Bayside View for beer and Conch salad! We went twice because it was soooo delicious. Tyrone and his wife were amazing and made our visit special. We bought stone crabs next door and had a feast! Tarpum Bay was gem!

We drove through a few times and decided to stop on our last pass to really take in the view. Found a small Bayside Cafe serving fresh conch salad and fritters. So good!

We made several stops on this trip. The water is amazing with beautiful beach areas. We also had lunch and just really enjoyed our tour. It was warm, but not too warm to really enjoy the scenery.More

I love visiting Tarpum Bay. I live in South Eleuthera, and any time I am driving up island, I stop in Tarpum. The beaches are beautiful, and the main road takes you up against the coast. You should stop, park the car, and go beach...More
