Off the northwest side of North Bimini Island, the snorkeling at Bimini Road offers a glimpse at the mysterious underwater road. In 20 foot deep water, there are cut limestone blocks arranged in 2 six feet wide by 200 feet long formations. The Atlantis Road, as locals call it, boat accessed dive site is located north of Alice Town and Paradise Point. The Atlantis Road snorkeling dive site is located about 0.8 miles to the north of the middle of North Bimini Island and west of North Point off Bimini Bay Hotel. Keep in mind that the water clarity can be variable due to the nearby sand flats. After a hot day of snorkeling at Bimini Road, try checking out The Compleat Angler for a cool drink.
