The Bahamas have always been a playground for the rich and famous. Paparazzi constantly informed us on every other house purchase in the islands. But what are this news against the sensational swimming pigs of Exuma? During recent years they seem to have become a true sensation and the top must-see item on travelers’ wishlists.

Everyone who arrives to the Bahamas, heads to Exuma for the swimming pigs. Both kids and grown-ups enjoy watching cute animals. At the same time, it’s not that surprising the pigs have become so popular. How many of you can boast ever spotting a pig swimming?

Some locals suppose that this ability owes to the clarity of water—as though the pigs are not afraid and set off in depth, as they can see the bottom below. Well, maybe… Another mystery is where they actually come from to settle on Bahamas? Some suggestions indicate Columbus… But again nobody knows exactly. The only certain thing is their startling fame. Besides the pigs, Big Major Cay is also inhabited by A few stray cats and goats.

So if you ever get lucky to visit the Bahamas, don’t hesitate swim alongside with a beautiful pig. The most delightful season is summertime as it's warm enough for a beach season.
