The likes of Johnny Depp, Nicholas Cage and David Copperfield have all staked claims to their own little pieces of paradise in the Exuma Cays, but the easy life in this island chain in The Bahamas isn't just for film stars. Some less well-known fellows can be spotted frolicking on the beaches and basking in the shallows, as happy as pigs in ... seawater!
If swimming with pigs takes your fancy then such delights are possible. Guests staying at Royal Plantation Island, at Fowl Cay can take a boat out to Big Major Cay and head to the southernmost beach - Pig Beach.
From mainland Exuma there are boat excursions, to see all excursions click here to go to Exuma home page: Four C's Adventure - the Four C's stops at a variety of cays and sandbars, for example at Guana Cay you can feed the local colony of Iguanas ... only grapes, no nasty high fat foods, then sail to Thunderball Grotto for snorkeling the crystalline waters featured in the James Bond film Thunderball, from when the grotto earned its name.
The cruise stops for lunch at Staniel Cay, close by on Big Major Cay are the swimming pigs , proving that there's more than one way to make a pig of yourself.
