The Biminis are the Bahamas closest link to the United States, with the nearest island just over 50 miles off the coast of Miami.  Because of this, much of the activity revolves around sailboats approaching from the United States, either for just a day of sailing, or for those headed to the islands to do some deep sea fishing.  Those who choose to stay awhile will find other activities like scuba diving, museum tours, and sightseeing through laid back towns like Alice Towns to be ideal.
