Quiet in the offseason, but still an experience!

We visited Nippers on a Monday evening in April, when it was very quiet, and no one was in the pools. But as we had a toddler and a baby with us, that worked out just fine. All... read more

You have to go once!!! Not so sure about bringing the kids. If you like to people watch, this be the place in the Abacos. Drinks were well made. Beers were cold. Staff was busy. Did not eat there.

Went here with a small group, and three people were charged three (consecutively higher) prices for the same drink. Also, when the bartender charged me for 4 drinks at $4 apiece, she asked for $32 and wondered why I gave her a $20 bill. Seriously?? Go for the amazing beach but steer clear of the bar.

We visited Nippers on a Monday evening in April, when it was very quiet, and no one was in the pools. But as we had a toddler and a baby with us, that worked out just fine. All the adults tried the Nippers drink (good; a very sweet rum drink like most signatures in the Bahamas), and enjoyed the beautiful... More

If you are looking for a nice, quiet dinner in with a nice view, turn away. Nippers is all about hanging out with friends drinking expensive drinks at one of the biggest parties in the Bahamas. Especially on Sunday afternoon. Most of the week it is pretty tame, a good place to go to grab a bite and get a... More

Had lots of recommendations to visit Nippers on our trip to the Bahamas. Most of the reviews of the place were great and the view is outstanding. We couldn't wait to try the place! We choose a Friday afternoon thinking if it was awesome we may come back for the Sunday party. After choosing our table, we waited and waited... More

We've been there probably 20 times but always the best place in Abaco on Sunday! Thanks Jonny for keeping it going on. Food is awesome, everything from burgers to buffet. The Nippers are always great and such a fun place to watch the day fade into the night!

This place is all about the experience. It is outdoors and had a pool and bar. I am sure it gets really crazy, but it was calm when we were there. The food was nothing to write home about. Drinks were good.

Nice place on the beach with good conch, burgers and chicken. Bring your snorkeling gear, or body surf the waves then take a swim in the pool. Plenty of tables with some in the shade.

Probably it was because it was our last day in Abaco, or because the weather was not good and you could not see other people around, but I'm sure that the memory of the day that I spent in Guana Cay will stay with me until I will be able to go back a second time. We were the only... More

Yes, NIppers is an Island establishment you must experience! Several Nippers frozen drinks later as you are dancing on the tables, enjoying the awesome view and eating cracked conch you realize it's the best place to be! Pig Roast on Sundays and concerts from time to time....but Island music playing all the time! Say Hello to the owner Johnny Roberts... More
