Bimini Geography: 40 Miles from Florida
The tiny Biminis, situated 40 miles (80km) off the coast of Florida, is home to the finest fishing in the Bahamas, that attract many a sportsmen to the championship fishing tournaments held year round. Bimini is where the waters of Florida’s Gulfstream meets The Bahama Banks.
Bimini is made up of two main islands, North Bimini and South Bimini. North Bimini has most of the population while South Bimini, where the airport is located, was used mainly for farming. North Bimini is also home to Bimini Bay Resort & Casino. The other islands next to Bimini are Gun Cay, located nine miles south of Bimini; Cat Cay, one mile south-east of Bimini and a port-of-entry for The Bahamas, and Ocean Cay where aragonite, a pure limestone, is mined from the ocean floor.
