Are you in the mood to put your feet up and dream as you listen to the soothing sound of the waves lapping the shore? Or do you just want to get busy exploring the area and its surroundings? Either way, North Bimini, Bahamas is your place to go.

OK, so when there’s north, there’s got to be south, right? To crash a bit on geography, yes, there is also indeed South Bimini. It has a small airstrip and home to two hotels. It is rustic and silent and tourists go there if they want to enjoy a more private getaway. Now, North Bimini is quite different. This part on the opposite side of the channel is relatively busy and populated. However, people here can easily cross the water and enjoy the quieter south whenever they want to. Needless to say, it’s very possible too, to do vice versa.

North Bimini is just about 48 miles east of Miami Florida but it is not as ultra-modern and hectic. The island has an easy way of life which is very reminiscent of the old days. Spanish galleon ships here make fascinating diving locations and so do the exotic fish, black corals, and mysterious formations of stone which some believe are the lost Atlantis.

Alice Town is how you call the commercial center of Bimini where you can find shops restaurants, and bars. The streets here could get pretty wild especially during the season of fishing tournaments. If you love the nightlife, the bars you shouldn’t miss here are the Compleat Angler and the End of the World.
