Join Team Shurhold in the Bahamas on a trip to Big Major Island and the famous Pig Beach! Located near Staniel Cay, a popular yet remote tourist destination, this uninhabited island is home to dozens of pigs that live off the freshwater springs and the food that tourists bring to the island.

Legend has it that the pigs were brought to the island by pirates and sailors so they could proliferate and be used as a food source for those in the region. Now, without any pirates around, the pigs have found a new job as everyone's favorite Bahamas photo opportunity!
