Make the most of your day in the sun with a mix of quiet relaxation and active discovery. Passengers aboard Virgin Voyages are invited to spend a day taking advantage of every amenity at their exclusive 4.5-acre Beach Club at Bimini. As you gently ease into the beach day, spend a few moments of meditation and self-reflection in the area’s quiet zone or take a slow-flow yoga class on the sand. Turn up the volume at the pool party and barbecue with a side of DJ-spun music. Complimentary lunchtime fare includes entrees like conch and mango salad, lechon asado on Bimini bread and grilled local seafood. Six bars are scattered throughout the Beach Club each with chic lounge areas offering cushioned booths, shaded hammocks and even swing chairs that dangle over the lagoon pool.
Clear blue water and sandy shores are just the beginning. Bimini has prioritized environmental preservation making it an exceptional location to explore the ocean’s depths. Certified divers can book an encounter with nurse and reef sharks as well as a guided shipwreck dive of the SS Sapona, a WWI-era concrete steamer that went down in 1926. If snorkeling is a better option for you, spend the afternoon in tranquil observation of the Caribbean’s colorful fish and coral formations. Board a motorboat to embark on a dolphin safari and if you’re lucky enough to spot a pod, jump in and swim with these friendly marine mammals. After your swim, find the hammock grove or book a beachfront cabana where the view of the Caribbean Sea is uninterrupted and the first round of drinks are on the house.
Virgin ships stay at Bimini late into the night, allowing you to toast the vibrant-colored sunset and get into the after-dark vibe with stylish DJ dance parties, lighted pools and a bonfire "fireball ritual." Whether your day’s events were active and adventurous or restful and restorative, your evening will be capped off by a lively nighttime celebration. Resident DJs for Virgin sailings include Diplo, DJ MK and Sofi Tukker who spin pool party tunes as you dance your cares away. Stroll to the beach to join the warm embrace of a beach bonfire before retiring to your luxurious stateroom and sailing off to your next destination.
