North Bimini, The Bahamas
This sleepy Bahamian isle has gotten a major wake-up call with the debut of the $20 million Resorts World Bimini Bay casino.
Don't-miss dining: The renovated Sabor Restaurant serves conch stew and fresh ceviche alfresco, overlooking the water.
The local catch: Bimini is the Bahamas' big-game fishing capital, so channel your inner angler and head out to hook blue marlin, wahoo, and swordfish.
Bring it back: Stock up on artisan wares and locally made jewelry at the Bimini Craft Centre.
