Fodor's Expert Review Shine's One-Stop Conch Shack
As close to nightlife as you'll get on Mangrove Cay, visit Shine’s conch shack and you’ll be wall-diving deep into Androsian flavor. Exuberant Shine is a superfriendly host, fishing guide, and lobster catcher (a major industry on Mangrove Cay). He can’t wait for you to down one of his stories along with a beer or a pineapple-coconut-flavored Goombay Smash. Smack on the water, this popular local hangout is a place to mix fresh conch salad and seafood with friendly native banter. Shine rivals Mangrove Cay’s blue holes as a memorable attraction. Dominoes and backgammon with reggae and calypso tunes add to the upbeat ambience.
