Bahamian marina hires PR firm

Bimini Sands Resort & Marina appointed Turnkey Communications & Public Relations as its new public relations agency.

“We are happy to have Turnkey Communications’ Louisa and Gary Beckett, with their extensive public relations and journalism backgrounds, as our PR team,” the resort founder and president Frank Cooney Sr. said in a statement. “We already have a huge following in Florida as a family-friendly boating, fishing, water-sports and vacation destination. Now our goal is to invite the rest of the world to experience Bimini’s magic.”

Just 50 miles from Miami on the Bahamas gateway island of South Bimini, the year-round resort features one- and two-bedroom villas with beach or marina views, a full-service marina accommodating boats up to 100 feet and more.
