We enjoyed going to Tarpum Bay. We went to get some fresh fish for dinner and ended up having an outstanding conch salad and conch fritters from a roadside stand. The lady made us the fritters while we waited then we went to get the fish from the fisherman. While he was cleaning the fish she made the conch salad! Excellent! Everyone in town was so friendly and were very welcoming!
Try it!

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 combing. There are also fishermen cleaning their recent catch, so you can pick up lobster or fish at a reasonable price. If you happen to be passing through at night, there are often activities on the main fairground (that you pass once you turn away from the ocean, when heading north)..you will definitely hear the music and know if something is going on! I also agree with a previous reviewer that it's not really a destination, but a cool spot to stop while you are heading somewhere else.

We stopped at the marina area about 5pm to buy fresh crayfish. It was quite interesting to see fishers cleaning their day's catches. Even better was eating the reasonably priced fresh seafood we took back home for supper.

It's tiny so don't blink but if you drive through be sure to stop If anyone is one the dock selling fish. Then walk around and say hello to local kids and enjoy the colorful houses. Best seen while driving through to wherever your going, not a destination but part of the journey.

truly picture perfect town right on the water with historic buildings and friendly people. Fish available fresh from the sea from the fishermen who caught them. Interesting back streets to wander through
