I've just come back from the area after scoping it out. It's all a matter of doing abit of searching to find a nice spot or secluded area. You might be fine on one of the barrier islands like Sullivan''s or Isle of Palms. I took lots of pics of the coastguard end of Folly beach. It seems that you can walk quite a ways around the far northern end, or eastern end, whichever way you look at it. there's lots of tall dunes that you walk thru to get to the open beack area overlooking the lighthouse and the dangerous innercoastal waterway surf. the waves arent more than ankle high, but if you wade in to your ankles, you can literally feel the sand washing away from under you and you begin to sink. Kinda scarey but you can atleast sit down or lay down and kool off, I just wouldnt go in more than ankle deep.

I have thonged Folley Beach many times. I usually go to one of the ends. Spent one afternoon nude with thong at my side. It is very nice but you have to watch your back. Once was sitting in my chair with my string on and a 30ish woman with a dog walked by and talked to me for 15 minutes. I think she was envious of me. Nice beach but where are the women thongers ? Are there any stores in Charleston where I can buy another g-string or thong?  I usually buy one while I am out of town.

About 4 years ago, I was near Myrtle Beach trying to get up the nerve to wear skimpy bikinis and thongs.  This was my first week of wearing any of these in public.

I was wearing a lime green string bikini from Prevail Sport.   A young lady, maybe 30, came walking down the beach with a white dog.   Once they got close, the dog came up to me.  I was petting the dog when the lady walked up to me.  She first asked if the dog was mine and I replied that it wasn't and that I actually thought it was her dog.  We talked for 20 to 30 minutes, the entire time she kept looking down at my bikini.  She finally started asking me about it such as if I was nervous wearing it, said that she rarely sees anything like that around there and that she liked it.  She then said it looks very thin and said it must be transparent when it got wet.  I said I wasn't sure because it was the first time I had worn it.    At that time a large group of guys in those long shorts came along; they made several very rude comments.   They girl left, with the dog, and the guys finally did too.  Anyway, I left.

Two or three days later, I went back to nearly the same area.  Before I even got my shorts off, I saw the same lady with her dog (the dog that she acted like wasn't hers).  She came up to me again and asked if I was going for a swim.  I said that I might if the water was nice.  She had a seat in the sand and her dog laid down a few feet from her.   I slipped off my shorts, revealing the same style of bikini but this one was yellow.  She said, "oooh, Yellow, I like those even more".    Then she said, it is a lot warmer today, the water should be great.  A few minutes later, I went into the water for a little while.  I honestly had not checked the material when wet and I had no intentions of "flashing" or anything like that.  I just wanted to wear them for myself.   I did unexpect her interest but did enjoy it.    As I came out of the ocean, she got a huge smile on her face.  I went back to my towel, not far from her.  She just stared.  Finally she said that they were completely see through and that she really like them.   Since then, I've worn the same style, or even their smaller Capri style, but in a little darker color.

alltan64, where exactly were you located on Folly?

And I'd heard that most of the gay's hang out near the Beach Park. I was told that if you go to the beach park head out onto the beach, then head down to the right away from the concessions and lifeguards, you'd run into the area where most of the gays hang out, is this still true?

Not that I have anything against gays, I have quite a few gay friends, both male and female.

As far as I can tell, thongs are legal on Folly Beach.

Its ordinances are at American Legal Publishing Corp.

Here is the only related ordinance I could find:

?133.01 INDECENT EXPOSURE AND DRESS.

(A) Prohibition. No person shall recklessly do any of the following, under circumstances in which his or her conduct is likely to be viewed by and affront others, not members of his or her household:

(1) Expose his or her private parts or engage in masturbation;

(2) Engage in sexual conduct; or

(3) Engage in conduct that to an ordinary observer would appear to be sexual conduct or masturbation.

(B) Exception. The breast-feeding of infants is not an act of indecent exposure.

Oddly enough, this is the same wording as the Ohio State Statute.

I don't know where you got your South Carolina law, but the current law is available
here.

And all it says is

SECTION 16-15-130. Indecent exposure.

It is unlawful for a person to wilfully, maliciously, and indecently expose his person in a public place, on property of others, or to the view of any person on a street or highway.

