A perennial favorite amongst locals and tourists alike, da Conch Shack is practically a legend down in these parts. This Caribbean beach bar extraordinairre serves up delicious local foods, such as curried conch, cracked conch, fried conch, conch fritters and conch creole. Notice a pattern here? Yes, conch is the specialty of the hour, but by no means does the delicious menu stop there. You can also try Lobster Curry, Butter Poached Curry Shrimp, Baked Grouper or Jerk Chicken for a true taste of the Tropics! Dining with a vegetarian, a vegan or the kiddies? No worries! Salads, rice, peas, chicken fingers and mac’n’cheese are also available. To drink, you can get boozy with sweet-tasting rum punch, Conch Knocker shots or Turks Head Beer; it’s your choice!
And speaking of views! To die for panoramic beach views of the calm turquoise waters lapping up gently towards the white sandy beaches.
The winner of many awards, da Conch Shack has been recognized by the BBC as “One of the World’s Best Beach Restaurants,” and named “the ideal spot” by the NY Times, and “One of the World’s Top Beach Bars” by CNN. You can’t beat that! Also named a “must visit place” and “an island icon” on Tripadvisor, da Conch Shack is simply not to be missed!
So, next time you’re in the Turks and Caicos Islands, head on down to Blue Hills Beach, find the old boat full of conch shells in the parking lot, throw down some Conch Knocker shots as the sun sets, party it up at the Hump and Bump live music Wednesdays, get your seafood fix and buy a skull and bones T-shirt on your way out.
You’re on vacation! Enjoy yourself in this lively and eclectic tropical beach bar.
