3 days enjoying Bimini on a luxury yacht

Conch Salad
Day 1

Start relaxing

“Swim, eat, drink, work, read, talk, read, fish, fish, swim, drink, sleep.” That’s how former resident Ernest Hemingway described life on the islands of Bimini. It sounds like the perfect escape from Miami to us, especially when that escapism is all only 50 miles away. Here’s our itinerary for three idyllic days in the Caribbean.

Day 1

Depart Miami in good time for a noon arrival at Bimini; an airport on South Bimini lets you join your yacht there if time is tight. Now rejuvenate. They say the magnesium-, lithium- and sulphur-rich water which bubbles from a spring makes Healing Hole at Bonefish Creek a natural spa pool. Even if not, a swim among the mangroves makes Miami feel a world away. In the evening go for a stroll around pretty Alice Town, all pastel clapperboard houses and conch salad. You’ll find the Bahamas’ most famous dish – diced conch marinated in lime juice, salt, garlic and red onions – in every restaurant, but locals say Joe’s Conch Stand prepares the best. Or Stuart’s. Try them both in Bailey Town a half mile north.
