Additional Information

Find more Bimini information on the sites listed below.

Bimini is a district of the Bahamas composed of a chain of islands. The largest islands are North Bimini and South Bimini. The District of Bimini also includes Cay Sal Bank, more than 62 miles (100 km) further south, which is geographically not a part of the Bimini Islands but a separate unit. North Bimini is about seven miles (11 km) long and 700 feet (210 m) wide. Its main settlement is Alice Town, a collection of shops, restaurants, and bars surrounding a single road known as "The King's Highway."

South Bimini houses an airstrip, South Bimini Airport, and offers a quiet alternative to the slow bustle of North Bimini. South Bimini is also home to the world famous Bimini Biological Field Station, known locally as the SharkLab. The Sharklab is famous for its research on marine ecosystems, in particular those supporting various species of sharks.

Bimini is located about 50 miles (80 km) east of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and is the closest point in the Bahamas to the mainland United States.
