8 Unique Things to do in Bimini
Below, we will break down all the special places in Bimini for your trip to Bahamas.
1. Try many in-house activities at Resorts World Bimini
Resorts World Bimini is a huge resort that covers over half the island’s area. With 305 luxury rooms, nearly a dozen bars and restaurants, and three glamorous pools, it is safe to say this place is a spectacle to see.
In the resort, there are plenty of in-house activities that many of the other resorts also offer. However, the sheer size of Resorts World Bimini makes it worth a visit. With a long stretch of white sand beach, excellent coral reefs nearby, and being so near to Florida, Resorts World Bimini has become one of the most popular areas on the island.
2. Enjoy an excursion on a one day cruise to Bimini
Even if you are not vacationing in Bimini, you still have the opportunity to make it there for a one day cruise to Bimini. By way of our Bahamas air charter, you can fly to Bimini and see all the island has to offer and be back in the comfort of your own hotel or resort in Florida by nightfall.
Fly around the Bahamas islands for a day, stop in Bimini for a few hours, and see one of the best views known to man from the sky.
3. Take a swimming pigs tours to see Exuma pigs in the Bahamas
While on your tour to Bimini, take the plane a little further to the Exumas where you can see Pig Beach on Big Major Cay (Pig Island). This is a popular spot among all Bahamas tourists. Everyone wants to see these beautiful pink pigs swimming in the tropical turquoise sea.
Other places around the country have imported pigs to beaches to try to bring in tourist dollars, but the pigs at Big Major Cay are the original Bahamas swimming pigs. You can fly to Staniel Cay and get a quick five-minute boat taxi to Pig Island as conveniently as it can be. If you go, we suggest arriving early to beat the tourist ferries to the island.
4. Visit the Bimini Healing Hole
One of the most popular Bahamas attractions, the freshwater pond known as the Bimini Healing Hole, is only accessible by boat as it sits within saltwater mangrove swamps.
The pool is known to have healing properties reported by those who have gone swimming in it. Whether or not this myth is true is up for debate. It is something you have to determine for yourself!
When you are ready for a break from the beach, this is one of the more interesting things to do in Bimini.
5. Track down history along Bimini Road (Lost City of Atlantis)
So, it is not clear whether or not this rock formation is from the Lost City of Atlantis or not, but the stretch of flat, straight limestone cuts underwater near Bimini seems too interesting not to wonder whether or not it was once a highway to the lost city.
You have to travel to Bimini and take a snorkel trip to see for yourself. There is plenty of marine life in the area to make it super intriguing as an excursion on your Bimini cruise.
A trip out to Bimini Road is one of the more educational things to do in Bimini.
6. Follow in the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway in his summer home
A few interesting historical characters have found inspiration in the Gateway to the Bahamas. Martin Luther King, Jr. is one who wrote his Nobel Prize acceptance speech while visiting Bimini in 1964.
The famous author, Ernest Hemingway, is another who saw Bimini as a bit more than just a one-time visit. Bimini became Hemingway’s creative escape during his years in Florida. He called it his summer house for years and created a well-worn personal footpath during his time in Bimini.
You can visit Bimini and wander around Hemingway’s stomping grounds during the time he spent in Bimini.
7. Try out some of the less visited Bimini beaches
Radio Beach, although beautiful, is one of the most visited beaches in Bimini and even in most of the Bahamas. It is no wonder people flock there; it is on the nearest island to the U.S. and near the Bimini cruise port — not to mention it is absolutely picturesque.
However, if you are more interested in secluded beaches, you are in luck because Bimini is big on white sand beaches. Most of the west coast of the north half of the island has beaches beautiful enough to be the cover of magazines.
If you continue down Radio Beach, you will soon run into Blister Beach and, after that, Spook Hill Beach. Though these are still not normally empty, you can still escape the immediate proximity rush.
Alice Town Beach is also nice. And there are also a few nearby cays with white sand and coral reefs which would be the most secluded beach experiences. Sometimes, it is nice to find the not-so-popular things to do in Bimini.
8. Take Exumas day trips excursions
There are so many day trip opportunities from Bimini. The Exumas are teeming with photogenic scenes of the tropics. And you are not just limited to Staniel Cay and Pig Beach. There are places all over the Exumas waiting to be explored.
Compass Cay offers a sanctuary to walk the seafloor with reef sharks. Bitter Guana Cay gives you the opportunity to track down the last of an endangered species of Northern Bahamian Rock Iguanas. If you are keen, one of the most easily-accessible sunken plane wrecks is found not far-off Norman’s Cay. It is said it was used to transport drugs in-between South America and Miami during the years of Pablo Escobar’s reign of the drug cartels.
These are only a few of the examples of adventures awaiting your Exuma day trip. You can book the most time-efficient tours with Bahamas Air Tours and we will make sure you witness the most for your money.
