Bimimi is a gem within the Bahamas, consisting out of North Bimimi, South Bimimi and plenty of smaller cays. It are the nearest islands to Florida and many visitors arrive here by boat in a 3 hour bout tour, but there is an airstrip as well. Alice Town is where it is all happening. Bars, hotels, nightlife and accommodation types in all sorts and price classes. The two main roads King's highway and Queens Highway are lined with shops, bars and marinas. You can visit one of the many public beaches, the Ernest Hemingway Museum, a sulpher spring called Healing Hole or an open air market. Rumrunners stored their goods just offshore and smuggeled them into the United States. An inland Bimini Nature Trail shows you all the life there is to be spotted in Bimimi. Popular beaches are Tiki Hut Beach, Porgy Bay Beach or Bimini Bay Beach. Tours on the water are plentifull; from glass bottomed boat tours, snorkel trips to deep sea fishing tours. Bimimi is commonly known for its great deepsea fishing, reached minutes from shore. Cays nearby are Cat Cay, Ocean Cay and Gun Cay each with their own dive sites and points of interests.
Probably one of the best known places to go scuba diving is the Bimini Trader wreck. Other well known dive sites, most including anchor buoy, are Atlantis Road (is it indeed the road to AtLantis?), the rumrunner wreck Sapona and the Kinks where coral heads are found in large numbers. You can dive one of the many dropoffs into the Florida Straits or just relax and enjoy the wild and rich colors of its magnificent underwater environment. Dolphins, manta rays and plenty of pelagic gamefish pass by. It is a great place to be, to relax and to scuba dive.
