Off to "Camp Great Guana" for a Few Days of Music and Adult Beverages

     Heading today for “Camp Great Guana” in the Bahamas.  Four fun days of party and great music.  The Barefoot Man George Nowak is playing is final concert there this weekend.  We have been to Nipper’s for his concerts since the mid 1990’s and George has become a good friend over the years.  Looking forward to seeing and hearing him for the final time at Nipper’s on Great Guana Cay along the ”Crystal Sea”. 

    It is a long, narrow islet, 7 miles long, It is in the center of the Abaco Islands and is near Gurnelemi Cay.   It is located about 8 miles from Marsh Harbour.   There are approximately 150 people that live on the island, mostly along the five and a half mile long stretch of beach on the east side of the island overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

     Great Guana Cay's settlement is known for its loyalist culture and architecture, as well as its social scene. Several traditional loyalist homes are in the settlement, which wraps around a natural harbor.  Nipper’s and Grabber’s located around the area of Guana Harbour is one of the biggest tourist attractions on the island.
