    It's all about respect - PDA of a kiss or a hug is something I would do in front of my kids. I think Couples is trying to avoid the hedonism effect -

    I'm simply amazed at all these comments because I guess we've broken all the rules - never been reprimanded and never heard any other guests complain or judge.

    As far as being alone on the AN beach - the AN guests patrol themselves very well and if one guest "sticks out" being alone and never having been on the beach with their partner it does create a situation where management should be notified. I go to the beach alone every morning because my husband exercises or stays on the balcony and reads. I've seen several men who are alone - their spouses are in the spa or on the shopping trip - Sometimes their are women alone, their husbands went diving- No Problem Mon.

    For those of you considering AN, you will be amazed how much more social it is on the AN side -

    I've gone topless on the main beach and felt like I was being gawked at the whole time. A guy on the bus to the airport even took the time to tell me how much he enjoyed watching me - ick

    All's I can say its being neked is more comfortable than being topless - go figure.
    ... it keepsh me shane

    I think this is ridiculous if you pay to be at this resort then you should be allowed to do the same as everyone else, if that means being on the nude beach alone then thats that. As for gawkers if you don't want people looking at you then don't take your close off it is just natural for people to look. I think you all need to lighten up your all adults and it is a nude beach. As for pdi's again everyone is an adult and when the drinks start flying some things just happen, getting told to leave the resort is a little over the top I think maybe giving a warning might be the best thing to do. My wife and I have been going to couple resorts for awhile now and never seen anything that would make us complain other then our last trip which was the service that needed complaining about.

    My SO is an early riser and I don't want him to have wait around for me if he wants to go the island and I will join him later. Is that acceptable? He has been to AN beaches before I met him and knows the etiquette.

    Just remember that the Island doesn't open at sunrise so it may not be as big of an issue as you think.

    To answer your question, I don't think they will allow a man on the shuttle boat without his SO. They don't distinguish between the seasoned veteran and the gawker.

    Maybe once I go with him the first time in the afternoon, we can explain that he wants to go in the am and will show up later afternoon? I work afternoons at home so I am on a late schedule, hard to change for vacation.

    I have been on the boat by myself, but I left my wife on the island, went and got lunch at the Veggie Bar, and then came back to the island. They had no problem with that. My wife did the similar thing going a class for an hour (water aerobics IIRC) and left me on the island.

    I wanted to chime in here, as it will be our first time to CTI next year and we are very curious about the island. My husband loves to scuba, but I can't stand to have my face in the water so I'll be staying on the beach.

    It sounds like if I want to go AN while he's gone the two hours, I won't be welcome even though I just plan on spending quality time with my eReader and working on my tan. I promise not to gawk and take pictures! That being said, if those are the rules, I won't push them because it's all about respect to the resort policy and the other guests.

    I 100% agree that if there are rules against solo visitors and PDA, the rules should apply to both genders equally. It's just a shame a few bad apples requires a blanket rule when most people seem to behave appropriately. I just hope to add my perspective if it helps with clarifying/updating the policy.


    P.S. It's the first time our privates will see sunlight. How do you protect it from the sun? I just can't imagine sunscreen is enough for those sensitive bits.

    AmynWes, Some couples separate from their SO for a little while to take classes, go back to the room or whatever. As long as long as your spouse returns in a reasonable time you should be fine. Two hours does seem like a long time to be gone, so why not wait the two hours he is gone at the end of the pier, topless... at least you will be halfway there.

    Put sunscreen on in your room before you go out in the sun. Use a regular waterproof 30 spf and apply often, you should have no problems. Use a lip balm with a sun block and apply often because it wears off from all the water/cocktails you will be drinking. I think we're so concerned about our private parts that we forget the feet, shoulders and chest... and I think your more likely to get a burn there.

    Go early and have fun!
