06 Mar Swim with Our Corkscrew-Tailed Friends at Pig Beach
Sunglasses? Check. Swim shoes? Check. Swimsuit? Check. Towel? Check. Pig buddy? No worries. Paradise Island Beach Club has you covered. One of the most interesting attractions near Nassau Island is Pig Beach: a beautiful, white sand beach with picturesque palm trees, crystal clear water, and a smattering of friendly, fuzzy piggies who love swimming as much as you do. We know what you’re thinking: “How the heck did those pigs get there in the first place, and how do I book my own Pig Beach Excursion from Nassau?”
Well, no one really knows how the pigs got there, but there has been plenty of speculation. Pig Beach resides on Big Major Cay—a small uninhabited island adjacent to Nassau Island. It’s highly probable that Europeans had brought pigs with them to the Bahamas for food, and then a few escaped. Or, some believe a few lucky porkers survived a shipwreck and made a decent living for themselves. Kudos to those pigs for evading their bacon-destined doom and living out their best Paradise Island Beach Club life.
