themselves don't need a lot of introduction. The famous group of scattered islands reminds one of a glorious burst of colour, randomly splattered over the Atlantic vastness. Each island will greet you with white sand beaches, lush greenery and pink sunsets, and instantly make you wish you could stay in this paradise on Earth.
Top things to do in the Bahamas
include diving, sunbathing on dream beaches and exploring the magnificent nature. No matter how attractive these activities sound, they are a typical commonplace for all tropical islands. One thing that sets the Bahamas apart from other akin paradise-on-earth places is a totally unique phenomenon you really need to experience at least once in a lifetime.
If you set off to Major Cay, one of the uninhabited islands in Exuma, don't be surprised if, all of a sudden you get 'corralled' by a whole farrow of swimming piglets! They will appear out of the blue (how appropriate), swimming around your boat, or even jumping into it, in quest of a delicious meal. No one really knows how these feral pigs first came to the island, but there are, of course, a couple of legends surrounding their mysterious arrival.
Some claim the pigs were dropped off on the island by sailors who planned to come back and eat them. There is a legend the pigs are survivors of a shipwreck , while some believe the animals are merely part of a greater business plan, developed to attract even more tourists. Be it as it may, these cute pink and brown piglets have become a sight so common that the area has been named 'Pig Beach
'. Swimming with dolphins is wonderful, we cannot argue that, but swimming with these pigs is the latest holiday craze. Pigs and the ocean are two elements hardly imaginable to go hand by hand. But, as you can see, in the amazing world of the tropics, they actually do function quite well together.
Tourists describe pigs as friendly and funny - one second they would be having the best lazy day ever, just resting on the beach in the shade of a palm tree, the next moment they would hastily charge into the water to greet new visitors and request food with their little hoofs and snouts. The whole scene looks a bit surreal as it shows a sight rarely seen elsewhere.We recommend this singular adventure in the Bahamas. Nothing can top a relaxed holiday in the tropics, where you can swim (with pigs), dive, marvel at nature's beauty, or delight in super delicious food. Whatever floats your boat... And it might just as well be the Bahamian pigs.
