Crack a Conch and Eat It Too

September 13, 2016

Walk along Andros’s beaches, and you’re likely to see a lot of conches along the shores. If you’d like to try the fresh seafood during your time in the Bahamas—and see firsthand how conch dishes are prepared—be sure to dine at Shine’s Conch Shack. This restaurant is well-known for cracking open and cooking the conch right in front of you, so it’s guaranteed to be some of the freshest seafood available on the island. And if fishing is on your schedule for this vacation, bear in mind that Shine himself is a bonefishing expert—and he and any locals you meet would love to exchange their favorite stories and fishing sweet spots. Enjoy a cold beer with your conch salad, fritters, and ceviche, and know that it will be easy to return to Kamalame Cay when you’re ready to relax after your meal and prepare for the next event on your list.
