Sleepy is how days begin on Potter's Cay. Conch Shacks wake up slow. Divers for hire fish the shallow waters behind the shacks where chefs store their conch to keep it fresh.
Beneath the soaring overpass connecting Nassau to Paradise Island rests the sleepy fishing docks, lively fruit markets, and brightly colored conch shacks of Potter’s Cay. All day long, roughly forty chefs in forty different shacks cook fresh conch dishes in forty different ways.
Like no business you know.
Tip: How do you know which stall to try? Before heading to Potter’s Cay, ask a local which stall is their favorite.
fresh all day
"You can get a Conch Salad one hundred different ways Everybody make it different"- Mckenzie
McKenzie, a former conch fisherman turned restaurateur, is a bit of a local celebrity. Twenty-five years in the same location, McKenzie’s shack is prime real estate, well-advertised and easy to find. His is the first shack on the west side of the bridge.