A person who violates the provisions of this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined in the discretion of the court or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

Well, I don't know what you are talking about. We both cited the same URL,
http://www.scstatehouse.net/code/t16c015.htm, and when I go there it does not contain any of the (A), (B), (C), etc. stuff that you claim is part of the law.

The website itself says that the statutes are current through 2004.

What is your source for claiming that all that extra stuff is the law?

hickersc,

where did she.you 2 go today? What section of the beach?

I remember seeing a male and female on the beach AQug 6th. The was in a g-string and he wore what I think was a pouch thong. They were down in the last section bewtween the groins right before the beach wraps around to the lighthouse. Also one of 2 areas that sea turtles nest. I would have walked up to talk with the couple but my niece was with me.

No, the extra language is not there. Did you hit reload as I said?

I know this for a fact since I talked to the Executive Director of NAC yesterday, and he confirmed that the original language on their site was a mistake and has been corrected. Furthermore, you claim that buttocks are "private parts". Please cite the court case that says so. I've carefully checked all the appeals court decisions of South Carolina and there is no such case. Nor is there one about exposing one's "person", which is what the statute says, not the "private parts" that you referred to.

You can claim all you want that thongs are illegal in South Carolina, but unfortunately the facts are against you. Can you come up with anything at all besides just continually repeating yourself?

Also note carefully that I am talking about state law. Individual cities, like Myrtle Beach have specific ordinances that do ban them, but unless the county has an ordinance against them, they are legal there.

OK kids, here is the conundrum. 
  
The SC law states :SECTION 16-15-130. Indecent exposure. [SC ST SEC 16-15-130]

It is unlawful for a person to wilfully, maliciously, and indecently expose his person in a public place, on property of others, or to the view of any person on a street or highway.

I don't know where ThongloverOBX got his  A,B, C stuff but it's not in that part of the South Carolina code.

Check out    http://www.scstatehouse.net/code/t16c015.htm

I think there may be some confusion because there is a definition in  SECTION 16-15-375. Definitions applicable to Sections 16-15-385 through 16-15-425  (6) "Sexually explicit nudity" means the showing of:  1. (a) uncovered, or less than opaquely covered human genitals, pubic area, or buttocks....

BUT ! This is only about the definition of "Sexually explicit nudity" and only for sections 385 through 425, that have to do with things like child prostitution.   It does not define "indecently" as used in 16-15-130 and it does not apply to 16-15-130, it only applies to 16-15-385 thorough 16-15-425. 

I am not a lawyer and this should not be considered to be legal advice in what ever state, or state of mind, you are in.   But, to be guilty of Indecent exposure, under 16-15-130 it looks like you also need to be wilfully, maliciously, and indecent.  Dressing in a thong covers willful, you decided to wear a thong.  On the other hand watching the state trying to prove malicious intent would be interesting.   Wearing a thong would show that you intended to cover, and therefor protect others from the view of your sexual organs.  Protecting others does not sound very malicious to me.  Reading the SC law it seems that 'Malicious' is used with refrence to doing phisical or financial harm to others. 

Note: I have not found a definition of "indecently expose" in any of the SC definitions so I guess that is up to the case law.  Let me say this again, I am not a lawyer, so don't take my legal advice. 

Having said that about the State Law, there may be county and city regulations that are more rigrous.  For example, Myrtlebeach:  http://www.cityofmyrtlebeach.com/misclaws.html 

 Sec. 14-83. Indecent exposure

(a) It shall be unlawful for any person to intentionally appear in any public place in such a state of dress or undress so as to expose to the view of others the human male or female genitals, pubic area, pubic hair, buttocks, anus, vulva or any portion of the female breast at or below the areola thereof.

(b) Upon determination that any person is in violation of this section, a police officer shall issue a warning to the offending person and afford that person an opportunity to properly cover himself or herself or leave the public place. If the offending person does not immediately and appropriately respond to the warning, he or she shall be charged with a violation of this Code.

When one wears minimal swimwear or clothing in an area where it is not the norm such as SC.  You must assess the risk with the enjoyment and make your own decision.  I have and still wear thongs on Folly and If caught I will cover up like asked or will pay the price.  If you do not or cannot risk it then go somewhere else.  There is no need to debate the law, that is what lawyers do!!!

