This Beach Has Everything for a Cruise Wedding
White sand, a dock, shade trees, coconut palms, cabanas, a rest-room, and its always in pristine condition thanks to the government's beach cleaning programme.
Just a short taxi or bus ride to the district of West Bay, this quiet beach is a favourite for small cruise weddings. It is spectacular at sunset, as you can see from the photo above. Far from beaches that can get crowded, especially on cruise-ship days, this beach is a quiet oasis on the north-west tip of Seven Mile Beach, and right across the street from our office, which makes it a favourite of mine. It is one of our public beaches, which means there is no charge to use it. Most cruise weddings I do take place between 10am -11am, which means I get you back to George Town with lots of time to explore our capital city, and get some retail therapy!
West Bay is also home to Hell, and Boatswains Beach aka The Turtle Farm. Many people have dinner at one of the popular West Bay restaurants such as Pappagallo, or Calypso Grill. Or if you're on a cruise and want a quick lunch after your wedding, Alfresco Restaurant's patio overlooks this part of Seven Mile Beach.
