Da Conch Shack & RumBar, Providenciales


For a small island with not even one stop light, Providenciales in the Turks & sure has a large number of simply amazing beaches (see The Stunning Beaches of Providenciales), and a number of really fun beach bars too.

One of the better known, da Conch Shack & RumBar, is located in the Blue Hills area on the northern coast of Provo (next door to Kalooki’s).

da Conch Shack & RumBar provides deliciously fresh seafood and a wide variety of conch dishes – cracked conch, conch salad, conch fritters, conch creole, and curried conch.

And if all that delicious conch & seafood weren’t enough, the RumBar serves up an excellent Rum Punch called Jan’s Rum Punch, served by the glass or pitcher.

We ordered conch fritters, conch salad and a couple Rum Punches and settled in to listen to the live music and enjoy the sea breeze.

O’Brien, the bartender at the RumBar was great to talk “rum” with and delighted in sharing his favorite rum selections.

Listed as one of the 1,000 places to see before you die in the book of the same name, we’d have to agree that it’s well worth a visit, or two, while staying in Provo.

Snappas Grill & Chill, Marsh Harbour, Abaco

From the outside it looks fairly unassuming, but on the inside it can be hopping. Snappas, a bar/restaurant that sits on the waters edge in Marsh Harbour was a fun place to hang out during our visit earlier this year to The Abacos, Bahamas.

Close to the dock where we left on our Abacos sail in March Harbour, we ventured over to Snappas on several occasions to enjoy a cold beverage, a warm meal and conversation with other boaters.

With live music on Friday & Saturday nights, cold drinks, warm food and friendly people, Snappas is a great place to chill while in Marsh Harbour. And don’t forget to look out back at sunset to see if you can catch a glimpse of one of their amazing sunset views…
