The Bahamas – Things to do

Bahamas Attractions

There’s no denying the beauty of the Bahamas, a collection of over 700 tropical islands that unveil a treasure trove of heritage sites, underwater caves and diving opportunities. The wildlife is a real talking point. After all, The Bahamas are inhabited by the world’s largest collection of pink flamingos and those famous swimming pigs, a real highlight when you visit the Exumas. Many of the islands are uninhabited and really allow you to explore unspoiled terrain - including Little Water Cay, an island home to just iguanas - known as "Iguana Island". However, if you aren't much of an explorer, the stunning white sand beaches are an attraction all to themselves.

Swimming with Pigs

There are 365 islands and cays which make up the Exumas, and one of them is Big Major Cay, otherwise known as "Pig Beach". Home to a collection of adorable, friendly and now famous pigs. There are many stories as to how the pigs wound up here, one is they were the sole survivors of a pirate shipwreck, the other is they were placed there for tourism. Either way, they are one of the biggest attractions in The Bahamas. As soon as they here your boat arrive the friendly bunch will approach you for food and a playful swim. We offer a range of excursions for you to meet the gang from Grand Exuma and Nassau.
