Adventure Caribbean Celebs Inspiration Luxury Swimming

TRAVEL INSPIRATION | Pig Island, Exuma, Bahamas

November 3, 2014 by @VanessaRivers

Pig Island (also known as Big Major Cay) takes its name from the adorable pigs that inhabit this tropical atoll. Dismissing the myth that pigs can’t swim, these celebrity piggies love taking a dip in the sea with tourists, especially with a babe like Natasha Oakley. I first saw photos of this fairytale island on her Instagram and instantly became obsessed with seeing these swimming pigs for myself and staying at Staniel Rents, the new luxury vacation villas on the island of Staniel Cay.

From what I have read nobody seems to know for sure how the pigs got to the island, but they’ve been there many years and seem quite at home. I grew up on a farm on the Central Coast of California, and had a pot-bellied pig (Pinkers) as a pet for many years, but I never once saw her swim. Pigs and the ocean are two of my very favorite things though, so it’s not surprising that Pig Island has now gone to the top of my bucket list!

When you’re not swimming with the pigs you can make friends with other locals. Below Devin Brugman gets cozy with the Reef Sharks. Diving in the crystal clear sea with Staniel Cay Divers is also something not to be missed.
