The traditional and historic fishing and diving scene or the new hot golf scene? That's the situation in Bimini right now as Biminites fight against continued island development that damages there natural resources and the tourism appeal that made Bimini famous since the days of Ernest Hemingway.

With Cheeseburger in Paradise just around the corner, we thought we would share this great list of Abacos' local, off the beaten trail restaurants and end of the road bars visited by Julie Wunder. Could be a great roadmap for a poker run!

Lucky for us all rain kept her down on the resort for a day and gave us a spectacular look at a few of the amazing dishes at Hope Town Inn & Marina, her home base for this Abaco adventure.

Bahamas Marinas Ready And Open For Early Fall-Winter Season

The 47 marina and allied members of the Association of Bahamas Marinas are open for business and are anticipating a busy winter season, almost all members having experienced no significant damage during the recent hurricane Matthew.

ABM members were reporting full restoration of power and water to their docks and resorts within a day or two of the hurricane, the small eye of which traveled over the Exumas, Nassau, Chub Cay and Grand Bahama Island. All the Exuma marinas including Highbourne Cay and The Marina at Emerald Bay (Sandals) reported no or slight damage with Safe Harbour at Cave Cay soon to repair two damaged docks and fully operational with other docks.

In Nassau and Paradise Island, all marinas escaped unscathed. In the harbour, Bay Street Marina and Nassau Yacht Haven reported no damage and are fully functional. Palm Cay on the southeast coast of New Providence only had a couple of channel markers misplaced while marinas at Lyford Cay and Albany were undamaged. Albany chose to close temporarily to cleanup foliage and make the luxury estate pristine.

In Grand Bahama, Old Bahama Bay & Yacht Harbour is waiting to be reconnected with power soon. Bradford Marine in Freeport Harbour is up and running with restored power for its dry dock, travel lift and all its repair services. Port Lucaya Marina is open for yachts, having reported a few vessels underwater while Grand Bahama Yacht Club’s clubhouse and docks are fine. On Friday October 21, power and internet returned to Port Lucaya Marina and the power company expects Grand Bahama Yacht Club to have power by Saturday.

Blessed with mere a cooling breeze and some rain, the islands and cays well away from Matthew’s eye such as Cat Island, Long Island, Eleuthera, Abaco and Bimini were untouched. In those more fortunate islands, the marinas’ efforts were focused on aiding their neighboring communities and cleaning debris.
