Only 25 minutes from Nassau/Paradise Island

The Bahamas Swimming Pigs are quite well known in the beautiful islands, and you may have thought you had to travel so far to see them; Not anymore! Sandy Toes is home to a sanctuary of protected wildlife including our Royal Peacocks, curly tail lizards, ocean reef life and our beloved “farm – saved” beach going, swimming pigs!

Meet Babe, Wilbur, Pumba, Larry, Curly, Mo, Ginger, Pepper, and Spice our 9 awesome Rose Island piggies! These big guys and some little guys are vet checked and cared for on the regular, and only given the cleanest diet served with plenty of love, sunshine, and sunscreen (yes, sunscreen!) With tons of space to run around, the ocean next door to take a dip in, and a protected and shaded pad to call their own, they’re living the dream on Rose Island! Come see for yourself!

The swimming pigs are part of our Full Day Excursions from Nassau to Rose Island. The experience (which is totally optional) is included in your price along with access to the island, snorkeling, lunch, and all of the other amazing Sandy Toes amenities already available to our guests!
