McKenzie’s Conch Shack, Marina Village

Conch salad is a staple in The Bahamas. Fresh, light, and flavorful, this concoction of tasty conch and bright, juicy citrus is the perfect lunch to enjoy in the sunshine. The original McKenzie’s, located in Potter’s Cay, is a favorite amongst locals, and the Marina Village location brings this delicious dish to guests of Atlantis Paradise Island.

Sip Sip, The Cove at Atlantis

Committed to supporting local fishermen and farmers and created with locally-sourced ingredients, Sip Sip’s signature “Caribterranean” flavors make a casual meal extraordinary – and the beachy view is a nice touch! Grab a table overlooking the beach and enjoy a delicious lunch of Spicy Conch Chilli or Lobster Quesadillas. Thirsty? Pair your lunch with a refreshing Sky Juice...after all, you’re on vacation.

Dinner With a View

Dune by Jean-Georges Vongerichton, The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort

While Dune has a large indoor dining room, you’ll want to snag a seat on the deck overlooking an absolutely gorgeous stretch of Paradise Island beach. It’s the perfect place to enjoy French-Asian cuisine infused with Bahamian influences created by internationally-renowned Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Dine at Dune for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – no matter what time of day you visit, you’re sure to be delighted. 

Costa, Rosewood Baha Mar

Craving Mexican? Slide into one of Costa’s open-air communal cabanas and enjoy your favorite traditional dishes with a unique coastal twist. From small plates and fresh ceviches to tacos and churros, Costa’s lively atmosphere is perfect for lingering over lunch or savoring a fabulous dinner.

Beach Bites and Poolside Snacks

Versailles Terrace, The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort

The Versailles pool at The Ocean Club is an absolutely stunning place to spend the day, and luckily you don’t have to leave when you get hungry. The Versailles Terrace serves a variety of local and international cuisines, like Bahamian chowder, cracked lobster, and decadent rum cakes. Linger by the sparkling pool under the magnificent terraced gardens for a leisurely lunch, or sip on a nightcap as evening approaches. 

Sandy Dog, Baha Mar

There’s something about a day at the beach that can make you absolutely crave a hotdog! Good news if you’re at Baha Mar: just steps from the sand, you can grab a grown-up twist on this childhood favorite at Sandy Dog. Pile your dog high with premium toppings and pair it with tasty sides. And if a hot dog is not your speed, check out the other Airstream trailers next to the beach – you’re sure to find a snack or light lunch that will satisfy!
