There used to be an inlet there called the Mad River Inlet that filled in in the early 90's but is still shown on many maps.  Hope this helps.  I plan to be out there this weekend.Lester

I've posted about my experiences and knowledge before on here in regards to NC beaches and wearing thongs but thought I might add my two cents to this post. NC State Parks are tolerant of thong and g-string wearing as long as they are not lude ie. sheer, see-through or expose to much of you know what. There are multiple state park beaches were I thong without issue from rangers. Fort Macon, Fort Fisher, Hammocks Beach and inland at Jordan Lake and Falls Lake. 
As with any location, you just have to be weary of families and conservative folks who might be upset. With the popularity of thongs and cheeky swimwear for women now being mainstream, I have seen many more females wearing thongs this spring and last year at our beaches.  

My experience is the same for most of the Outer Banks. I have thonged or stringed in Nags Head, Hatteras, Ocracoke many times. And Wrightsville Beach is a voyuers dream. It's often packed with girls in skimpy bun baring suits. I have thonged there in recent years in the middle of a crowded beach. I don't walk around like I do in Florida but I will lay out in a chair or on a towel with just a thong - no issues. 

To my knowledge, Kure Beach is the only beach with ordinances against thongs, but they are welcome in Carolina Beach to the north and Fort Fisher to the south.

 Thonglife,Sunset Beach has ordinances against topless and thongs, but walk @ 1/2 mile west past the 40th street crossover and you are on the Bird Island Coastal Reserve which is marked by a big sign on the dune line.  Once past that, you are on STATE property.   I would go a little further past the sign, just because of the all the families that tend to set up at 40th.  I have noted that there a lot more thong/cheeky suits on young girls on the Sunset Beach proper, than on the reserve.

Thanks Marty for the info. I have known about Bird Island for at least a decade but never seem to find the time to make it down that way or to Sunset Beach. I will make the effort this summer hopefully.

Can anyone here explain or summarize the rules in South Carolina concerning the wearing thong swimwear in public? Thanks.

Thongs are legal under SC state law.

HOWEVER #1... there are a number of coastal cities that have local ordinances which prohibit them (eg., Myrtle Beach, Surfside Beach, etc...). I have worn g-strings at Huntington Beach State Park (20 minutes south of Myrtle) with no issues and I checked with the Park Ranger who checked with the Georgetown police.

HOWEVER #2 ... South Carolina is in the heart of the Bible Belt and if you do find a coastal city where they are not prohibited you may get encounter intolerant folks, rednecks & drunks, and you certainly won't encounter others wearing minimal swimwear.

If you live in the Northeastern part of SC, then it's better to drive 30-40 minutes to Bird Island just over the SC/NC border. G-strings are totally legal here and you'll find others here either in skimpy swimwear or nude.

I went to Ft. Fisher and Ft. Macon several times last summer with no problems. They are legal there. Ft. Fisher is my favorite. I get the drive permit and park down by the marsh and fish in my g or thong until the tide goes out. After that it's mudsliding/ mudbath time, sometimes nude. Now, that's fun.

I was walking down the boardwalk in downtown Myrtle Beach Sunday afternoon and two ladies were walking towards me in fairly skimpy bikinis. After they passed by me I turned around and much to my surprise they were both wearing thong bottoms!! Didn't notice any police near by so guess they got away with it, but also surprisingly is nobody really seemed to care. Maybe folks are becoming less stuffy in Myrtle. Wonder how much the local ordinance is really enforced. Supposedly the officer can simply give them a warning at first.

It still is against they law in Myrtle Beach , but if you are a guy and see a babe in a thong are you going to call the law? Nope. If you are a fit women in a bikini and see the same babe in a thong you will wish you had the guts to be her.  It is the out of shape women that bitch about the fine babes in the slender suits that gives them the bad press.

Yesterday I saw a girl walking in what I’d call a thong on Bird Island to the jetty and back I did not see any kind of coverup, so unless they had set up just at the town limits, I’m going to assume they started off in Sunset Beach. I also saw a different girl from the 40th crossover looking back towards the pier in what I’d call a thong. She was definitely on the Sunset Beach strand. If you visit and park on the street, make absolutely sure your tires are completely off the pavement. I saw several cars with tickets between 32nd and 40th.

