This is number one on our list, and most probably on yours. And for good reason. While most of the northern United States is freezing with temperatures in the low-thirties to forties, the temperature in Bimini in December-January is in the mid-seventies and high sixties. With low heat and humidity, it’s the perfect winter escape where you will be able to enjoy swimming, snorkeling, diving, and more under the warm sun. This year, the only snowman you’ll be making will be out of the soft, white sands of Bimini.
Relaxation for All
Say goodbye to holiday stress and hello to relaxation! During this time of the year, it’s easy to get wrapped up in making lists and checking them twice. This year, drop your to-do list and feel free to relax in paradise without all those extra holiday pressures. Whether it’s going on a kayaking adventure with the whole family or booking a soothing day at Serenity Spa and Salon for two, your days will be filled with stress-free, quality time with your loved ones. After all, isn’t that what the holidays are truly about?
Food is always one of the main attractions during the holidays, and that is no exception in Bimini. This year, get a taste for traditional Bahamian holiday foods that are as unique as the islands themselves. Besides turkey, a traditional dinner includes baked fresh ham topped with pineapple, brown sugar and cherries. Accompanying holiday favorites include: baked macaroni and cheese, pickled onions, garlic pork, and potato salad. And to top off the celebration, try a special holiday drink, like ginger beer, a classic Caribbean sorrel, or sweet potato fly.
The Junkanoo New Year’s Day Parade
New Year’s Day is when the already colorful island of Bimini becomes even more vibrant. The New Year’s Day Junkanoo Parade is a spectacular native street festival held in Alice Town of North Bimini. It’s a major cultural festival celebrated all throughout the Bahamas to commemorate life and freedom. Participants wear elaborate, colorful dresses and dance to island rhythms. With the sounds of horns, goat-skin drums, cow bells, and whistles filling the streets, your holiday celebration in Bimini will be the most festive of them all.
