Beautiful Beaches: Great Guana Cay

     When it comes to great beaches and beautiful water it is hard to beat the view from Nipper's  on Great Guana Cay in the Abacos area of the Bahamas.    The interaction of the water with the sand and the sea oats covered sand dunes makes for a picture that you just can't seem to get out of your mind.    The really funny thing about this place is that Nipper's is a great beach bar that is famous for their Sunday pig roasts and Barefoot Man concerts and a fabulous punch.   Today that is not the thing that stands out in my mind.   I'm thinking about the breezes, the ocean and the sand.

     Lying out to sea from the sand dunes is the third largest barrier reef in the world.   This just adds to the mystique that makes this part of the Bahamas such a wonderful place to be and have fun.     It seems like a desert island as you sit on the dunes and look out over the sea oats, beach, and the water toward infinity.     The ocean and her palate of colors give this view a look as though it was a watercolor painting rather that a real place.

     No matter how you look at the beaches of Great Guana Cay, the view is spectacular and it leaves you with a feeling of serenity and peacefulness that doesn't evaporate when you leave the beach.   ;o)
