We’re spending some time this week exploring the three small islands that make up Bimini in the Bahamas. Well, Bimini is technically in the Bahamas, and is the outermost Bahamian island group, but Bimini is so darn close to Miami, just 53 miles, that it doesn’t feel like you’re traveling all the way to the Bahamas at all. In fact, Floridians often head out in their own little boats and make the trek over to Bimini for the day, to get in some great fishing, or simply to relax. When can you say you simply popped over the Bahamas for the day? How cool!
The beaches of Bimini make it well worth the short trip. This island chain might be close to Florida, but it is pure Bahamas in terms of its tropical beauty and level of relaxation. Bimini is broken up into three islands: North Bimini, South Bimini and East Bimini. And each island has its own incredible beaches; you can take plenty of time to explore them all. Alice Town, for example, is a spot on North Bimini that is home to three very popular and gorgeous beaches that are linked side by side on the west side of the island. Spook Hill Beach, Blister Beach and Radio Beach run continuously between Alice Town and Bailey Town and each beach is prettier than the last. These three beaches stretch forever with fine, soft, powdery white sand that will turn anyone into a permanent beach lover. And spending the day wandering around Alice Town is so much fun.
