"Bimini... Hemingway's hideout" Bimini District by pabertra

Bimini District Travel Guide: 51 reviews and 79 photos

Bimini consists of two tiny islands (North and South Bimini) connected by a five minute ferry service. The islands are still relatively uncommercialized, though a few developments have made their way here. The people are very friendly and welcome the handful of tourists they see graciously. You will feel very safe and welcome here. These islands are infamous in that Hemingway used to hide out here, go deep sea fishing, and his pictures still grace the walls of a local watering hole. The island is NOT easily accessible...if you arrive here it is generally by private plane or boat.

Flying to Bimini

I flew to Bimini in a Columbia 400. The airport in South Bimini has a fairly long runway and is easy to get in and out of. No control tower here so don't forget to announce your landing ;) Customs and immigration is open until 5 pm most days, but call to confirm or if you have an after hours landing they will meet you for a nominal fee.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Uncommercialized, friendly islanders
  • Cons:Resorts are limited, beaches aren't manicured
  • In a nutshell:Casual island paradise