Quite the contrary, Pawley's Island is too developed with housing right along the beaches and there are plenty of beachcombers that would be "offended" by thongers in such a conservative town.

On the other hand, if you have a chance to get into Debordieu (it's a private gated community south of Pawleys) the southern end of the beach near Hobcaw Barony is completely desolate ... a few miles of beach all to yourself that's good for thonging or nude use. The only way to get into Debordieu is to rent out one of the homes or cottages for a day or two. It's quite pricey, but worth the experience.

Another possibility is Huntington Beach state park which is north of Pawley's Island near Murrel's Inlet. I'm going to be checking this out in early October.

ThongLoverOBX,

 

Folly Island police FDept are the only ones who patrol the beaches. They dont have a 'beach patrol" per say.

I guess it's a case of what alltan64 said.

I have pictures that I've taken that show the layout of both end of Folly beach, the light house end and the beach park end. I did alot of researching in August to find paces for either thongin or nude bathing and what the "beach traffic" scene looked like. How many people wondered by, any beach bikers, or joggers.

If anyone wants more info, PM me. I can email pictures of the lay of the land if needed.

I havent been on the board in a while, but I have a report (a LATE one but still a report) from Folly.

Ran into a couple doing the minimal swim wear thing. He makes his own and she was topless the entire time, but covered her cans when she got up. Then once the beach thinned out, we all headed to the water, her leaving her top behind. He rode a beach cruiser around for a while in just a g-string he had made.

Other than me way out on the lighthouse end of Folly, seeing and hanging out with those 2 I just mentioned, I saw a british chic topless in a thong one afternoon but thats all I saw.

Oh wait, I also had a couple walk all the way to the tip of the island facing the lighthouse. She was in a red top and a white thong. Other than that, I either thonged it where I had to, or went nude (even ealked the beach nude) at the secluded end of Folly.

Best bet: if you have a mountain bike, take it with you. You'll get out to the lighthouse end of Folly quicker.

Hey thonger2005... I went to Folly last year and did some thong bodyboarding. I'm not certain about the legality of wearing thongs on Folly but I've heard people do it with no problems. However the beach can get crowded and a lot of people walk by the surf part of the lighthhouse end. I did walk the beach close to the park (the other end) wearing a thong and a few women passed by with no problems. I prefer to thong along the NC coast but since Folly is closer to me it's nice for a day trip.

 Hey OBX,

nice to hear from you.I ran into a married couple who were wearing some custom (self-made) suits last year. he even went for a bike ride around the last 2 sections of beach between the grions on Folly. The backdrop for that area is the old coast guard station and huge dunes.

I got away with wearing a mesh thong and walking around alittle, and even to the water and back at load tide. Saw another chic topless and from what I heard, she had a British accent.

Now, way out there on the stretch of beach that over looks directly to the lighthouse, I go nude out there the entire time I'm in town. I havent really heard of any legal issues with thongs on Folly. As long as you arent being malicious about it, they'l just keep on goin.

I'm coming back down July 3rd this year and will be down there for 10 days. I plan on thongin again out on the main stretch of the beach, but nude sunbathing and roaming back on the section that overlooks the lighthouse. Might even try to check out Pwly's Island area too and make a jot down to Hunting Island state park again.

 I know nothing about thongs and reaction on Perris Island.

If you want and since you're so close to it, try thongin at the Hunting Island state park beach. I have been there 2 years in a row and havent had an issue. I even walked from my towel to the water and back without an issue, other than 1 lady that kept turning around to look, (after she was past me) but I only stayed about 3 hours. Even went nude for a while because no one was coming down the beach from me.

I also have pix I can share to give you an idea of what the beach looks like in regards to beach stroller traffic.

Does your wife thong with you or is it a solo trip?

Impressive, thonger2005, Hunting Island State Park!  I have been there several times but never thonged because I have seen several places that thongs are illegal everywhere in SC.  Obviously many have been able to thong in isolated places, but I am surprised you had no problems there.  Were there lifeguards around?  Were you near to them?  Did they see you were wearing a thong?  Did you ever walk up and down the beach (or to the restroom, etc.)without putting shorts on?  I am very curious because I will probably be in that area again this summer.

