Dress Code and Island Etiquette


Although the dress code is informal, we do ask that brief attire not be worn when visiting town or villages. Nude or topless sunbathing will cause offence. A light sweater may come in handy for the cooler evenings during July and August.


During the day it is also appropriate to wear the pareu, a brightly coloured piece of material worn as a wrap around by both men and women. Similar materials are available in skirts, dresses and aloha shirts. Smart casual clothing is the norm when eating out.
