Okay, they don’t have wings – but they are wild and they do swim. Just north of Staniel Cay in the Outer Exumas is Big Major Cay. On this island there is a beautiful, private beach that these feral pigs call home. Apparently when you boat in to see these friendly guys, they eagerly jump into the water and swim up to the boat expecting a meal.

If you stay here, it’s possible to boat over from the hotel to see them – looks ridiculously quirky and romantic!