 No, once I got to the farthest parking area )section D I think), I got out and grabbed my stuff and walked out to the beach. Then I headed down the beach to the right and got away from everyone (about a 1/4 mile) until I had a wooded area as the backdrop to the beach. I eas still atleast 1/8 of a mile away from the cabins. There were dead trees still standing and laying down along the back edge of the beach so I used one of them as a "shield" sort of. There wasnt anyone around, even on a hot sunny day and I didnt cover up unless someone was passing by, in which I just sat down in my chair.

One chic did walk by after I had been standing up and she smiled and waved, but didnt come over to talk. She must have came out of one of the cabins because I didnt see her until the last minute, therefore she had to have seen me in a thong. Once she was past me I walked down to the water to cool off. I kept an eye out in both directions the whole time but saw no one coming. As soon as she was a decent distance away I noticed she kept stopping and looking back in my direction, at which point I waited for her to stop again and look back and I made it quite clear I was taking my thong off and I wrapped it around my wrist and got in the water.

I still didnt see anyone heading in my direction and since the nudity issue can really only be an issue if someone says "they saw my genitalia", I felt it wasnt an issue because she was NO WHERE near in the "proximity of being able to make out any sort of genitalia". She was just too far away, but she wasnt THAT far away to know that I was naked. She sat down on one of the first trees I came to and waited for me to leave the water. I left me thong wrapped around my wrist while I headed back to my towel. She eventually headed on her way.

Aside from that, I saw no other thongs at Hunting island beach.

Lifeguards...No, not where I was

I did walk some of the beach but not much as park employees had an all terain vehicle to run up and down the beach.

Ah, as I suspected.  It sounds like you essentially were pretending you were skinny-dipping and acted accordingly.  I hate having to do that, but I understand your position, as SC is one of the most thong-intolerant places I have been.  Huntington Beach does have a lot of secluded areas, but I much prefer farther north in NC where the environment is a good deal better.

Thonger 2005, unless this is a nude beach, you're taking a big chance of getting arrested if the beach staff has an all-terrain vheicle.  Even if you win the case, you will have spent thousands of dollars on legal fees.  It's better to make the effort to get to a nude beach if you want to be on a beach or in the water in the nude.

 ownpool,

you'd have to see the layout of the beach to understand.

the only way to get to where I am is a good 1/2 mile trek. I am at the tip of the island that curves around to my viewing advantage and I have plenty of warning before anyone comes down.

I also dont parade around naked out there either, with a sandbar and boaters about a 1/4 mile away.

 well, it's been a total let down here in Charleston.

I havent seen a single other thong on the beach, and 2 different days I rode the entire 6 miles worth of beach and didnt see anything even close to a thong, mainly out on the ends of the island away from the rest of the crowds and families.

Granted, I know this is in the middle of the Bible belt, but the last 2 years I saw atleast a handful of thongs all week.

The only exception is on my 3rd day down here, a guy did come down in a small (what looked like) a narrow Brazilian cut bikini bottom. Thats as much as I have seen.

BUT..............I'm sure it's always hit or miss.

It seems as though I was the only one on the beach with the least amount of covereage, if any at all (sometimes).

No place on Isle of Palms.  If you walk out towards the marsh side of Folly at the lighthouse end you can thong it or go nude during the week, just make sure to cover up if anyone walks up on you.  But you should easily see anyone walking up on you.

  anything in all caps is what our friends said to me when they got back:



I dont know if I privately spoke with either of yall, but some friends of ours just got back from Folly and had an update for us:

AT HIGH TIDE, THERE IS NO BEACH.....well from our experiences the last few years, there is alittle beach left exposed. the only area I know that there isnt much beach left at high tide is the curve in the beach right next to a huge concrete structure that has been exposed due to beach erosion. Here you will probably be walking thru shin to knee deep waves to get back to yer car. No biggy though if yer not worried about getting alittle wet. you can also run thru the area in between waves.Its not bad at all!

