If you are in Exuma , you must go to Stocking island. You can easily catch a water taxi from the dock for 12 dollars a person return. Go to have a conch salad ... the yummiest. And hike over to Atlantic side. If you are not a strong swimmer I would not swim on Atlantic side.. there is a... More

Just a fun place with a beautiful beach. Went to look for shells. was able to walk quite aways around the island at low tide (which was fun and beautiful) but alas no shells, such a disappointment. Rewarded myself with a fine burger at Chat and Chill.

Nice island with no crowds, crystal clear water, not far from Georgetown by water taxi (12 dolars), chat & chill bar, delicious french conch salad on the beach. Shallow water, friendly fish, perfect for families with (small) kids.

This is a must-do in the Exumas, in my opinion. We rented a boat and found our own sandbars and inhabited our own private beaches. SO AMAZING. The only bad part is it's not enough time.

Great getaway, perfect for a daily trip. Just go to Georgetown and take a water taxi (12 USD same day round trip) and it's a quick 10 min ride. You will land at Chat'n Chill beach, where food is excellent.
