Big Major Cay

Exuma, the Bahamas

Big Major Cay

Big Major Cay (also known as Pig Beach), is one of 360 islands found in the Bahamas’ Exuma Cays. It lies in between hundreds of cays and islands that stretch north from Exuma Island.

The island is about a mile in length and can be walked in an hour and a half. Big Major Cay is inhabited by roughly 20 cute pigs ranging in age and size. They enjoy their days wading in the water, asking for food from visitors and just basking in The Bahamas sun.

The Stunning Waters of Big Major Cay

Though The Bahamas are one of the most visited group of islands due to their proximity to the US, Big Major Cay was much of a secret until recent years. It is the adorable wading pigs that brought much off its attention. However, one cannot deny the aqua blue waters and white sand beaches that surround the Pig Beach. The pigs really have a beautiful home!

Big Major Cay – Part of the Popular Bahamas

Big Major Cay is one of the many islands of the Bahamas, which is an archipelago and country on the northwestern edge of the West Indies. Bahamas was formerly a British colony, though it became an independent country within the Commonwealth in 1973. Bahamas are frequented by millions of tourists each year, however due to Big Major Cay being 100 miles away from Nassau is much less visited making it a great destination to enjoy.
