Is it ok to wear bikinis on the beaches? I’ve noticed on you tube people seem to be fully clothed?

In my experience, most women wear Bikini's. However, Topless is frowned upon.

A lot of woman feel uncomfortable wearing a bikini on Goa beaches. This is because of the frequent photography and video being taken by males who are quite intrusive and blatant even when challenged not to do it.

So be aware it can be very intimidating, if you are sensitive.

what JimboF4 has mentioned is true but mainly valid for Calangute-Baga beach which receives worst domestic male crowd...There are dozens of beaches which have decent domestic crowd where even Indian ladies wear bikinis nowadays.

Some of the beaches in north most part of Goa tend to attract less domestic crowd. Women are more comfortable on those beaches to wear bikinis..
