About Guana Cay

Here's a little info about Great Guana Cay

Great Guana Cay features miles and miles of white, sandy beach - just waiting to be explored. Perfect for walking, running, swimming, snorkeling, surfing, tanning or collecting shell, sea glass or sea beans. Maybe you’ll even find an antique glass ball that has floated ashore.

When you are ready to socialize, you can visit one of the bars in Guana. All have beautiful views. At famous Nipper’s Beach Bar and Restaurant you can overlook the Atlantic Ocean. If you like a crowd, you should visit on a Sunday, when they serve their pig roast. Nipper's has an air conditioned, indoor restaurant called "Overso" and a gift shop with beach wear, jewelry, bags, souvenirs and cigars. You would probably want to try the Nipper juice, a tropical drink that is a lot stronger than it tastes... This drink makes it is easy to forget your beach bag, cell phone, children, husband, etc. Nipper's at Sundays are for enjoying life with a crowd, and watching people dancing on the tables. You may find yourself dancing on a table too... Don't say you haven't been warned...

If you walk down the Front Street winding along the harbor, you will find Grabber’s Bed Bar & Grill at the end of the street. It will take you only deckchairs on the beach, or in a hammock while you are watching the sailboats anchoring up at Fisher's Bay. You can get on a paddle board and paddle around the small rock you see out in the bay, or paddle up along the shore line in a Kayak. If you are in good shape, you might even make it to Baker's Bay, where you can only watch from the water, and not enter. Grabbers serve their own exotic concoction of a tropical drink. This one is called Guana Grabber, so watch yourself! The general population in Guana consists of no more than 150 people. In addition there are at least as many second home-owners, but they are all rarely on the island at the same time. And then we have quite a few foreigners and Bahamians working at Bakers Bay. The locals are friendly and most of them would greet you with a "hi" and a wave on passing. If you have questions, everyone will be more than happy to help you.

There are several choices if you want to go shopping for gifts for yourself and anyone else. All the bars and restaurants have gift shops, featuring their own brand. In addition you will find two more clothing stores, one grocery store and one liquor store. You shouldn’t want for anything in Guana Cay.