I have thonged in the Atlantic Beach and Emerald Isle area many times. Most of the time there was no problem. Only issue came on 4th of July weekend, when I walked past a large unruly crowd of drunks. I should have turned around as soon as the first one started "hootin' and hollerin'", but had just started my walk, so I kept on going. Sure enough, 10 or 15 minutes later a ranger appeared on an ATV. He acknowledged I was legal, but said he had received several complaints, so he asked me very nicely to be more "discrete". When I told him what was going on, he even offered to drive me back to my hotel. I declined, but went in the water for a long swim to successfully bypass the obnoxious group on the way back. No further problems all week long.

I can tell you that is long as you are discrete you can go nude down in the general area of where the rest of us on here nude sunbathe at Bird Island. If you make it to the kindred spirits mailbox, anywhere between the mailbox in the rock jetty, preferably a little closer to the mailbox you could go full nude and even walk around a little bit between sets of people walking down the beach. It is hit-or-miss with foot traffic at Bird Island. Sometimes you may have 10 or 15 minutes worth of no one close enough but sometimes you have an hour. At high tide it tends to thin out a good bit. I just spent  2 days at Bird Island last weekend and both days were absolutely wonderful. Saturday was a little busier with foot traffic though.

Now let me  address the South Carolina area. I can tell you that thongs are tolerated out on folly beach outside of Charleston. I have seen women in a thongs directly behind the Tides hotel at the end of Center street which is the absolute main area for families. I have also seen  thongs on the Eastern end of the island overlooking the Morris island lighthouse and lighthouse inlet. There are some of us down here that also nude sunbathe at that end of the island but we do it discreetly, we are not lewd about it . There are some of us that are able to walk around a little bit out there provided there are not a lot of boats anchored on the sandbar or over on Morris island. You also have to watch out for tourist boats that come out. You cannot miss them with binoculars, they have safety railing all the way around the front end of the boat and will usually be carrying anywhere from 4 to 10 people. The section of folly that overlooks the lighthouse is virtually a 1/2 mile long Crescent shaped beach that is angled just right to where you have plenty of warning when anyone is walking towards you. Same thing goes with Bird Island. Bird Island is a very straight beach and you have plenty of warning in both directions. I have been thong and nude sunbathing on the lighthouse end of folly since the late nineties and have not had any problems. Patrol does not come out there unless they have a call of some kind. Even then, patrol does not have the element of surprise out on folly just like they really don't have the element of surprise at Bird Island you can see them coming from a long distance and both directions. When you walk out to the beach and you start looking at the Morris island lighthouse hit the beach and turn left and walk towards a very large concrete structure covered in graffiti. Oncs you get past that structure the beach bends to the left and at the end of those tree line you can see the very long stretch of beach where everyone lays out. As for thongs out there, I have actually seen women in songs all the way back where a lot of people do their surf fishing and around the concrete structure. Someone once told me that patrol obviously knows that we lay out on that end of folly but we feel that they just look the other way because they know we are well away from the main crowds on the beach and we're not doing anything improper. I have not taken the chance to do any thonging at Huntington Beach state park or the Myrtle Beach state park. I have been down to hunting island outside a Beaufort South Carolina and carefully gone nude and worn thongs down there with no problems. I have also nude sunbathe and worn thongs on botany Bay beach on the way out to Edisto beach.

Just had another thought. As long as there's not a lot  Of foot traffic on edisto each, you can go out to the beach and turn left and maybe a ride a bike down and get away from the rest of the crowds and carefully thong or nude sunbathe  the but be able to cover up quickly because some people drive by in golf carts. I've only done it a couple times. Botany Bay  you have to play by the tides because the beach is completely inacessible 2 hours Before & After high time since hurricane Irma. There is absolutely no beach left at high tide and you would have to be climbing in the trees to even get out of the water during high tide so they  close the beaches 2 hours before high tide and in is still closed 2 hours after high tide. Botany Bay opens at 6:00 a.m. daily and I have actually been awake that early and taken my bike out to botany Bay and gotten in a nude bike ride along the beach to the left away from the boneyard of trees before a lot of people started showing up. An hour or so later by the time I headed back to my car because of the incoming tide, there were some people starting to show up.

There are currently a *ridiculous* number of thongs and trendy underboob bikinis at North Myrtle Beach. Both are obviously illegal, but the young college students don't seem to know. https://www.instagram.com/explore/locations/223629351/north-myrtle-beach-south-carolina/
