Bimini, Bahamas

Located just 53 miles from Florida's shore, the Bimini Islands are the closest Bahamian islands to the United States, and is an ideal escape for a day or weekend. Steeped in history, Bimini is known as the place Ernest Hemingway was inspired to write two of his legendary novels, The Old Man and the Sea and Islands in the Sun, while staying at the Compleat Angler Hotel in the 1930s. Rustic and unspoiled, Bimini is home to endless empty beaches, friendly locals, and fresh, uncomplicated local cuisine. 


Your charter flight takes you over the aqua blue waters of the Bahamas to South Bimini, where you will land on a simple airstrip. Clear customs and take a small fishing boat-sized ferry across the turquoise blue waters to North Bimini about 15 minutes away. 


The ferry will arrive in Alice Town, the main town. There you can travel the Island on foot or rent one of the Island's famous golf carts to explore the Island's many charming towns and beaches. ​​

Where to go

Travel along King's Highway, the main road through the towns of North Bimini. On your way, explore one of the many cross-streets that wind their way to the Ocean and end at a secluded beach. Traveling this road, picture the rumrunners, who stashed their rum on the shores of the Island during Prohibition.


Stop at the Taste of Heaven Bakery for homemade donuts, sweet rolls and coffee - rated #1 by TripAdvisor. 


Bimini is know as one of the bonefishing capitals of the Bahamas. So hire a guide and spend the morning fly fishing for local bonefish or take to the seas for deep sea fishing like the legendary Ernest Hemingway.


For lunch, make your way to a local roadside conch shack for cracked conch salad. Try Joe's Conch Shack. The conch comes fresh from the sea. Sit at the bar and watch your conch salad being made, while exchanging local gossip with the chef. For a typical Bahamian lunch of fried conch and other local specialities, make your way to the Aqua Grille. Set next to the serene infinity pool, you can enjoy lunch and a tasty rum-filled tropical drink while gazing at the Ocean.


In the afternoon, you can take a dive trip to the legendary Bimini Road, and underwater "highway" of stone formations dating back 5,000 to 10,000 years, and thought to be the mythical lost city of Atlantis. Then, explore the many shipwrecks ravaged on the coral reefs during the 1928 hurricane. 

Take a kayak and paddle amongst the mangroves to the Healing Hole, a natural deep sulfur spring that the locals claim have healing powers. Swim with the sharks and view them up close in their natural surroundings or play in the blue-green waters with the local spotted dolphins, who are friendly and social - no snorkeling or scuba equipment required.   


At the end of the day, relax at one of the Islands many local bars - the Healing Hole Rum Bar serves tropical cocktails and local grilled Bahamian specialities - sip rum cocktails while taking in the sunset and beautiful water views.
