Bima Regency is a division (Indonesian: Kabupaten) of the Indonesian Province of West Nusa Tenggara. It is located on the island of Sumbawa and the capital is Woha. The Regency excludes but completely surrounds Bima City (Kota).

It has two non contiguous parts, one part is the northern half of Sanggar Peninsula which is dominated by Mount Tambora, and the other half is the easternmost quarter of the island (exlcuding Bima City). Between the two parts is Dompu Regency. To the NE of the Tambora part is Sanggar Bay, 3 bodies of water border the regency, Bima Bay, Waworada Bay, and Sape Strait.

The Regency is nearly co-terminus with the former Sultanate of Bima and includes the nearby islands of Sangeang, Banta, and Managate. The island of Kambing, which lies in Bima Bay, is also part of the Regency.
