Seafood Restaurant

“One of our favorite places on the island. Da Conch Shack on Blue Hills Beach offers True Caribbean flare. When you drive to this part of the island it feels more like the Caribbean, from the colourful buildings to the Pine Trees on the beach, this is away from the resort district and an exceptional place to spend some time. You will see cages filled with Conch in the water out front. You can watch them shuck fresh conch out back so you know your meal is made with the freshest seafood possible. Try the Conch Salad, Conch Fritters and amazing Conch Chowder, Rum Punch and Rum Cake. They serve conch every which way. They also serve chicken and have a great menu. They have a dance floor as a few times a week they have live music. They sell T-shirts and necklaces too. ”

Festival
“Every Thursday from 5.30-9.30pm at the Bight Park next to the Gansevoort Resort. Local food vendors, entertainers & cultural acts come together to create an evening of "all things TCI". The aroma of fresh fish frying permeates the air. Plates loaded with crab, rice, fish, lobster (only in season), mac'n cheese & local island corn straight off the frill, sit in front of hungry patrons. Bands, dance & cultural acts are intertwined throughout the evening. Folkloric storytelling & instrument demonstrations are showcased by presenter David Bowen (Minister of Culture). A Junkanoo rush brings the crowd to their feet, joining into the dance to the booming sound of the drums.”
