Recreation in Pine Island Sound, Florida
When you step onto our island - be prepared to relax....Old Florida style. Cabbage Key is a great place to relax with a book by the water, bring an easel and paint, work on that novel you always wanted to write, explore the island on our nature trail or bring your own fishing pole and fish off our dock. You may enjoy fishing & boating, dining, nature & wildlife, beaches, and more. We suggest bringing a flashlight and all of your supplies for your stay with us as there is no general store on the Island.
Our waters are world-renown for spectacular sport fishing. Whether your choice is fly, spin or plug, there are plenty of opportunities nearby. We can provide names & phone numbers of local guides you can contact to arrange a charter or we can arrange for a skiff if you want to try the flats and mangroves on your own. Game fish include speckled sea trout, redfish, snook, shark and the magnificent silver king.
Located in the Old House, our restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner 365 days a year.
Walk our nature trails and meet the wildlife the way nature intended. Signs identify our flora and fauna. As you explore our island you'll discover the natural beauty that we love so much. Leave the stress at home while immersing yourself in our place. In the water, on the land, or in the air, there is always something to discover. Watch for an osprey eating a fish or an eagle soaring overhead. Anhinga and cormorants dive for dinner. Pelicans fill their beaks in loud splashes.

Cayo Costa is a barrier island immediately to our west. It is only accessible by boat so its six miles of pristine beach offer unspoiled beauty. We can arrange a beach experience you will forever remember. We'll pack a delicious box lunch and give you easy directions for you to find that special spot. Wonder at the endless variety of driftwood and vegetation; watch birds soar overhead and work the surf line. Perhaps see a porpoise breach, a tarpon roll or a ray jump clear of the gulf. Enjoy... you may not see another person all day.
Climb our water tower and look west for the Green Flash as the sun sets over the Gulf of Mexico. The view of the Gulf of Mexico on one side and Pine Island Sound on the other is magnificent.
Visit our gift shop for that perfect souvenir. We carry of huge selection of T-shirts and hats for the whole family. For the fisherman in your family, we have embroidered Bimini Bay long and short sleeved fishing shirts and Bimini Bay Ultracell-UPF 35- long-sleeved shirts. You'll want several special mementoes for yourself... and don't forget those at home.
