You can stay on the local Island beaches and even snorkel from the shores. On local islands, bikinis aren't really worn, nor do men walk around with only shorts. Living among the local Muslim population you generally wouldn't strut around half-naked as you would in a resort village. This is all part of the experience and shouldn't be seen as a drawback - there is plenty of opportunity to soak up the sun and pose for those fantastic holiday beachwear photos on the uninhabited islands.
The island council will also permit a special area in the beach for tourists where they can freely swim in bikini..
In local islands following dress are minimum requirements:-
Men : T-Shirt and shorts
Women: T-Shirt, blouse, Shirt and skirt or shorts which hides down to ankle.
In uninhabited islands however , tourists are free to wear bikinis and all types of swimwear.
