Does eating fresh conch on the beach with a fruity cocktail in hand sound like the perfect way to spend an afternoon? If so, then Bugaloo’s Conch Crawl is the place for you!
During our visit to Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos, RumShopRyan and I were told by several people that Bugaloo’s was a MUST DO. Yeah yeah yeah, how cool could it really be? Could it be better than the Da Conch Shack? Not likely. But we will have to see for ourselves.
It turns out, this place has everything you could ask for in a beach bar; palm trees, live music, cold drinks, fresh seafood, stunning view and so much more. If you wanted to, you could even enjoy your lunch IN THE WATER for a unique tropical dinning experience.

After our hot but amazing exploration day down at Pirates Bay, Bugaloo’s was the perfect setting to relax, cool off, and indulge our Caribbean taste buds. Ryan’s Turks Head Lager and my frozen fruity libation really hit the spot as we settled into a “go slow” state of mind.
When it came to the food, I think our eyes were a little bigger than our stomachs, because the cracked conch appetizer would have been more than enough. The conch burger that RumShop ordered was a beast. It was quite a feat but he crushed it. Leave no conch behind! I think that’s a Caribbean motto, or maybe I just made it up. Either way it might look good on a T-Shirt, just saying.
My bacon cheeseburger…mmmmm
After we stuffed our faces, we managed to get up with our full happy bellies and waddle over to the shoreline. It was low tide to the extreme, but still beautiful. We took some pictures as we always do and watched a guy cut up some fresh conch right there in the water. It doesn’t get any fresher than that!
So Castaways, if you’re ever on Providenciales in Turks and Caicos, Bugaloo’s Conch Crawl is definitely a MUST DO. They have great food and it’s a great atmosphere for any island lover.
Never stop exploring!
