Welcome to a Paradise like no Other
Once a favorite hideaway for notable figures including Martin Luther King, Jr. and Earnest Hemingway, the tiny island of Bimini, known as the “Gateway to the Bahamas,” is located just 50 miles east of Miami, but is a world away from the everyday. Located on the north end of the seven mile island is the newly opened Resorts World Bimini, a 750-acre property that is home to white sand beaches and crystal clear turquoise waters. The resort boasts a variety of amenities, including six restaurants and bars, two pools, the largest marina complex in The Bahamas, and a world-class casino, the first with water and marina views. Come summer 2016, the final phase of the new 305-room Hilton at Resorts World Bimini will be completed, bringing with it seven additional new restaurants and lounges, a lazy river pool, luxury spa, and a rooftop pool with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and Bimini Bay.
Meaning “mother of many waters” in Taino, the language of the Native Americans that once inhabited the island, the surrounding ocean is just as integral to life in Bimini today as it was centuries ago. Divers from all over the world come to explore the underwater world of Bimini that includes colorful reefs, mystical shipwrecks and even what some claim to be is the ancient, lost City of Atlantis. Those looking for a bit more adventure on their dive can choose to swim with some of the 45 different species of sharks that migrate through the waters. Bimini is one of the few places in the world where visitors can swim with wild bottlenose dolphins.
The waters off of Bimini are also brimming with tuna, swordfish, wahoo and the elusive white and blue marlin, so much so that it’s commonly referred to as the “Big Game Fishing Capital of the World.” Of course, visitors also have the option to partake in more traditional water activities, including access to Jet Skis, kayaks, and banana boat rides.
For those wishing to stay dry, guests can simply sunbathe on one of the many stunning beaches or explore the island’s culture and charm with a quick golf cart ride into town.
Whether your passion is on land, in the water, or in its storied past, there is no shortage of activities to be enjoyed while in Bimini. Resorts World Bimini has an onsite excursion facility that offers equipment rentals, personal instruction, and guided tours to help make your daydream a reality.
