Fodor's Expert Review Bimini Sands Resort & Marina

South Bimini, , South Bimini, Bahamas Fodor's Choice

Overlooking the Straits of Florida on a stunning beach, this well-designed property rents one- to three-bedroom condominiums with direct marina access. The bright, nicely decorated full-self-catering condos have balconies and patios with views of the marina, or the beach overlooked by an infinity pool and sunbathing deck. The Petite Conch, a cozy little restaurant, serves three meals a day, blending Bahamian staples with American favorites. The marina has 60 slips, a fuel dock, a ship's store, tennis, massage, and yoga classes. Customs and Immigration is just 2 miles away at the airport—so boating guests can tie up and clear paperwork without venturing to North Bimini. Besides a great nature trail, Bimini Sands also owns the South Bimini Beach Club with its beach, pool, and three restaurants and bars—and a jazzy-colored bus that starts around 3 pm to take you there for free. The water taxi to North Bimini operates until around midnight (do ask in advance). Boat, golf-cart, and bike rentals are available. The resort is home to Neal Watson's Bimini Scuba Center which offers superb diving and gear, kayaks, and paddleboat rentals at the south beach. The friendly staff can arrange all sorts of fun excursions and activities including fishing.
