I live in Ireland and most Irish people holiday in europe .
I am planning to go to Spain in holidays and it is impossible to find a beach that is not “top optional”
I have been to Spanish beaches on many holidays and most people are quite discrete and do not draw attention to themselves. They are simply trying to get a suntan.
While on holidays last year with my two teenage boys I simply sat in an area with the least amount of temptation and did not draw any attention to any topless sunbathing.
In Europe this is part of their culture and the Irish who travel abroad tend not to take too much notice.
My question is am I doing enough by trying to handle the situation discretely or is it necessary to avoid a beach family holiday.
I can’t afford to travel to the US and all European beaches are the same.
