Outer Banks – Swim Brief and Thong Friendly

In my “Beaches to Go” section, I decided to start with the Outer Banks, since it is the first place I wore my swim bikini brief in public. You can read about it here. With miles and miles of coastline, the Outer Banks (OBX) is an ideal place for us guys to wear a swim brief or even a thong. At least from my research it is legal to wear a thong there. I didn’t notice any guys in bikinis or thongs, so you still may be the only one sporting one.

You can choose from hustle and bustle beaches to fairly sparsely populated beaches. Personally I like it away from the action. The most populated and busiest area with things other than the beach to do is from about Kitty Hawk down to Whalesbone and then on Roanoke Island and Manteo. Then heading up to the northern part of the Outer Banks into Southern Shores, Duck, and Coralla, you’ll be into a lot of the rental properties. The beaches in this area aren’t quite as crowd, but still pretty populated. Also there are some shopping areas up this direction too.

Now if you really want less crowds, then you need to start heading south into the Cape Hatteras National Seashore and Ocracoke Island. This is the less developed area of the Outer Banks and is the perfect place for enjoying the beach in less than trunks without any worries of other people bothering you. You’ll see parking areas along the way as you drive south with access to the beach. Once you find one you like, you can always head away from the beach entrance to get even more privacy.

In review, I would say you can wear your swim brief anywhere at the Outer Banks, but if you want less crowds and less chance of inconsiderate people then head North or South of the main drag. Best bet for wearing thongs is to head South into the National Seashore where you can get away from the crowds. Let me know your experience at the Outer Banks.