IT ISNT THAT SECLUDED ANYMORE........well it wont be "totally" secluded early in the morning. But it also wont be packed with beach goers either! You will have your occasional beach walker/exerciser/ animal owner come down, but not all of them walk allllll the way to the end of the beach.  Honestly, from what we have seen the last few years, I bet you wouldnt have a dozen people come even remotely near you all day if you are way down at the tip of the island. Most will come to the curve and turn around. its NOTHING like the amount of people who walk the section of beach where the coastguard station and really tall dunes are the backdrop for the beach I (one of the last 2 sections between the groins) In these last 2 sections, you CAN get away with a thong, we have and later in the afternoon (around 4 or 5pm once it dies off) the girls have gone topless and in very slimpy bikinis. We have even stripped down naked and changed right there in the open on the beach!
THERE ARE SIGNS POSTED SAYING THAT YOU CANT USE THE PATHS IN THE WOODED AREAS ANYMORE AND THEY ARE OVERGROWN...... Now, this much I know half about, but the overgrowth I cant be sure of. I saw the signs last year but blew them off and we road our bikes thru the woods to come out at the small cove around the curve in the beach. I do know that if you want to take this shortcut, grab the bug spray (you will be eaten alive by the misquotes) and grab a stick so you dont walk into a small spider web. otherwise follow the trail straight off the pavement and uphill slightly, over the dunes.

NOTE!...if you need a place to rinse off, there are 2 shower heads at the Washout surfing area. (where the road gets very close to the beach and there are no houses between the road and the beach, just big rocks)

 I have uploaded some reference pictures in my profile to give a more accurate description of this area.

if you look in pic 2985, you can see that at some point the water has washed up into the marsh area, but this sand is soft. And it doesnt wash up that far on every high tide.  and in pic 2991, you can see how much warning you have if someone is coming your way. The only thing you have to worry about is the public safety 4 wheel drive golf cart that can make it down the beach kinda quick, but its VERY rare and you still have time to cover up.

 ok  so w eare down here at Folly for a few days, renting a boat for an entire day tomorrow to explore local secluded beached.

Yesterday we hit Folly. The hurricane wasnt too hard on the lighthouse end of Folly, but it ended up closing the beach park at the other end.

We were in very skimpy suits and only saw one other guy out there. We spoke to him and hope to see him again later this week on Folly Beach.

 Ok, now that I have settled back in here in Ohio:

Our last day we spent out at Folly down by one of the new signs saying dangerous currents no swimming or wading. There was a pretty good undertow this whole week but we were careful. did NEED to go get in the water to cool off as there was a nice onshore breeze blowing.

The Folly beach park took a big hit from Irene and is closed for the rest of the year for repairs  but I dont know if they are going to get to a renourishment other than the scheduled one in 2013.

As for heading out to the lighthouse end, I can say that you really need to print out a tides table because we always went down about July 2nd and didnt have any issues with having no beach at hight tide. Plus when hitting the beach about 7:30am or so, the tide wal already half way out and we had a bunch of beach pretty much all day! And by the time we were done, about 3 or 4 pm, the tide was on its way back in.  But since going down last week, the tide was basically out at around 7am and coming back in for high tide at about 12 or 1pm and stayed up til almost 6pm, leaving hardly any beach, so we played the tides when heading out to the far end of the island.

we were able to be risqu'e and nude down past the beach park area because the park was closed. but again, high tide, hardly any beach.
HOWEVER, when we rented the boat and made it up to Dewees and Capers islands, we found that Dewees had quite a bit of beach at high tide, so we spent a great deal of that day roaming ALL over Dewees in the nude, even with boats just offshore fishing.

I will add to this if I think of any other helpful info about this area.

We vacation a few times every year on isle of palms as family members have houses there.  I've worn everything from board shorts to a thong.  I've seen numerous girls in thongs on Isle of Palms both at the very top of the inlet by the Links course, and just a bit south from the beach-club / Grand-pavillion areas (the main vacationer beach by the complex pool and volleyball courts)

Typically, as previously posted, the guys all wear board shorts.  However, there are TONS of Europeans in the last few years and it is totally common to see numerous speedo's or box-cut suits.  But, it is still 95% board shorts. Hopefully, the 5% begins to grow.  The girls are indeed wearing smaller cut back suits these days, to many different extents.  I agree that it is a great trend for all thong-lovers.  The girls in thongs are typically 26-35 years old, where-as somewhere like Miami or Hawaii, the thong girls are basically 18 and up.  Slightly older thong crowd here, I'd call it "experienced" and "self confident." 

