Can anyone tell me if it's ok for women to sunbathe topless in the Algarve? Say on the main resort beaches and by the pools? I've read differing reports....my girlfriend would like to know...
I went to Albufeira with my boyfriend last year. We stayed in the Montechoro Beach Club in the new part called Praia de Oura.
It's no problem to go topless at the beach, it's not so commen as Spain or Greece, but I think about 30 to 35% of the woman were topless. I went topless from day 1, sunning and swimming, and didn't feel any harm.
At the last day we stayed at he pool and I went topless there. Despite the fact that the Montechoro Beach Club is a quite big hotel only 5 or 6 other girls were topless. So it was no problem to go topless at the pool, but if you don't go topless more often you could feel a bit harm.

noticed that very few of the local women go topless]Would you go topless in your local area?????
But I tend to be discreet about it. I usually swim with my bikini top on, then take it off when I lie down to sunbathe.
And I think it looks awful when men go around in public areas topless. I can't put my finger on exactly why, it just looks offensive. Of course it's fine by the pool or on the beach, but in public streets, in shops and in restaurants? Definitely not.
