We moored on the other side of the Cay, over by Grabbers. We pre-gamed at Grabbers and took the short walk over to Nippers. We were there on a Sunday during low season, but the place was hopping! The view was spectacular. White sand, turquoise water and then beyond the breaking waves, royal blue water. None of the photos that... More

We went on a Sunday afternoon, it was super windy but such an amazing day. Some of group got in the water and enjoyed the waves. The food was amazing. (Although we didn't actually have the pig roast, it was $30) It was super neat to watch the kite surfers out on the ocean.

Nice place on Great Guana Cay to eat and cool off, Nice selection on the menu. You have to dock your boat on the Bay side and walk to the other side of the Island. But its a nice walk.

Nippers is one of those places you have to visit at least once. Was there in the off season so pretty much had the place to ourselves. Guana cay is a fantastic place that is frozen in time. Every trip to Abaco deserves a stop at nippers. The buffalo conch fritters are not to be missed. The key lime pie... More

We tend to come here every September and hang out for a Sunday afternoon. Because we are staying two weeks this year we will probably make it over twice. They have a pig roast every Sunday, but we tend to skip it and order off the menu. This past Sunday we had a burger and fried grouper. The burger wears... More

A great spot to visit when on Guana. Very Bahamian - owned and operated by locals. Food is very good. The "House Drink - the Nipper is delicious but can sneak up on you..." Beautiful beach. Nice pool.

This is what we expected, a crowded, loud beach bar with lots of younger (than us) people, we went for the pig roast, and it was pretty good. Again though, we just went to get the t-shirt sort-of-speak.

Everyone goes to Nippers and there are plenty of reasons for this. To begin with this is the "beach bar" that every other beach bar wishes it was. While it is primarily an outdoor venue, the kitchen turns out great food and there is an indoor dining room called "Overso" available. The sound system is very high tech and the... More

Great casual beach wear and watering hole. It has a great little gift shop. A Nippers T shirt is a must. Relax in the pool or at the bar. It's right on the ocean. Great staff and good service.
