Whether you're walking or riding on your golf cart through the streets of North Bimini, you’ll discover the island’s most prized local spots. Get a taste of Bimini’s staple dish at Stuart’s Conch Stand or Joe’s Conch Shack. Each open-air rustic shack is located right off the beach, sourcing and serving fresh conch salad daily.
Walking or cruising through the island on a golf cart, you’ll discover the Dolphin House and The Bimini Museum, each holding artifacts and memorabilia of the island’s history, including those from famous figures who made Bimini their second home.
Satisfy your sweet tooth with a bite of Bimini bread. Pick up a loaf of this soft, sweet, and buttery bread at a variety of nearby bakeries. You’ll find that many dishes on the island are made with Bimini bread dough, like the succulent pizza from local favorite Edith’s Pizza. This popular restaurant serves freshly baked pies, made with the sweet dough. Top it with the flavors of the sea, including lobster, conch, and shrimp.
Spend five minutes with bonefish legend Ansil Saunders and you’ll hear stories that some can only dream of experiencing for themselves. He holds the IGFA bonefishing record for a 16-pound catch, the 2003 Cacique Award, crafted a handmade shell necklace for the Queen of England, and chatted it up with Muhammad Ali.
Uncover the legend of the S.S. Sapona. Built for WWI but completed too late, this historic artifact turned into a warehouse for alcohol during the Prohibition era until it ran aground in a hurricane. Today, over 80 years later, the S.S. Sapona serves as home to a vibrant array of tropical fish and sea creatures.
Travel by boat just three miles south of Bimini and jump right into the warm water. We’ll teach you more about the history and myths of this famous shipwreck, and let your imagination run wild as you snorkel through the artifact.
