Bimini Road, Bimini

(3.6/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
The Bimini Road, sometimes called the Bimini Wall, is an underwater rock formation near North Bimini island in the Bahamas. The Road consists of a 0.8km-long northeast-southwest linear feature composed of roughly rectangular to subrectangular limestone blocks. Various claims have been made for this feature being either a wall, road, pier, breakwater, or other man-made structure. However, credible evidence or arguments are lacking for such an origin.HistoryOn September 2, 1968, while diving in three fathoms (5.5 metres) of water off the northwest coast of North Bimini island, J. Manson Valentine, Jacques Mayol and Robert Angove encountered an extensive "pavement" of what later was found to be noticeably rounded stones of varying size and thickness. This stone pavement was found to form a northeast-southwest linear feature, which is most commonly known as either the "Bimini Road" or "Bimini Wall". After Valentine, the Bimini Road has been visited and examined by geologists, avocational archaeologists, professional archaeologists, anthropologists, marine engineers, innumerable divers, and many other people. In addition to the Bimini Road, investigators have found two additional "pavement-like" linear features that lie parallel to and shoreward of the Bimini Wall.

  • We grabbed a Golf Cart by the ferry drop off and went onto the Bimini roads. The island is not big so you won't get lost. There are coast roads to find a place to lay out or take photos. 
  • Have dived and snorkeled the legendary Atlantis Road several times over the past 10 years. Best at low tide for visuals. A mooring ball to anchor to, so easy access. 
  • Keep in mind that if you decide to walk instead of taking the free hotel Tram to one of the local restaurants, you will be walking on the street or in the grass, because they don't have sidewalks.
