Eight Mile Rock
Eight Mile Rock is outside the Port area. It will give you more of a feel for what living in the rest of the Bahamas is like.
The “Annual McLean’s Town Conch Cracking Championship & Festival” will be held on Oct 13 2006.
The highlight of this all-day festival will be the Conch Cracking Contest, to see which contestant extracts the highest number of conchs in record time. The event takes place in the quaint fishing village of McLean’s Town, in east Grand Bahama Island, beginning at 10:00 a.m. through 9:00 p.m. This contest started in 1972 when the principal of the McLean’s Town All Age School, Mr. Jeffrey David Morgan, a British national, organized the first contest to raise funds for the school and the community.