I usually wear a shorter board-short type of suit (80% of time) but I often wear my running shorts (10%), a small speedo (5%), and a thong/rio now and then (5%).  When I've thonged, it has just been when the wife and I are hanging out on the beach, either early in day or late, and I typically have it on under a more common suit.  Or, late in the day after a run I may go for a swim in it but leave my running shorts on the sand nearby. 

Usually I have to chase the kids like a mile in every direction so I'll only thong when I'm going to remain in one place with a couple of beers/drinks with the wife.  I've also thrown a thong on when with other couples visiting us and walked around casually between the water and our chairs.  There's always safety in numbers that way and it usually comes via a "dare" from one of their wives.  Turning it into a game makes it easy and acceptable when it may often not be.

Please do note that this is a VERY conservative, family oriented beach scene.  It's not a "party beach."  With that said, I think I like to "mix it up" as well as "protect it."  Being a part time resident, I love the diversity we get but it is a 98% family scene so use your own discretion.  There is nothing wrong with throwing a towel down and laying out in a thong here, guy or girl won't be bothered, but please respect the privacy of the people around you who in many cases pay $2k to $10k a week for this wonderful sliver of sand for their family.  

I hope to see more hot suits in Charleston but please, as always, be respectful.  The people on this board are respectful -- so leading by example is the only way to stop others from giving us a bad name.

Based on my experience, I'd agree with thong4me above. We vacationed at IOP one May and I wore a skimpy bikini at the beach each day while my wife (g/f at the time) wore a brazilian style bikini. We layed out amongst others including families and passers by, no one bothered us at all. I really enjoyed the young college girls in their skimpy suits as well. I don't recall many speedos but we did stick to one area only.

 thonglife, can you define the "skimpy" bikini that you wore?

was it an actual g-string, or thong of some design, or what is a fairly narrow backed bikini bottom? (still covering the crack)

I wouldnt doubt or question that you could get away with it, or it be luck that no one said anything, but having a cousin who works for the IOP public safety department, even he has said skimpy bathing suits are extremely rare, if even non-existent on the more family oriented beaches of Sully's and IOP.

Congrats though!! We actually chose Folly for said activity because of being able to walk the waters edge and the beach without issue. But we also enjoy nude beach sunbathing, so hence the reason we do Folly.

 Nice!!

I can understand people not wanting seriously skimpy/thong/ reveling swimwear on those 2 islands, but I wish there was a place over there for slightly riskier swimwear, somewhere away from the crowds, but the only place I can think of would be the harbor end of Sullivans, but then you have the crowds from Fort Moultrie.

IMHO, the ONLY way is to go down after the tourist season. My cousin says the patrols leave people alone more in the off season.

Another place where you MIGHT find skimpier wear would be Cummings Point, but its only assessable by boat, its on the harbor tip of Morris island. That is a heavy party location, so ya may see something there, but again...gotta get a boat first.

Back in Sept, we actually rented a boat and ctuised the harbor, and the intercoastal and heaqded up to Capers and Dewees island. Dewees was sweet! totally deserted other than the boats anchored between the islands. Capers was nice, but we had limited time since the tide was coming in.

We did see some thongs between the islands, and a couple of topless women walking towards us until thery slipped their tops on when we got near them, but once they saw what we were wearing, off the came within about 20 feet behind us.

Got loads of info about renting a boat and heading up to these 2 islands.

will definitely be doing it again!

