A fun beach bar with a safe beach and generous bar drinks. It's just re-opening so it's not fully stocked yet, but there is plenty to choose from and the food is surprisingly good - even in the rain. Staff friendly and helpful.

Having visited this fun little Gem on Great Guana many times in the past I am giving them 5 stars to begin with, I know they will earn them!! I wont actually be going there until the end of February but wanted everyone to know...that they have in fact re-opened. From what I've heard-The inside is still n/a for food but the outside, giftshop, pool and bar are all up an running. So Excited and Stay Tuned for my post visit review!!!!More

Nice place to have some pork on Sundays, after the beach. A bit expensive, but quite typical for the Bahamas. Service is OK and quality is fine. Maybe not the best to go with kids, as adults there tend to change after a few drinks....In front of a lovely beach where you can snorkle.More

Nippers is the place to go for lunch. We stopped at Nippers a few times during our stay. Friendly service with great food! They also have a great gift shop. :)

Beautiful view of the ocean. Very much a party atmosphere on Sunday and the 4th. Only negative is one bartender was very rude to my son. Totally ignored him when no one else was at the bar. Another customer asked the bartender when he was...gonna wait on him. So I am not sure what that was all about.More

Whether it’s the Nipper’s frozen drink, a cold beer, conch fritters or hanging out on one of the three levels or in one of the two pools, Nippers is THE spit to hang and enjoy the great beach below on Great Guana Cay. When the...locals are in abundance, you know the place is good. Food is typical Bahamian bar food with fresh fish among the savory delights to wash down with a cold beer. Service is prompt and it only takes a couple of visits to fall in among the regulars. Live music is often played and there are large screen TVs to watch sports from global markets and the US. There is a great gift shop with a variety of branded t-shirts, swim shirts, hats, visits and cover-ups - great wearable memories of relaxing and satiated times in the Bahamas.More

Very popular on Sunday's and you should go at least once to check the block. Crowded and loud sometimes. Service is slow during these times. Food is okay but as in the Bahamas nothing is fast or cheap. Bring sunscreen and insect repellant. They will...take down your credit card number on a piece of paper if you open a tab so if you don't want that - bring plenty of cash or checkout as you go....but that's a hassle when it's crowded. Closes by 6 because the last ferry leaves at 5:30 to Marsh Harbour.More

Rude service and prices not worth the visit. Better off at Orchid Bay or Grabbers. I guess it makes a good visit if you are drunk and like to toss money at a rude staff, get bit by bugs and have an awesome view. Maybe...when we were 20 something years old...... worst piece of key like pie EVER.More

We heard about the pig roast they have every Sunday and decided to make a stop here for the pork. The bar was jamming with a lot loud music and dancing. More geared for the younger crowd. The time for food was a lot longer...than we wanted to wait so we didn't partake in the food.More

Just your average beach bar in the Bahamas. Same food, high prices. Really average in every way. Place gets wild and crowded on Sundays. Our lunch was Friday afternoon. Beautiful beach setting. $66 for a burger, cracked conch and three cokes ($4 for each can...of Coke). Service, like the food was average. I will try somewhere else for my next meal on Guana Cay.More

Whenever we get to the Abacos, we include a trip to Nippers. The buffalo lobster bites are highly recommended. The bar offers all the usual island drinks. Access to a pool is a definite plus, it is a great way to cool off while enjoying...your drink.More

We were there in a late afternoon on a Fri. and hardly anyone was there. The view was spectacular!!! Great fun taking pics in front of the small rock at the edge of the water. We order goombay smashes and they were delicious and we...could taste the liquor so that was nice. We only had time for a drink and enjoyed our visit!More

Sorry, don't know where Ocean view villas at Blackpoint are. Guana Key is a 30 minute ferry ride from Marsh Harbor, Abaco, if that helps.

Yes it will take a boat to get there... I'm not sure how from Treasure we took out time Island hoping by our own boat. You better be a captain to navigate the Islands😉
