Bimini Packed Solid with Tourists During Labor Day Weekend: a Family Getaway in the Bahamas at Bimini Bay Resort

Share Article

Labor Day weekend 2007 was a heightened time for Bahamas travel. Bimini Bay Resort welcomed MarineMax boat owners as well as vacationers from around the world who took advantage of the Caribbean weather and upscale amenities at the resort. The Bimini Customs and Immigration office reported a total of 2,366 tourists to the Bahamian island and Bimini Bay Resort accounted for approximately 1,500 visitors throughout the weekend; thus, the resort contributed to over 60 percent of all tourism in Bimini. These numbers only further illustrate Bimini Bay Resort's contribution to the island's growth in tourism. The continued rise of visitors to the Bahamas is putting the island of Bimini back on the map as a premier boating destination and ideal vacation spot and second home investment.

This has become the place where we spend all our vacations; we have even made great friends here as well. Before purchasing our home in Bimini, I had never been to the island for a vacation - now we come eight to 10 times throughout the year.

    Jim Sumerline, a proud home owner at Bimini Bay Resort, reflects on the Bahamas as a destination: "Bimini, Bahamas is truly paradise. The convenience of living 48 miles from a tropical island is one of many reasons why we purchased a second home at Bimini Bay Resort. Over the past couple of years, this island has really seen a transformation and is attracting tourists and boaters from around the world."

Bimini provides guests with beautiful miles of beaches and laid-back island life, but wins over many visitors because of its close proximity to South Florida. Both the ease of crossing the Bahamian Channel and clearing with onsite customs and immigration at the resort make for a perfect and memorable Labor Day weekend getaway in the Bahamas. Families specifically enjoyed celebrating the commemorative holiday at the bayfront event facility where a variety of activities were offered including visor and flip-flop decorating, canvas bag art, jewelry making, and of course music and delicious food.

Sumerline continues, "This has become the place where we spend all our vacations; we have even made great friends here as well. Before purchasing our home in Bimini, I had never been to the island for a vacation - now we come eight to 10 times throughout the year."

Bimini Bay Resort will continue to contribute to the rising growth of tourism to Bimini in the Bahamas. Guests of the Bahamas can look forward to fishing tournaments and holiday events that are being planned in Bimini for 2008. Bimini Bay looks forward to breaking more records in the future as it continues to expand with the Conrad Hotel, casino, spa, Robert Trent Jones, Jr.-designed links golf course and a second private island.
