Make Bimini Your Winter Getaway
Did you know that out of all the islands in the Bahamas, Bimini is the only one that has continued to see a rise in tourism throughout this economic recession? More and more people are finding out that little Bimini has big opportunities for fun, adventure and relaxation while still staying within your budget. One secret that Bimini still hides from many people though, is that this island is just as enjoyable in the Fall & Winter as it is during the Summer boating season.
Whether it’s a quick weekend getaway or a two-week family vacation, Bimini offers tons of things to do all year round. And if you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to live on your own private paradise, Bimini’s “off season” allows for some of the most peaceful, serene escapes you could ever desire.
Here at Bimini Sands, we have everything you need to make Bimini your year-round vacation destination. We’ve got the prettiest beaches on the island right out your back door, three great restaurants to keep your taste-buds satisfied, boat rentals for those who want to explore on their own, and our Recreation & Activity Center offers a wide variety of adventures for the whole family, from kayaking Bimini’s pristine mangrove creeks to encountering wild sharks on the reefs.

Bahamas Passes New Law to Protect Sea Turtles
The Bahamian government took a big leap forward with their efforts in marine conservation this year by legislating the full protection of all sea turtles within the Bahamas.
For years the Hawksbill turtle has been protected in Bahamian waters, but there are other species of sea turtle that are common here that now have a new safe haven.
As of September 1, 2009, it is unlawful to harass, possess, sell or buy sea turtles and their parts, including their eggs. All seven species of sea turtle that exist on the planet are listed as “Endangered” by conservation groups, and five of those seven species have been reported to use the Bahamas for either feeding or nesting. Hopefully the sea turtle populations will soon start recovering as more people recognize how fragile and important these ancient marine reptiles are.
