Welcome to The Biminis
On the edge of the Gulf Stream, closer to Miami than Nassau, this postage-stamp paradise comprises North, South and East Bimini and a scattering of private and uninhabited islets. Naturally stunning, culturally relaxed and boasting excellent diving and unsurpassed deep-sea fishing, Bimini is well worth the 30-minute flight from Nassau. Once home to Prohibition-era rum-runners and one of Papa Hemingway's legendary haunts, it's now a favorite destination of serious fisherfolk and sunseekers from the States and beyond. The arrival of the slick Resorts World complex on North Bimini has deprived Alice Town and other settlements of a good deal of the tourist trade they once enjoyed.
