BiminiThe Biminis are the closest Bahamian islands to the United States — just 48 miles from Miami — and a popular getaway for divers and sportfishermen. But like the other Out Islands, the atmosphere is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of South Florida. Even though there aren't as many topside attractions here, divers will find plenty to keep them busy. The Sapona is a standout wreck — quite literally. Most of the ship is actually above water, and the photo opportunity of the giant propeller against the afternoon sun is reason enough to make the trip. Looking to go deep? Some of the walls off Bimini are at intense depths, with the best stuff — the overhangs, gorgonians and largest elephant ear sponges — located at 120 feet.
