Beautiful beach, amazing water, relaxing atmosphere. Tempting to spend the whole day at Chat 'n Chill beach, but do explore! there are amazing views on the East side of the island and the St. Francis resort has one of the best restaurants in the Exumas!

Fun and easy place to explore but be sure to carry plenty of water. There are several way to hike to the tower so try them all. The beaches are beautiful and kayaking the coves on the "bay" side are fun and easy. There's also a blue hole that has many fish to see so be sure to explore there;... More

The island is quite pleasant but it is the rays that swim around the shore looking for food that makes this so special. The rays are so used to getting food from bathers that they will eat from your hand and are very gentle - more so than the pigs or Iguanas on other islands!! The chat n chill food... More

We went on Sunday for the pig roast. The water is so beautiful. The stink rays come right up to the beach and you can feed them conch. Take the time to walk to the Atlantic side. Well worth it.

We rented a boat from Minns and explored Stocking Island on our own. Very pretty little beaches and cays all over the place. It was nice... but I will say that after awhile all the pretty little beaches started to look the same. With so much to do in Exuma, I'm not sure I would do this again next trip,... More

Worth it to rent a boat from Mins and go out there for the day! The conch salad at Chat and Chil was terrific and it was fun feeding the friendly starfish!

Rented a boat from mims and cruised around the island. Great for snorkeling, feeding stingrays and seeing the island. Had a great lunch at Saint Frances restaurant. The best food of our trip! Explored the trails and other side of island!

We took the water taxi to Stocking Island to eat at Chat N Chill. Based on the reviews, we were expecting something really great. It was an ok spot - we won't go back.
