The ice cream bar is great and perfect after a long hot day at the beach. Dinner reservations are recommended- our concierge would be happy to help.
Nippers Beach Bar & Grill: Nippers Beach Bar & Grill, located on Great Guana Cay, is one of the most famous all-ages hot spots in all of the Abacos. You may have read about Nippers in travel magazines, seen photos on calendars, or perhaps even seen a documentary on the Discovery Channel — but you’ll never read about Nippers in any travel brochure. Why? Simply, because this particular piece of paradise can’t be adequately described in any number of words or photographs. You simply have to experience it for yourself. The menu features lunch and dinner as well as late night snacks and a children’s’ menu.
Wine Down & Sip Sip: Owners Bonnie and Arnold Hall help you relax with cool air conditioning, crackers, cheese, music and wine.
