The Bahamas is one of the famous tropical spots in the Caribbean islands, where you can do a lot of summer time activities such as scuba diving and snorkeling along the Andros Barrier Reef or off the isle of Bimini, enjoy a game of beach volleyball, ride a yacht and go fishing, lounge around in one of their well-known luxurious resorts, have a romantic time with your loved one and enjoy the scenery, or probably mingle with the locals if you're single.
Even so, you can find more unique things in this magnificent archipelago, besides beautiful tan-skinned women whom you can share a dry martini with, James Bond style. In this place where pirates once hang around burying their treasures, lies a hidden gem that has something other beaches in the world don't have. Big Major Cay, an uninhabited island located in Exuma district of the Bahamas, is home to a family of castaway pigs, according to the Independent. Also known as Pig Island, this part of the Bahamas is the only place in the world where you can swim in the beach with the company of cute little pigs.
According to DailyStar, some people say that the pigs were a part of a cargo being carried off by a boat. The pigs managed to save themselves by swimming to shore when the boat was shipwrecked. Others also say that the pigs were left there intentionally by sailors who planned to cook them for a feast later on, but apparently, have forgotten about them. Nobody knows how these pigs ended up in the island, but luckily for them, they survived thanks to food supplies from visitors and three freshwater streams located in the island. The Exuma Watersports in the Bahamas conducts adventure tours for a span of a whole day long for 172 dollars.
