Nippers offers entertainment for Great Guana Cay visitors

GREAT GUANA CAY, Bahamas -- About a five-minute cart ride from Dolphin Beach Resort here is Nippers on the Beach, one of the only places for entertainment on this island in the Abaco chain.

The trip to Nippers is along winding roads, past the clapboard cottages that house the island's 80 or so residents.

Nippers' claim to fame is a wild boar roast and barbecue on Sundays. The restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner.

Sandwiches, seafood and burgers are the standard fare, with specialties such as the Chicken "Whatever" platter and sandwich and Swim and Turf, a combination of grilled dolphin, tuna or wahoo and New York strip steak.

Colorful tables and umbrellas and a wooden bar overlook an empty beach and the turquoise ocean.

The restaurant added a pool in 1998, complete with a swim-up bar and water slide.

Nippers on the Beach can be reached at (242) 365-5143.
