This makes it the closest Caribbean island to the United States. Over the decades, its colorful beach houses have lured a constant stream of sunseekers, including the likes of Ernest Hemingway, Martin Luther King and Zane Grey. Want to join the club? From breezy cottages in Alice Town to waterfront villas in Port Royal, Bimini vacation rentals unlock access to your very own slice of paradise.

Things to do

Get toothy at the Bimini Sharklab

Operating for over 25 years, you may recognize the Bimini Biological Field Station Foundation's Sharklab from the Discovery Channel. It was founded by Dr. Samuel H. Gruber, a marine biologist who's passionate about transforming the fearsome reputation of sharks. Visit at low tide for a hands-on encounter with the lab's resident lemon sharks. While Bimini was once thought to conceal the Fountain of Youth, today locals have settled for The Healing Hole. The freshwater lagoon is enclosed within salt water mangrove swamps and renowned for its mythical healing powers. Accessed by boat or kayak at high tide, this one's reserved for adventure seekers only.


Bimini is the big game capital of the Bahamas

Anchored by a bustling marina, Alice Town is the archipelago's lively capital. It's dotted with brightly-painted Caribbean villas, with most residents zipping around on golf carts. Bimini is coveted as the big game-fishing capital of the Bahamas, with the chance to reel-in monster-sized tuna, snapper and wahoo. In fact, the islands hold a myriad of world-record catches. In town you'll find plenty of local operators offering deep-sea fishing trips and private charters. After a long day at sea, there's nothing better than a sunset seafood BBQ on the deck of your Bimini vacation rentals villa.


Gulf Stream summers in Bimini

Thanks to its position in the middle of the Gulf Stream, Bimini enjoys sultry weather throughout the year. High season falls from spring to summer, when scores of yachts, fishing charters and pleasure boats cruise in from South Florida. The seas are calm which makes for ideal deep-sea fishing conditions. Dreaming of a Bahamian getaway? With beach-chic decor and spacious living areas, luxury Bimini vacation rentals are big enough to house the whole family.

Natural features

Spot the rare Bimini Boa

At just 50 miles from Miami Beach, Bimini is a mere hop, skip and a jump across the Atlantic Ocean. It's the westernmost chain of the Bahamas, a sun-kissed subtropical archipelago known for its pristine beaches, lush forests, spectacular coral reefs and aquamarine ocean trenches. While North Bimini settlements like Alice Town have an upbeat feel, South Bimini is quieter and more nature-oriented. It's home to the rugged Bimini Nature Trail, where you could spot endemic Bimini Boas basking in the sunshine.
