Bimini Islands | Things to see and do
- See the Sapona Shipwreck. The SS Sapona was a concrete-hulled cargo steamer that ran aground near the Bimini Islands during a storm in 1926. In addition, the ship’s wreck is a popular site for scuba diving and snorkeling.
- Take a dip in the Fountain of Youth. Spanish explorer Juan Ponce De Leon supposedly discovered this famous site, and the waters are believed to have youth-restoring properties.
- Walk the mile-long Bimini Nature Trail at the Bimini Sands Resort & Marina. Here, a professional guide shares fun facts about the island’s indigenous plants and animals. Additionally, self-guided tours are available along the trail. It is an easy route and takes about a half hour to complete.
- Visit the Dolphin House Museum, a Bahamian national treasure and a well-known landmark. This “Poem In Stone” is a dolphin and ocean-inspired museum built over the last 27 years using recycled, salvaged, and donated materials. The museum is still under construction.
- Sunbathe on Radio Beach. This lovely beach has soft white sand and calm water. The nearby coral reef protects the beach from ocean currents, making it an excellent spot for wading and swimming. Near the beach, you can purchase ready-made seafood and have a picnic.
- Try Conch Salad. Joe’s Conch Shack is said to have the best recipe in the Bahamas.
- Visit the Bimini Islands Museum. The building was once the Commissioner’s Office and jail, but it was abandoned in 1974. It now displays relics such as old cannon balls, photographs of Ernest Hemingway, and artifacts from the old Rod & Gun Club.
