The charming island(s) of Bimini is a local favorite, with golf carts as the main mode of the transportation and a ferry to get between to the two main islands (North & South Bimini). This island hideaway is the most western island of the Bahamas and the closest point to mainland US. Peace, tranquility and nature. No wonder it was the island of choice for Ernest Hemingway & Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. Western Air offers flights between Nassau and Bimini.
