  • Yes you can go. You will be fine. Bring lots of water with you and don't lay out for hours at a time. Make sure to get in the water to cool your body down and use sunscreen. If your wearing a bikini then avoid to much sun on your stomach but you can tan for a little bit. You just don't want to over heat or allow the sun to beat down on your stomach for hours on end.
