There’s A Place In The Caribbean Where Pigs Swim, And You Can Swim With Them!

Somewhere on a largely uninhabited  island in the Bahamas there is a place known as Pig Beach, where a family of brown and pink boars and piglets live happily.

The origin of these pigs is a mystery, however some believe that they were dropped off by sailors on Big Major Cay who intended to come back and cook them.

The sailors however never came back and the pigs survived on an excess of food dumped from ships.

 Another legend claims that the pigs survived a ship wreck and somehow managed to swim to shore.

Whatever, the truth is, both the residents, and tourist are all very happy to welcome these cute nosed creatures on this cay.

The piglets not only enjoy swimming in the water with tourists, but also occasionally lay down for a sun tan or attempt to go on a boat ride.
