Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you would have probably seen adorable photos of pigs swimming in the ocean on social media. You’ll be happy to know that Pig Beach is a real place, and located on the beautiful Bahamian island of Exuma. Celebrities have traveled in their troves to swim with these little piggies, and now you can too. This is the ultimate guide to Pig Beach.
A Popular Destination
In recent years, Pig Beach on Exuma Island has become extremely popular. Influencers and celebrities alike have made their way in their thousands to check these wild pigs out for themselves, and they have since posted all about it on social media. This has created a buzz surrounding the destination, and it seems as though more and more people now want to make their way there.
Of course, the main attraction of this Caribbean island is the fact that these pigs freely roam around the beaches. Because of the hot temperatures, they regularly make their way into the ocean to cool off. However, the pigs are not native to the island, so it’s not known how they came to live on the island in the first place – and this just intrigues people even more.
As well as offering visitors the chance to explore the Caribbean island and the wonders that come with it, Exuma also offers an up-close-and-personal experience with the pigs. Many people don’t get the chance to come into direct contact with these animals, so that makes it extremely special. What makes it even more special is the fact that these pigs swim around you in the water and aren’t scared of human interaction.
If you’re looking to visit Pig Beach, it’s important to remember that you are visiting the pigs’ natural habitat and to stay respectful.
