Bimini, Bahamas is just 50 miles from Florida, but its relaxed atmosphere is a world away from the hustle and bustle of home. If you book your flight and hotel together with Orbitz, you’ll be able to plan the Bimini vacation of your dreams in just a few minutes
Bimini is famous for its history, fishing, nightlife, and, of course, beautiful white sand beaches. It’s the westernmost island of the Bahamas, located between the “big island” of Andros Island and the Florida Keys. Author Ernest Hemingway loved big-game fishing in Bimini. You’ll catch mackerel and wahoo in the winter, bluefin tuna, sailfish, and marlin in the spring, and barracuda and grouper in the summer.
Nightlife in Bimini is also unrivaled among the Bahamian islands. Thanks to its location near the mainland US, rumrunners stored their stashes here during prohibition. Jimmy Buffet even wrote part of his book here. All of this is to say, Bimini knows how to party. Head to King’s Highway in Alice Town to experience the legendary nightlife for yourself.
There are few cars on the little island of Bimini, adding to its island-getaway charm. Instead, navigate North Bimini by tram, or take the ferry between North and South Bimini. To explore at your own pace, golf cart and bicycle are the best ways to go.
