Bigger, with nicer beaches and higher elevation than low-lying North Bimini, South Bimini is nonetheless the quieter of the two islands. Home to the island's only airport, it has a smattering of shops near the ferry landing where boats make regular crossings between the two islands, a short five-minute ride. Bimini Sands Resort is the biggest property on the island with its safe-harbor marina, condos, and nature trail. South of the main resort in Port Royal are 80-plus vacation homes, the South Bimini Beach Club and restaurants, and Neal Watson's Bimini Scuba Center. The resort helps preserve the island's eco-focus by staying low-key and keeping much of its land undeveloped. It also helps maintain the little Fountain of Youth Park, the Sharklab, and beautiful beaches.
