Bimini Bay Resort Puts Bimini Back on the map
BIMINI, Bahamas, October 23, 2007 – The Ministry of Tourism has officially released the numbers for 2007, comparing and analyzing tourism in all the islands of the Bahamas. These statistics prove just how well Bimini is positioning itself on the map these days whether for fishing tournaments or vacations for families and couples.
According to the Bahamas Hotel Association report based on numbers calculated from January-July 2007, air arrivals in Bimini are up by 32 percent compared to air arrivals in Abaco, Andros, Cat Cay, Cat Island and Exuma – all which are down when compared to 2006 numbers; see Figure 1 graph below.
Just this past year, Bimini has contributed to the heightened rise in visitors and local vendors are reaping the benefits. Numbers were especially large during holidays like 4th of July, Labor Day weekend and Memorial Day weekend. Between 2006 and 2007, Bimini Bay Resort went from hosting two events to 12; with this increase of fishing tournaments and various events, the resort will continue to set the standards among this new wave of tourism everyone is experiencing in the Out Islands.
Bimini Bay Resort will continue to contribute to the rising growth of tourism in the Bahamas. Guests of the Bahamas can look forward to more 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 its expansion with the Conrad Hotel, casino, spa, Robert Trent Jones, Jr.-designed links golf course and a second private island.
