Extreme Cuteness Pig Beach Bahamas – Extreme Outdoor Adventure & Tourism For Spring


Pig Beach (also known as Pig Island, Major Cay, and officially Big Major Cay) is an uninhabited island (or cay) located in Exuma, the Bahamas, and known for being populated by many swimming feral pigs.

The pigs are said to 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.

One other legend has it that the pigs were survivors of a shipwreck and managed to swim to shore, while another claims that the pigs had escaped from a nearby islet.

Others suggest that the pigs were part of a business scheme to attract tourists to the Bahamas. The pigs are now fed by locals and tourists and the island is unofficially known as Pig Beach by the locals.

I myself want to believe in the first legend, about the sailor (or pirates) who never come back for the piggy meal. Maybe they themselves were eaten by some legendary sea monsters and leaved the pigs alone for good, hah. This place will definitely be 1 of my dream vacation plans in my wish list! Yay!!!
