Bimini is actually two islands separated by a channel leading to the sea and nearby Gulf Stream. South Bimini has the airport and some development, but most of the action has always been on north Bimini. Because of its proximity to Florida, just 50 miles to the west, Bimini was a primary trans-shipment point for liquor during prohibition and was visited by Al Capone and other assorted rum-running characters.
The protected harbour on North Bimini has been a popular yachting destination for years. Huge Bluefin tuna used to run up the side of the Gulf Stream attracting the likes of Ernest Hemingway and others who stayed at the famous Compleat Angler Hotel and fished from the docks of the Bimini Big Game Club. The hotel burned down some years back but the nostalgia still exists around the Big Game Club in Alice Town.
