Getting to know the Staniel Swimming Trunks
Staniel Cay is a Bahamian cay in The Exumas, an archipelago of 365 islands. The islands were used as the location for a famous underwater fight scene in the James Bond's Thunderball and the 'Thunderball Grotto' and surrounding area is a very popular diving spot.
The infamous swimming pigs of Staniel Cay have become a world-wide phenomenon, with visitors from all corners of the Earth. 'Pig Beach' is a small nearby island known as Big Major Cay. The swimming pigs started when resistants of Staniel Cay moved thier pigs to nearby island and when the farmers came in boats to feed them, the hungry pigs started getting in the water to greet the boat.
Staniel Cay is a popular stop off when sailing The Exumas and offers break taking diving, swimming with nurse sharks and even swimming with an underwater grand piano! David Copperfield commissioned an artist to make a life sized replica of a grand piano with a mesmerised mermaid leaning on the stool.
