Hi there,
Coming to Barbati in a weeks time and just wondering if it is OK to sunbathe topless on the beach. I have pierced nipples an a lot of tattoos which didn't seem to go down to well in Turkey. I hope this is not the case in Corfu, Any advice would be lovely. Caroline.

Thank you for your enquiry.

Of course Turkey is not the same as Greece just as Barbati is not the same as Kavos but from my limited experience of Greek attitudes to such things (no personal experience of pierced nipples however, although I take my hat off to you as it must be fairly painful I imagine) I think you'll be fine.

Perhaps if you post up some images myself and the other forum members may be better able to advise you.

Have seen topless women and men (lol) on many beaches in Corfu so you should be fine.

You might want to see if there are a lot of families with kids on the beach, or if it's a bit more out of the way.  But like the others have said, it's not unusual to see a few people sunbathing topless.

It shouldn't be a hassle at all as long as you are sensitive to who is around you. My bug bare is men in tavernas without shirts so maybe I'm not the one to reply to your post. LOL
I can close my eyes and see Paleo but it's not the same.........Roll on my next trip.

I would make sure there re no Greek families or older Greeks near you on the beach

The Greeks are very tolerant but also very conservative and so long as you do not cause offence  you will be fine but some of the older population may be offended

Find yourself a secluded spot among some rocks and enjoy yourself!!

Good for you. I hope to be topless in various resorts along the east side in a couple of weeks. I hope the weather is good. Can't wait to be back.
