The island of Bimini occupies a special place in the mystic of the Bahamas. It has a history and character completely out of proportion to its size. Even icons such as Ernest Hemingway and Jimmy Buffett have called the island home at one point or another. But the island’s special charms are not just for celebrities. The beaches and crystal clear waters surrounding the island are some of the prettiest in the Caribbean. And with a modest number of hotels you are assured of secluded beaches, just steps from your room.
Bimini is famous for its crystal clear waters and abundant marine life. Whether fishing, diving, or just strolling along the beaches, Bimini has something for everyone.
SCUBA Diving - Bimini is consistently listed as one of the top SCUBA diving destinations in the world.  Colorful corals and abundant fish make each dive an unforgettable adventure.
