Bimini is the westernmost district of the Bahamas composed of a chain of islands located about 53 miles (81 km) due east of Miami, Florida.
Bimini is the closest point in the Bahamas to the mainland United States and approximately 137 miles (209 km) west-northwest of Nassau.
Bimini consists of two main islands—North Bimini Island and South Bimini Island—and numerous cays. The history of Bimini is as fascinating as the islands themselves. Just 50 miles from the United States, they served as a convenient offshore speakeasy and liquor store during prohibition. Rumrunners used to store their stash on the nearby shores. And speaking of rum, Ernest Hemingway called Bimini his summer home.
Jimmy Buffett spent time here while writing his book, and Martin Luther King, Jr. even composed parts of his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech while sailing with local boat builder, Ansil, who still lives on the islands today. Bimini is best place for snorkeling

Visitors to the Bahamas would be unwise to make a trip without sampling some of the local cuisine as the islands are renowned for producing some of the finest food in the Caribbean. Dishes are strongly and distinctly flavoured and invariably based around locally caught sea produce and tropical fruits and vegetables.
Rums, Liqueurs & Specialty Drinks
Although rum came north from Cuba and Jamaica, Bahamians quickly adopted it as their national alcoholic beverage. Using their imagination, they invented several local drinks, including the Yellow Bird, the Bahama Mama, and the Goombay Smash.
The Yellow Bird is made with creme de banana liqueur, Vat 19 rum, orange juice, pineapple juice, apricot brandy, and Galliano. A Bahama Mama has Vat 19, citrus juice (perhaps pineapple, too), bitters, a dash of nutmeg, crème de cassis, and a hint of grenadine. The Goombay Smash usually consists of coconut rum, pineapple juice, lemon juice, Triple Sec, Vat 19, and a dash of simple syrup.
Exuma is a collection of small islands of which the largest and most significant is Grand Exuma. The islands are famed for their beauty and tranquillity, remaining largely unspoiled and with few major tourist developments. Places of interest among the islands include the Salt Stone monument on Stocking Island, Stocking Island itself and Hurricane Hole where cave diving is possible.
