In this article, learn everything you need to know about pig beach and how to swim with pigs in the Bahamas.

We recently joined a day tour with 3N’s Exuma Vacations to see the swimming piggies with our own eyes, and the experience really did live up to our expectations. When you visit the Bahamas, you must see the famous swimming pigs — it’s quite the spectacle! 

Crystal-clear water, blue sky, pigs that not only live on a deserted cay but also swim…what’s not to love?

The setting of Pig Beach is stunning, the piggies were friendly, and the whole situation was the perfect mix of bizarre and awesome!

Here’s everything you need to know about swimming with pigs in the Bahamas.
