Swimming With Piggies in the Bahamas!

Aside from crystalline water and major wow factor, this slice of heaven is home to the most ADORABLE SWIMMING PIGS!

SWIMMING PIGS

Big Major Cay is uninhabited except for these sweet swine. They are exceptionally friendly and “piggy paddle” out to greet tour boats. Locals take care of the 20+ feral lovies, including piglets. Visitors giggle and beam while gallivanting among the Caribbean creatures.

Not to be outdone, a few cays away Bahama’s Exuma Rock Iguanas have their own island. Equally as affection, the tropical lizards gently eat cabbage from seafarer’s hands.

Nearby tiny Stocking Island specializes in friendly Bahamian hospitality at Chat N’ Chill Bar and Grill, where they serve burgs, fish, BBQ chix (NOT PORK :-)), and Kalik beer— the local brew.

They claim to be a “slow food” spot which means you’ll wait awhile for your grub. That’s where the chill part comes in. This comes easily after spending the day hanging with the hoofed natives.”
