Bimini The closest of the Bahamas Islands to the US mainland, Bimini is just 88 kilometers east of Miami. It is known for being the “Big Game Fishing Capital of The Bahamas”. The novels “The Old Man and the Sea” and “Islands in the Stream” by Ernest Hemingway were inspired by his time on the island. Today it is perhaps best known for its deep sea fishing tournaments which take place from March to September each year. www.bahamas.com © Bahamas Tourism Ministry
