Popular island eatery Bugaloos Conch Crawl has opened its second location in the heart of Grace Bay, Providenciales. Bugaloos restaurant was originally opened in 1994 by Berlie “Bugaloo” Williams in the beautiful beachside community of Blue Hills. The restaurant was beloved by residents and visitors alike. It soon grew in popularity and became a ‘must-do’ for visitors seeking an authentic taste of the Turks and Caicos Islands. Of course, the signature dish on Bugaloo’s menu was conch – freshly caught on site and prepared for patrons in a variety of ways including cracked conch, conch fritters and conch salad (ceviche).
Years later, the restaurant moved to the Five Cays community where it is still a fan favorite for many. The beachside location in Five Cays added to its popularity and it is perhaps one of the most Instagrammable spots on the island. The shallow waters allow for small children to wade in the water under the watchful eyes of their guardians as they enjoy the music of the live band.
Now, Bugaloo’s Conch Crawl has added a second location and it is already a hit! The new restaurant is located next to Danny Buoy’s and across from the Regent Village shopping center. Visitors now have the option to dine in with water views at the Five Cays location or enjoy the convenience of the Grace Bay location – same menu, same great island vibes!
Bugaloo’s Conch Crawl is the newest dining option on the Grace Bay strip which already boasts a variety of restaurants serving up a diversity of cuisines including French, Italian, Thai, Japanese and of course our savory island traditional dishes.
