Bimini Sands Resort & Marina on South Bimini, Bahamas
Announces New Bonefishing & Fly-Fishing Vacation Packages
South Bimini, Bahamas - Bimini, a Bahamas “Out Island” that's just 50 miles from South Florida, is famous for its world-class bonefishing and saltwater fly-fishing. Now, Bimini Sands Resort & Marina announces affordable new all-inclusive Bonefishing & Fly-Fishing Vacation Packages combining two or more full days of fishing with a professional Bimini bonefish guide, fully equipped condo accommodations, and all meals and beverages.

In addition, the resort has opened a new U.S. reservations center, making it easier for anglers to book their trips.
The flats around Bimini are legendary waters for hunting the elusive bonefish. Monster “bones” have been taken there—including a 16 lb., 3 oz. world record.
