Off the island of Big Major Cay in The Bahamas, tourists aren’t swimming with dolphins. Instead, they flock to this uninhabited island to swim with wild pigs.
The area, known as Pig Beach, is quickly becoming all the rage with tourists and celebrities alike. In April, Victoria’s Secret model Irina Shayk joined the pigs as they lounged on the beach and took the occasional dip in the ocean.
Slate Magazine recently spotlighted the pigs, looking at the legends behind how this famous porcine population came to be. The island is home to around 20 pigs and piglets.
