Pigs can Swim? Welcome to Pig Beach on Big Major Cay, home to the famous swimming pigs of the Bahamas. You’ll have the opportunity to go swimming with the pigs! We provide food for feeding these Exuma Pigs, but follow directions from you Guide. Pigs can bite!
There are a number of interesting stories of how these pigs got here at Pig Beach. Some say they were shipwrecked and swam ashore or that sailors brought them here then left and never returned for them. But the real reason is that the villagers of Staniel Cay put them there to avoid smelling out the village. Unlike some operators, we ensure that the welfare of the pigs are looked after by our local partners. For example ensuring they have a supply of fresh water.
