Bimini's main community, Alice Town, is at North Bimini's southern end. It's colorful, painted in happy Caribbean pastels, but has lately taken on a glory-gone look. In a prominent location stand the ruins of the Compleat Angler Hotel, Ernest Hemingway's famous haunt, which burned down in 2006. A short walk away is the Bimini Native Straw and Craft Market, which bustles on weekends and during fishing tournaments.
In quick succession Alice Town turns into Bailey Town, then Porgy Bay —these three towns are separated only by signs heralding the change. Toward King's Highway's north end, north of Alice Town, you'll see bars, grocery shops, clothing stores, the pink medical center, and a group of colorful fruit stalls. This part of the island, from Bailey Town to the Bimini Bay Resort, is clean, fresh, and lively.
