It is now legal for women and men to be topless at beaches on the popular vacation island of Nantucket, off the coast of Massachusetts.

Nantucket, a 105-square-mile island off of Cape Cod, is one of the best known summer travel destinations in US.

Earlier this year, a local-led "Gender Equality on Beaches" campaign proposed a bylaw amendment that would make it legal for anyone of any gender to go nude from the waist up while on a beach on the island.

Under the previous law, women could be fined $300 and faced a penalty of up to three years in prison if caught topless on the island.

Public nudity, specifically at beaches, remains up for debate in many parts of the United States.