Was there over memorial day week 2012 with my entire family and it was great weather.  Again, I stuck to my common plan when on the isle of palms which is chase my kids around in trunks or short running shorts.  Wore a black joe Snyder thong a few times under lacrosse shorts when just laying out on a towel.  I swam early am in a rio cut 'speedo' after a run on the beach, but other than the walk to and from the water I didn't really hang out in it.
Other than my wife who wears pretty skimpy rio bottoms, there was only one legit g-string/thong girl all week.  However, I did see tons of small rio cut suits on the ladies which was nice.  All the girls seem to be moving towrds the 'cheeky' tiny bikini bottoms that are 'almost' thongs.  If the trend continues, the next step has to be a thong, right?  Let's hope.
Either way, the beach was not as busy as I have seen during other memorial day weeks, but looking forward to August for some hopeful thronging and lounging around on this great beach.
PS: I bike a lot and when going over the bridge at 'breach inlet' on palm blvd., I saw a setup of guys and girls where 4 guys in board shorts, and all 4 girls in a thong.  I almost crashed my bike!   Great sign though!!   Even though this spot it is illegal to go in the water due to severe rip currents.

 something I found on the post and courier website regarding "thongs on Folly beach".

Granted this dates back to 2004 but:

The man who once said "The buttocks showing is not proper" will reluctantly admit there aren't any specific laws against wearing thongs, "butt" he'd rather if people didn't.The bottom line is: "As long as they're not up parading around, it's OK," he said.As far as Isle of Palms and Sullivan's Island go, the rules are fairly similar."We do have a clause where people can't have any of their private parts showing," said Mauldin about the Isle of Palms' stance on indecent exposure."The police will go out and tell them to put clothes on and if they don't, they'll be ticketed just like anybody else," she said.

We just may have to hit IOP and Sullivans this summer. Working on something for August.  on Sully's, we will possably be down by Fort Moultrie.

We are staying at one of my relative's houses who has recently been put in an assisted living and her kids are figuring out her home. Then we are shifting to a Condo just off the island.

We need this vacation! We are planning on our usual suits out on the beach down by the old coast guard station and along the long stretch of beach overlooking the lighthouse. (see my folly beach layout photo in my profile) Its a google earth picture with markers pointing out specific areas.

Let me know when you get down here thonger...

Was out by the Morris Island lighthouse at Folly today. One guy was in a thong my himself way at the end. I walked all the way down and when I walked back past him he was nude.

A couple was there at the middle of the beach. I said hello and set up a few yards down from them. They were probably in their 50s and the woman was topless and in a g-string when I greeted them and the man was in a sarong. I walked around in my speedo for a little while and eventually they got completely naked when they realized I was comfortable with it. I got completely naked too. I wish I had interacted with them more but wasn't sure if they wanted privacy or not. Anyway it was very fun being completely naked with the other couple just down the beach. She waved goodbye to me as they left. I will go down there again tomorrow and try to interact with them more....

There are areas where there is NO beach at high tide, but whats IS nice is, at high tide if you get around the curve in the beach, no one wonderes out there and you have the entire place to yourself, except for a stray boater.

I walked nude from the curve all the way to the tip of the beach with only 1 boater across the waterway anchored on Morris island.

headed back and spent some nude and thong/topless time in the last section of beach before the seawall.

Great time so far! But yeah...beach is seriously eroded!

 ok so I uploaded just a couple of pictures in my "Folly layout" folder in my pix. I have lots of videos but I need to convert them so I can email them to someone.

The beach is pretty washd away. SOME places to use when the tide is fully up and the great thing is at high tide, no one comes around the curve in the beach that I have included in explaining where to go on Folly for nude and thongin.

Today we did the beach park end of Folly and since the tourist season is done and Labor day is out of the way, its pretty dead around here! We spent 100% of today in the nude down at the far end of the beach park area. nearest person on both sides was like 150 yards away. just a few beach walkers but no problems.

Saw the public safety cart come out one day and took someone away, seems there was an issue with her vehicle or something. we ran into a few people fishing out overlooking the light house and they all said.....they fish ALOT out there and have NEVER seen the safety patrol come down to the light house end of the island unless there is a problem.

We also managed to thong and go topless on Sulivans island yesterday starting at Station 17, but walking down the beach to where the Morris island light house was straight out in front of us. Cant exactly pinpoint where we were but no one was near us for atleast 300 yards. I didnt chance walking around naked but I did take my thong off and stayed in my chair.

Look in my profile at my pix and look for a folder called "folly layout". Its a Google Earth shot of Folly beach with pinpointed specific areas for thong, topless or nude.

We have ben all 3 the last 2 weeks and didnt run into a single problem! well except the damn flies that sxwarmed us down at the beach park area yesterday, forcing us to relocate to the other end f folly near the sea wall. (see the photo, or send me a PM and I will get you more specific info.)

