The latest issue of National Geographic TRAVELER magazine features an article titled "Great Winter Escapes," and names the islands of Bimini among their list of 15 destinations that fit their ultimate winter vacation criteria, "inspired natural settings, authentic to the core, full of local flavor and strong tradition."
Describing Bimini as an island "poised for eco-tourism," Bimini Sands' very own Bimini Nature Trail gets an honorable mention in the article. Kayaking through the mangroves is another highlight named in the magazine, and the Bimini Sands Recreation & Activity Center offers the best kayaking trips anywhere on the island. In fact, last year Bimini Sands was a finalist in the Bahamas prestigious Cacique Awards in the category of "Sustainable Tourism" for developing Bimini's first comprehensive eco-tourism program.
