The beaches are just beautiful and most are free. If you don’t mind a bit of a walk from the ship, you can go on the beach at the port. Being it’s a new island port, there is a lot of confusion. The tram drivers failed to tell people that the casinos and shops were not open and dropped guests off. Not too organized yet. If you hop on the tram it just makes a constant round trip to the beaches, casino at the Hilton, and other stops. Easy on and off and free!!! You can take a cab to the straw market from the port for $5 each way. There didn’t look like much to do but swim at the beach. There was also not much shopping that we saw. You can tell it’s a new port. My guess is that when they work the kinks out, it will be a favorite port for many beach goers. The big negative is they made a mask mandate in the island. You can take it off to swim but it must be worn off the ship and such. All in all a nice day at Bimini 😊
This island was beautiful organized and easy to get around thank you to Bimini for having free trams to go to all the free beaches that they have to offer after reading a few post about jellyfish we bought special sunblock but we did not need it we were there all day and never saw one or any seaweed the water was crystal clear we went to the 360 beach you can get right off the tram or you can also go to the resorts and both beaches are free you just don’t have a chair or umbrella that is extra great beach day there can’t wait to go again everyone was super nice and welcoming
Great beach day at the resort, beautiful white sand and crystal clear beaches. This was an awesome port of call. Would definitely go again. Great choice
Had an awesome time! Rented a golf cart for $60 for the entire day. Must go to Stuarts for conch salad, crack conch, and “knock out punch.” Best beach ever!! Can’t wait to return!
We LOVED Bimini! We did the Beach 360 experience (umbrella and two chairs). The beach and water were exquisite. We loved everything about this experience! Food and alcohol were available for purchase (roughly $12 a pop). Word of caution - secure your belongings with a chair safe if you plan to get in the water. A woman on our cruise had her purse stolen on the beach. We always bring a chair safe with us.
Did the 360 beach. Water was beautiful. Luckily didn’t see jellyfish. A little pricey for drinks and food. Chair and umbrella was all we needed. Didn’t see any port shops. Took free tram to beach.
We booked the Reef Shark Snorkel through Carnival. The beaches and ocean here are so pristine! Bimini Blue Adventures was the tour group. Highly recommended!!
This port had only been taking Cruise ships for 4 weeks by the time we were there. Since we were visiting the port on the second of the B2B, we just explored. We took the free tram, which was great. It stops at 4 locations, the Casino and 3 beaches, then loops back to the pier. It was maybe 20 minutes for the loop though the accommodate what is needed, so not on a strict schedule. There are multiple trams so not really much of a wait. After that, we took a taxi to "downtown". $5 each. There isn't really a downtown, just 4 shops selling souvenirs. I guess if you want items that say "Bimini" this is the only place to get them. This is a good stop for Radio beach. The water looked super clear. There are chairs for rent along with a beach bar and assorted deep fried food. On the taxi ride back, the driver Anita Harris took us on a brief history - sight seeing tour of the island. She did not ask for any additional money, but I did tip her. She works for Harmonia which is a taxi and vehicle rental company on the island. She wanted me to pass her contact number, and hope it is appropriate 1-242-802-8110. The island is new to the large cruise ships so I suspect it will develop more. On our second trip to the island the following week, we just took the tram to the last stop, which was the public beach. I would say it was clearer than HMC and just as calm. Needless to say, it was nice. The chairs are for rent, but too expensive in my opinion. Food options are limited, but there are some water toys to rent, if interested. Something that I would recommend as an option, you can rent a golf cart for the day, which will cost you $60. This might be a good option and something I would consider in the future. Remember to drive on the left side of the road!

Not a lot to do. First we rode the free trolley. Found a golf cart to rent. Went to Alice town. Straw market was a joke. High prices and no deals like on other islands. Beach was beautiful. Prices at places out side of the resort world for food and drinks was pretty good. Food and drink in resort World was very high. Other than the beach nothing really to do.
This was the worst! Once again, our bubble excursion of swimming with the stingrays was cancelled (now for the 3rd time on our trip!!!). We disembarked ship and found there is absolutely NOTHING to do in the area. One store selling six dollar waters! What make Carnival think Bimini is a good place to stop? Kids were confined to ship.
