Last Minute Summer Escape to Bimini, Bahamas

L
AAlthough the start of school marks the end of vacation for families, it’s also the best time for a last minute summer escape to enjoy a few more sun-filled days. And what better way to hold on to the sun for a bit more longer than with a quick escape to the Hidden Gem of the Bahamas? Say goodbye to your favorite time of the year while surrounded by glistening turquoise waters, vibrant local culture, and activities that beam with fun. This may be your last chance to spend quality time together before settling into a routine and a busy work schedule. So whether your family prefers luxury, adventure or both, we have the top reasons to cap off your summer in Bimini, Bahamas.

Carefree Island Life

In Bimini, it’s basically summer year-round, making it the perfect place to soak in every last drop of that laid-back summer sun. In this low-key island, you’re free (and encouraged) to kick back, relax, and take your sweet time to do whatever you please. The best way to really embrace island life is by taking the whole gang to explore the quaint streets of South Bimini, easily navigable by bike or golf cart. You don’t need a schedule, just wander around and you’ll discover locals’ friendly faces, rustic conch shacks, and historic treasures like the colorful Dolphin House made entirely from sand, shell, and sea glass. Your breezy, stress-free exploration of Bimini isn’t complete without a pit stop at some of the gorgeous beaches that line the island. With seashell hunting, snorkeling, or just floating among the waves, your last days of summer have never felt so carefree.

Watery Wonders

Just because summer’s end is just around the corner, that doesn’t mean the heat in Bimini is simmering down anytime soon. Lucky for you, the resort’s glimmering pools are the perfect way to cool off. Our favorite is the lagoon-style, ground floor pool where you can watch yachts float by and swim up to your favorite cocktail. Pools are fun, but we know kids love to explore! Bimini’s turquoise waters will fuel your family’s adventurous spirit and keep that summer thirst for adrenaline going just a bit longer. Quench it at Paradise Beach, with a glass-bottom kayaking tour or a bumpy banana boat ride. Make your last summer adventure worth the memories and snorkel through the S.S. Sapona, a Prohibition-era sunken shipwreck now home to schools of tropical fish. Make friends with more creatures of the sea, like wild dolphins or stingrays – both exciting experiences that will continue to be treasured long after the end of summer.

Tantalizing Summer Flavors

Bimini’s the perfect destination to treat your palate to the last taste of summer. Celebrate with the season’s peak pleasures, like cooling fruity drinks, sizzling grilled favorites, and seafood caught and prepared right before your very eyes. Indulge in signature summer comfort foods, like the Loaded Jerk Chicken Fries from Oasis or tempting tropical watermelon and pomegranate cocktails from Money Business. Have an ocean-to-table feast with the whole family at Luna Beach with local snapper, grouper, conch, and lobster paired with the most spectacular ocean views. End your summer on a sweet note with a taste of our famous Bimini French toast made with decadent Bimini bread dough, drizzled with raspberry coulis, and warmed to perfection.

Easy-To-Reach Destination

When traveling with the fam on a last-minute getaway, you want an easy, stress-free destination that’s not too far away from home and won’t break the bank. Only 50 miles away from South Florida, less than 30 minutes by plane, and 2 hours by ferry, Bimini is the best place to get the most out of summer’s last long weekend. And with our New Fly & Stay Package from Miami, we’re making it even easier to experience Bimini’s endless sunshine. Get away for a 1-3 night stay plus a non-stop round-trip flight.
