Fodor's Expert Review Shell Beach
Arguably Bimini's most pristine beach, Shell Beach lies centrally on South Bimini's undeveloped west coast. Head here for seclusion. The beach stretches out, long and natural, and calm waters typically prevail. The snorkeling is also good where reefs are. As the name implies, the beach is strewn with colorful seashells. A small picnic shelter is the only concession to facilities, but head north to Bimini Sands Resort or south to South Bimini Beach Club and you'll find restaurants, bars, pools, and shade. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude; snorkeling; sunsets; swimming.
