Porgy Bay Beach

One of the closest beaches in the Bahamas to the United States, Porgy Bay Beach is actually rarely visited. Located north of Bailey Town on North Bimini Island, there is not much here other than sand and water.

Positioned in the heart of the island of North Bimini, Porgy Bay Beach is on the North West coast of the island, You should think about stopping by even if you are not staying particularly close by. The surrounding region is not overflowing with tourists, however, that doesn't mean you won't find a fair amount of excitements at this beach.

How to Access The Beach

Once on North Bimini Island, it is easy to get to the beach. Getting to the island though generally requires a boat.

Amenities and Ambiance

Situated right in front of a developing area, Porgy Bay will one day have countless amenities. Today, however, it is remote. As long as all you want is sand and water, and maybe some seclusion, then Porgy Bay is a fine choice.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here.

Porgy Bay Beach offers those who visit a quiet and peaceful place to escape, as the surrounding area is more rural than urban.
