The truth is Jamaica, like most other top travel destinations, have persons who are strongly in opposition to the practice, persons who don't mind, as well as those who strongly support the activity (for varying reasons)!
Generally though, I find that those who are in opposition to nude in Jamaica are dormant.
We had only one exception to this fact when, back in February 2001, the Jamaican government attacked a tourist resort's plans to hold nude weddings on Valentines Day as "improper and offensive."
Eight couples were set to exchange vows at Hedonism III - an offshoot of Hedonism II- a resort famous for its wild ways.
The statement from the tourist board stated that "The board does not encourage any activity which would offend the Jamaican people"...."such a portrayal of the country is contrary to the image that we consider appropriate".
But despite this disapproval, the tourist board had no power to intervene in the matter. That was the only issue I can remember.
Just to let you know, Jamaicans, in general, are still highly conservative and therefore are not too excited about nude-certainly, not in Jamaica.
Most of the nudity here happens within the the confines of the resort or hotel beaches. It is worth mentioning therefore that it is certainly not safe to ward off on a public beach in your nude- for those who may easily get carried away.
I worked at one such resort in Jamaica and nudity was a natural part of the operation, except of course, that it was confined to a particular section of the resort.
The following are some of Jamaica's most popular nude beaches and clothing-optional resorts- thanks to Susan Breslow Sardone.
