Call of the Conch

September 23, 2015

This October, Andros celebrates all things conch at the Mars Bay Conch Fest, an annual festival that showcases the history and culture of "conching." Located in South Andros, the event has a rich indigenous history that is made more rich with each passing festival, and this one promises to be no different. Running from October 9th to the 12th, planned activities include contests revolving around this beloved island crustacean , including conch eating, cracking and skinning, Best Conch Salad, Best Conch Dish, Largest Conch, Fastest Made Conch Salad, a conch hunt, conch relay and more. There will also be lots of food and drink, plus games and activities for kiddos as well. Once it’s over, you’ll head back to your suite at our Bahamas beachfront resort, a true connoisseur of conch!
