Good but pricey

Food was actually really excellent even though it was just a beachside watering hole. The lady running the bar and grill was extremely friendly.

Take the 12A Bus from Cable Beach and experience a bit of the local scene...What a great setting!!...the bar is right on the water and directly under the landing path of incoming flights!!...interesting old music venue attached at the front...only been there (two years in a row) during the early afternoon hours...but we love it!!

Not your typical tourist trap. It was a bit of a challenge getting here and back to our rental. But I have to say it was worth every minute. We took a cab to nirvana beach. The driver said he would come back, don't bet on it though. After an amazing day of snorkeling the various reefs you can easily... More

We were on a weekend cruise and stopped in Nassau, there were six of us, so we rented a car, and driving around the island we decided to stop at a beach and we found this bar and a beautifull beach. Some of us wanted to go to the beach and the rest stayed at the bar having some drinks.... More

Great beach bar, it's got wonderful food and the beach is beautiful. The music is always pretty good but it is loud so bare that in mind before you come.

We went to Nirvana Beach Bar on July 4 with a bunch of Canadians celebrating a belated Canada Day. It was our first time going to this beach and never knew it existed - we've been living about 10 minutes away for the past 9 months! You need to know where to find it but once you're there, the place... More

We were staying a little outside of Nassau and our hosts suggested Love Beach/Nirvana and we couldn't have been happier. If you've been over to Paradise Island you know how busy beaches can be in the Nassau area. This is a laid back, reasonably priced spot where you can swim in beautiful water and drink as much Kalik as you... More

We have been to Nassau many of times and were looking for something new to try. We stumbled upon the Nirvana Beach Bar by a bus driver who took us there. The beach is not crowded (maybe four other families). We were able to snorkel and see coral. We also rented a kayak and paddled out further to see more... More

We were taken here by Cheryls Taxi service to celebrate my daughters 20th Birthday. They had setup a table on the beach and decorated it which was great. The staff were very friendly and one of the local singers even came across and gave her a free CD of his music. We had the Snapper Dinner and the Chicken dinners... More

Went to Nirvana beach, and had some food right of the grill. It was delicious and some of the best food I've had. The place itself is beautiful, it's a very lovely place. I will definitely come back.
