The Bahamas are well known for its pearl white beaches and deep blue sea but the Big Major Cay Island also offers something you least expect.. PIGS. Welcome to Pig Beach.

No one knows for sure how the pigs ended up on the island. There are rumors of shipwrecks, voluntary migrations and farm escapes. They even say that the pigs have been dropped off on Big Major Cay by a group of sailors who wanted to come back and cook them. The sailors, though, never returned; the pigs survived on excess food dumped from passing ships.
