Bahamas Bliss: Bimini

Bahamas Bliss: Bimini


National Geographic Traveler, The Travel Channel, Forbes Travel, and AOL Travel, have all recently named The Biminis one of the top snorkeling, and SCUBA diving spots in the world, backdrop to countless underwater movies depicting the best of cinematography.

The Biminis,“Gateway to the Bahamas," and "Game Fishing Capital,” is steeped in legend and lore; pirates and rum-running history are forever tied to Ernest Hemingway, who resided in Bimini for several years.

An effortless, 25-minute flight, Bimini, is a few hours by boat or yacht from Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Freeport, and Nassau. The Biminis, with its countless shades of aqua water, is one of the Bahamas top Out Island destinations.
