The Ultimate in Beach Wedding - By Romantic Sailboat
This beach is at the bottom of a huge cliff and requires the hire of a boat to get to - we use a sailboat. The wedding beach is on the stunning coast of Maratea - 30 minute sail from the historic fishing port of Porto di Maratea. Scroll down for details.

This is a new beach venue - it is very similar to the Sapri wedding beach, so we have re-used a few photos of actual ceremonies. It sits at the bottom of high cliffs in the Coast of Maratea (one of the most beautiful coasts in Europe) just outside of the iconic fishing villa of Porto di Maratea. The romance and drama of the beach is only equaled by the romance and drama of the boat trip to the beach.
The Maratea Wedding Beach can ONLY be reached by boat (see below for costs) by way of a dingy.
From July through August it is difficult to find a completely deserted beach. We do not guarantee any beach at any time being deserted - although off season, it is highly likely.
The CofE Minister can conduct ceremonies in any beach on this web site.
Wedding ceremonies are standing only
Please bring appropriate footwear for a beach wedding

Maximum number allowed on the boat is 20.
