Photographer's Note

I have just returned from very busy holidays in Florida. Among other attractions we took a one-day trip to the Bahamas by ferry. We went to the closest Bahamian island from Miami, Bimini. It is just two hours away by ferry from Miami.

Surprisingly it is hard to find any consistent information about Bimini. Even Google Maps got it completely wrong and if you type Bimini in Google Maps search, you end up somewhere else -far away from the island. Names of the beaches vary depending on the source as well. I got a FODOR’S guidebook to Bahamas but it didn’t help that much.
FRS ferries stop now at a pier which is relatively newly build in the northern part of North Bimini Island which belongs mostly to Hilton. If you don’t opt for renting a golf cart then you are by default taken straight to the Luna Beach. Luna Beach is I believe also a new name given to a beach which was quite recently reorganized. It has a wild part (in this photo) but it also has a developed part where you can rent umbrellas or go for a great quality meal with the stunning view.

Although it was just a day trip I could talk about it for ages, but maybe I will keep some information for other photos…

This is the sixth photo from this island on TrekEarth.
