Blister Beach

Great snorkeling opportunities have been the trademark of this Blister Beach, although many would argue that the swimming and sunning is also top-notch. Located away from any metropolitan areas, you'll find fewer crowds here than on some other Bimini beaches, making it a favorite among locals.

Positioned toward the center of the island of North Bimini, Blister Beach is on the North coast of the island, You might want to drop by whether or not you're staying in the vicinity. Blister Beach stands out from other beaches because it's the ideal location for escaping over-crowded hangouts in the town proper. Many of the other beaches in the Bahamas offer views of the sea that are just as pretty, but are usually more cramped since they're near some of the most popular hotels.

How to Access The Beach
A trail runs north from Spook Hill Beach through the mangroves and continues all the way to the northernmost point on the island. Whenever you find that special spot in the sun, step off the trail and into the sand.
