Gallant Lady Shipwreck

Gallant Lady Shipwreck

The Bimini Islands are also famous for the Shipwrecks. One amazing spot is the Gallant lady Shipwreck which is a rusty frame of the old ship Gallant Lady that was washed ashore in 1997. The Rusty red of the ship’s skeleton against the turquoise blue waters and white beach sand is absolutely a stunning sight to see. I felt like I discovered it when I found it since it was hidden at the very end of the island and tucked around a corner. There was absolutely no body there. The sunset at this spot is an out of the world experience and treat for senses. It could turn out to be another fun spot to explore on your vacation.
