The beach bar world dabbles in the foodie world a little bit this week on Instagram as lion fish and ring dings barge their way into our consciousness as suitable food items for beach bar bums. I’ve never had lionfish and my tendency to want to puke every time I think of ingesting anything that looks exactly the same on your plate as it did alive will probably prohibit me from ever eating it. And the texture. Ugh. Don’t let that stop you from trying lionfish, though. I guess if an invasive species is trying to take over your planet, cooking them up and eating them is a pretty effective population control plan. Keep feeding me ring dings, however, and I’ll be your drinking buddy for the rest of the night.
Three of our favorite bloggers are featured in this week’s post. Our Tasty Travels weighs in on lionfish as a delicacy and what the people on Ambergris Caye are doing to fight the invasive species, local Belize expert Erin De Santiago documents the wall of rum getting ready for this past weekend’s Costa Maya Festival (also on Ambergris Caye) and Beaches, Bars and Bungalows asks the age old question – to driftwood or not to driftwood?
If you’d like your images to be featured on the blog, use the #beachbarbums tag and I’ll comment on the image you tagged to let you know it’s been featured. If you have a travel blog or personal website, I also try and post links to those whenever possible. I occasionally give away free stuff to some of my favorites so that’s pretty cool, I guess. Plus, the blog gets almost 700 views a day and the article is shared to all of my social media sites – you’ll never find a more dedicated group of beach bar lovers anywhere! If you’d like me to write an article featuring just your photos, send me an email at info at beach bar bums dot com and we’ll talk it over. Cheers!
Would you hang out at a beach bar + resort made of driftwood? Does Monday morning make you think of cocktails by the sea? If yes to either of the above, let's make a plan!

Today on #beachventures🌴 we went to Shoal Bay East and if you didn't know this is my favorite beach in the universe, I even wear it's sand on my finger, literally. White sand, blue water, clear skies, beautiful horizon and a plethora of restaurants to choose from. We walked this entire beach just enjoying the day and our blessings. #Anguilla #BikiniSunset #beach #pocket_beaches #loves_caribbeansea #islandLIFE #isweting #photo_beaches #beachbarbums #beachbums
Have you ever eaten Lionfish? It's an invasive species wreaking havoc with our barrier reef system here in Belize. To help combat the growing problem, there are Lionfish tournaments and restaurants who serve cuisine made with Lionfish. Here on Ambergris Caye, we have a restaurant/bar whose menu is devoted to It. Lionfish nachos, ceviche, and more. These are the Lionfish cakes – not bad!
Got rum? Wall of #Belizean rums from Traveller's Liquors here in San Pedro, #Belize! This weekend is the big Costa Maya Festival with lots of events and beach parties going on. Traveller's is passing out samples of free rum punch at their store here in San Pedro, so if you're here in town, head to Middle Street!
