Meet the Swimming Pigs

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing The Exumas holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

Intrepid travellers and romantic honeymooners aren’t the only ones enjoying the Bahamian white sands, crystal-clear seas and warm climes. Hidden away in the exotic Exuma islands, you’ll find Pig Beach, home to a few dozen swimming pigs that are totally tourist-friendly. The story goes that the pigs were the sole survivors of a pirate shipwreck and set up home on the island many years ago, to become one of the Bahamas’ biggest attractions. As soon as they hear your boat approaching, the pigs will jump into the water and approach for a playful swim – they’ll also be on the hunt for scraps of food too. These water-baby pigs are the ultimate beach bums and a friendly paddle with them will provide plenty of lifetime memories
