Navigating the Sea of Life
(12/28/17) Nippers sits up on the hill at Great Guana Cay. Nippers is open 364 days a year starting at 7 a.m. until the last customer leaves. The view of the Atlantic ocean is fantastic from the open air deck which has room for picnic tables and a dance floor. It is easy to get some lunch then go to the beach for a nap or ride the crashing waves. Bring your snorkel gear and you can check out the reefs nearby. If you don’t want to get sand on your feet, you can take your pick of two swimming pools.
If you like to dance, this is the place. There is always great music playing and once or twice a year they host a Barefoot Man Concert which we hear is great fun. Nippers is famous for its pig roast buffet every Sunday from 12:30-4:00. The menu on these days is roast pork, bbq pork, peas & rice, mac & cheese, corn, potato salad, cajun cole slaw, custard cornbread, watermelon and fruit salad. Go hungry!
Nippers was the final stop for the Golf Cart Parade. When we arrived the music was blaring and the crowd was beginning to form. We enjoyed meeting several people from Georgia. Steve made a connection with a classmate from elementary school back in Atlanta!
The crowd was much more family friendly than when Steve and I went back in 2013. I think we were there during a spring break week which meant it was a little bit like spring break in Panama City or Myrtle Beach. This after Christmas crowd was made up of families with children young and old. Everyone was dancing and enjoying the music. Nippers proved to be very gracious hosts by providing a heavy hors d’oeuvres buffet for all to enjoy. The food was delicious and warm on the slightly cool evening.
If you are ever in Great Guana Cay–check out Nippers!
