The Bahamas – Things to do

Things to do in the Bahamas

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

This group of cute swimming pigs have become one of the Bahamas’ biggest tourist attractions. They live on Big Major Cay Island and are thought to have been the sole survivors of a pirate shipwreck. Today, you can visit the uninhabited island from Great Exuma to meet, feed and swim with the adorable pigs.
