Bimini, the Gateway to the Bahamas, is a tiny island (at some points just over 200 yards wide) set amidst a magnificent blue sea.  Bordered on the west by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream and eastward by the Great Bahama Bank, Bimini has traditionally been referred to as the big game fishing capitol of the world.
     Discovered by Ponce de Leon in 1512 while searching for the fountain of youth (some believers still visit the site today) Bimini has long remained a popular destination for adventurers of all types.  Pirates and rum runners took refuge here.  Ernest Hemmingway made it a favorite retreat in the 1930's.  Thousands more have come to catch prized game fish, explore the undersea world or simply do nothing at all.
     Alice Town is at the center of most of Bimini's activity.  Everything is close so walking is the usual method of getting place to place (though some prefer golf cart).  Restaurants specializing in local seafood and other dishes are situated throughout the settlement.  Shopping consists of duty free liquors and perfume, native artwork, and a Bahamian straw market featuring a wide variety of souvenirs.  Several bars and night spots complete with island music provide the evenings entertainment.  Traveling to Bimini usually begins in South Florida.  Current services include Silver Airways and Balaeria Caribbean ferry. Proof of citizenship and picture I.D. are required upon entry.  Casual attire is the norm with summer temperatures in the mid 80's and winter in the mid 70's.  U.S. currency is used freely, so there are no exchange concerns.  Special needs should be addressed before arrival; Bimini is a small island and facilities are limited.