Re:Charleston and Folley Beach, SC - USA

 well if you know where folly beach is, head out there and make your way down the main drag (center Street) to east ashley ave. turn left at the only light on the island.
follow that all the way out past the Washout where everyone surfs, until you reach a dead end. Find a place to park and walk thru the big gate and follow the road where you might see other people walking. this road leads you out to the old coast guard station and out to view the Morris Island lighthouse. You will see the remnants of the building foundations that have graffiti on them, go past those until the pavement slowly becomes sand.
once yer out on the beach and can see the LH (light house) and a rock jetti, turn to your left and continue to follow the beach around the curve. Right before the curve you will see a decent sized ‘cove”/beachy area and not far from that some huge cement structure with grafitti on it also. once you are around the curve, you'll see a really long stretch of uninhabited beach. this is where we thong and go nude, and have even had sex in the middle of the day during the week because everyone is at work.
if you head all the way out to the tip of the island, you will have TONS of warning if anyone heads in your direction. Even with binoculars, they couldnt tell what you are, or are not wearing. The only thing I do is cover up if i am nude when a boat goes by, making their way out to the sandbar around the lighthouse That sandbar varies from year to year. This year its about 75 yard off the secluded section of beach, but if you walk down that stretch of beach, you get away from the anchored boats. I have even walked naked along the waters edge about 11am and carried a pair of see thru shorts balled up in my hand.
Now, the OTHER end of Folly is the beach park area. You can pay the $8 and park in the parking lot, and head out to the beach, turn and walk away from the lifeguard chairs and it will become more deserted the further you walk. This area was hit VERY hard in 2011 by TS Irene and the sand from the parking lot and dunes washed back into the marsh area. (see my pictures in the Folly layout folder) Again, wide open beach facing back towards the parking lot and plenty of warning. The picture pf thr coast guard gate is abit small but it gives you an idea. It has 2 blue garbage cans in it. The trail to the main stretch of beach is in the right center of the picture. Then the gate…well that’s obvious, right in the middle of the picture.
Regarding the coast guard area:
If you park near the coastguard gate, you will see 2 beach houses up in the air quite a ways out towards the water with a small parking area next to them. Look to your left alittle and you will see the small trail I showed you in the picyre.  if you walk out to the beach and turn left,. you'll start seeing groins in the sand leading out to the surf. the best areas for thongs and even topless are the last 2 sections of this main stretch of Folly beach. The backdrop for this are is tall dunes and the old coast guard station. You have plenty of warning in both directions, but not as much as you would on the first section of beach that I mentioned.
If you have the means, you can access this area alot easier on a mountain bike or beach cruiser. The other nice thing is, if you see that an afternoon rain or thunderstorm is coming thru (notorious for charleston in the summer) keep in mind that rain will run everyone off the beach! If you have the means, and monitor the weather. Once the rain passes or you see that it's only rain and not a storm, you'll have a good 2 hours to go nude almost ANYwhere on the beach! I have taken a beach umbrella with me on my mountain bike and see that its only rain, I head back towards the curve in the beach and hang out in the trees under the umbrella until the rain passes (if its a good downpour). A few times, I was hit with a small passing rain that cleared the beach and got in a nude bike ride along the coastguard section of the main drag, and around to the tip of the island overlooking the lighthouse.

Does anyone know the thong status on "Isle of Palms"?  I'm being asked to take a trip with a friend.

Looking at Google Maps' satellite view, it appears that the coastal side is about two miles, mostly houses with beach access pathways (one of those is the supposed target of where I might be staying).  I also see a few shops, a county park, a resort, and perhaps a few apartment/condo complexes.

Anyone ever been on the beach in the area?

 I would shy away from IOP unless its off season, like now or Oct/ Nov.

If you want thong ability, just go to Folly. See my husbands directions above. Somewhere in his pictures you will also find a Google Earth pic thats labeled for thonging and topless of Folly.

IOP is way too family oriented as is Sully's (Sullivans island). A few have said they thonged on Sully's but we choose not to chance it unless we can get alittle ways away from people and we wouldnt parade around or do much out of our chairs on the beach.
