Tips

  • Beware of strays. A lot of West Bay residents will keep guard dogs in their yards, they're harmless but might give you a bit of a fright.
  • Go on a Monday evening and indulge in the BBQ at Macabucca
  • Watch out for cyclists, there's a lot of them in this district.
  • You'll notice a strong West Bay accent different from the rest of the island, take it in and try a West Bay accent yourself, just swap out your v's for w's.
