Bimini beaches are usually fluttered with tourists coming to Bimini Bahamas on the crowded ferries from Florida to Bahamas. However, if you manage it right, you could still find secret spots in Bimini to make your Bimini day cruise a fun one. The white sand Bimini beaches are popular for a reason. With your toes in the sand in an exotic location not farther away from the United States coast than your daily commute to work, it is no wonder why this island is known as the Gateway to the Bahamas.
The Bahamas is an archipelago country known for its vast system of tropical islands and cays. A chain of more than 700 islands makes up this small sea-dwelling country in-between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Most people take a Bahamas vacation for the Grade A beaches, turquoise-colored waters full of vibrant marine life, and quaint island vibe. And those are great Bahamas attractions, however, there are even more secrets to be discovered in all of Bahamian islands.
You can take a Bimini day cruise with Bahamas Air Tours to discover all the things to do in Bimini beaches and, later, take Bahamas day trips by plane to other parts of the Bahamas like to Exuma day trips on a Nassau to Staniel Cay day trip. The possibilities seem truly endless.
Top 10 Things to do in Bimini Beaches
Here are a few of the many things to do in Bimini beaches in the Bahamas:
1. Resorts World Bimini Bahamas
OK, we know this unbelievable resort is one of the main destinations in Bimini, but we felt it must be included. Resorts World Bimini is simply outstanding and a must-see in the Bahamas. Spend your day touring around Resorts World Bimini which covers half the area of the island of Bimini. Here, there’s plenty to do on the white sand beaches which are privately owned.
2. Dive the Sapona shipwreck
Sapona has quite an interesting history on the shores of Bimini. Built after World War I ended, it was retired and bought out by a private buyer. The owner turned Sapona into a storage container which doubled as an illegal business of rum-running during the Prohibition Age.
With its proximity to Florida, the business boomed, but then a hurricane left it damaged beyond repair. It was given back to the government and used as a U.S. Air Force target for bomb drop training.
After five Air Force men suspiciously disappeared while checking the damage of a drop one afternoon, the Air Force quit using the site altogether. Now, it stands as one of the Bahamas most interesting shipwreck dives for snorkelers and advanced scuba divers.
Obviously, jutting half-way out of the sea, it is not too deep for anyone to access.
3. Participate in the numerous Bimini watersports
Bimini is popular for its menu of wide-ranging motion watersports. Whether it is windsurfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, parasailing, or any number of other watersports, adrenaline junkies will for sure have their fair share of action.
Most resorts provide free rental for most of the aforementioned activities. However, if you are not staying at a resort or don’t have a day pass, there are companies on the beaches which do rentals of this equipment.
4. Chase wild Atlantic spotted dolphins
Here, the water looks even clearer and more turquoise than a swimming pool. It is remarkable. And the dolphins must think so, too, because you can regularly spot them popping out of the water.
If they are acting extra courageous, sometimes snorkelers can slip into the water to swim side-by-side with them. Often, there are 25 dolphins or more at once. Ask a local tour operator where the best place to spot dolphins is.
5. Spend an afternoon on Radio Beach
We know, we know. Radio Beach will be packed to the brim. At least, during peak season. Yet, it never really feels like it. If having people on a beach really bothers you, we suggest trying different beaches around the area. Keep walking along Radio Beach and you will soon run into two connected beaches which are usually less busy, though not any less known; Blister Beach and Spook Hill Beach.
Radio Beach, being one of the hubs of tourism in Bimini, can be quite entertaining for a few hours during any given afternoon.
6. Go deep sea fishing
Bimini is known as the fishing capital of the world. And for good reason! Bimini and the surrounding region has seen 50 record-setting catches. But deep sea fishing isn’t the only variety, either. Along with big game fishing, vacationers also have the option to go reef fishing, bonefishing, offshore fishing, fishing for groupers, and more.
If you are into fishing, you may have to take a day tour or half-day tour where a guide will show you around to the best fishing spots along the island. Otherwise, you can hire your own charter for the day depending on your
7. Relax at Bimini Beach Club Beach
Sit back and chill at this quiet and calm beachfront club. Afterward, feel free to take a dip in the crystal clear, blue waters of Bimini Beach Club’s secluded beach. This beach is located in South Bimini.
There aren’t many beach clubs on the island which are open to the public like Bimini Beach Club.
8. Visit the Atlantis Rejuvenation Center (ARC)
Located in the North of Bimini, the Atlantis Rejuvenation Center provides pampering which will soothe the soul, mind, and body. They also provide plant-based nourishment, yoga classes, energy-healing massages, breathing work, and meditation sessions. The one thing they guarantee is absolute bliss which is good enough for us! You can often even spot dolphins during their early morning and late evening beachside sessions.
9. Spend a sunny afternoon on Honeymoon Harbour Beach
We are not sure how this beach got the name, but it fits quite well once you see it. Perhaps the most turquoise water you will ever see and it is quite secluded because it is only accessed by boat or jet ski.
Local fishermen or a few local businesses will provide you transport for a small fee. It is located just southeast of Bimini.
10. Visit the cays south of Bimini
The cays south of Bimini are what you would consider the nicest and most secluded beaches because of their pristine condition and relatively difficult access. Again, you will have to get a ride on a small boat or jet ski, but once you are there, you will be granted with solitude and dynamic landscapes.
The cays we are talking about south of Bimini include Turtle Rocks, Piquet Rocks, Holm Cay, North Cat Cay, South Cat Cay, and Ocean Cay. If you want to escape the tourism buzz, one of these places is where you should head.
Swimming Pigs Tours to Pig Beach
Bimini beaches offer so much to see and do and not all beaches are crowded. To find out more things to do in Bimini which won’t be in popular guide books, take a day trip to Bahamas with our highly trained pilots.
After, consider seeing the famous Exuma pigs in the Bahamas on one of our Staniel Cay day trips which is not far from Pig Island (Big Major Cay). You can go swimming with pigs Bahamas or feed them from your boat.
