The Craft Centre, located in the heart of Alice Town on North Bimini, is comprised of 17 booths operated by friendly residents of the island. Visitors can purchase locally made handicraft, hats, T-shirts, or some other kind of trinket as a souvenir to remind them of their Bimini visit.

Or, just simply stop in to enjoy the appealing island atmosphere and use the free WIFI. If you get a little hungry, a lunch van is available on weekdays, offering a variety of hot delicious Bahamian food. There are also restrooms onsite.

The Centre is open seven days a week, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Seasons Open: Year Round

Accessibility Notes

Persons with mobility impairments and those in wheelchairs can easily move around on the premises.

 Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes

The Craft Centre is comprised of individual booths owned by friendly locals from the island, such as Carmen Dames, Cleole Hanna, and Corwell Bain, who have been in the business for over 25 years. Visitors always look for Carmen when they arrive and expect to purchase a fresh loaf of Bimini bread from her, accompanied by a smile. Cleole aka 'Gatorade' is in booth #2. She enlightens customers about the sites and sounds of Bimini as she does embroidery designs on her straw bags. Repeat visitors to the Centre remember Cowell, because she is extremely helpful and always makes them laugh. They come back looking for her, because she makes them feel more than welcome to the island.  

 Pet Friendly Notes

Leashed pets are permitted, but must be controlled.
