We stopped here on an excursion and could not believe how cool it was. The island houses some rentals and hotels along with restaurants and the famous Chat and Chill. We were able to swim with sting rays and just chill on the beach...this is paradise and we will be back

A must do for visitors to the Exumas. Take a water taxi ride from Elvis and spend the day. Try the Conch Salad, feed the stingrays. Best day to go is Sunday for the Pig Roast.

Visit chat n chill and enjoy the island lifestyle with the locals. Go to the other side of the island if you want complete privacy for the day. While snorkeling on Stocking Island we swam with sting rays and a dolphin! Ask Elvis at the water taxi to hook you up with Delly. He'll take you around to all the... More

We stopped here as part of a tour and spent an hour or so relaxing at the Chat n Chill. I was very excited to interact and feed the stingrays. The location was a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the Bahamas.

I loved Stocking Island. The conch salad. The pork roast on Sunday and the Kalik beer are wonderful. I cannot wait to return. This island is incredibly beautiful.

Very relaxing island to enjoy the rays and the crystal clear waters. Chat n Chill is perfect for dining.

We didn't enjoy this...not what we expected. It was a shack/hut/bar. We thought there would be more to it. We paid $24 for the water taxi go drop us off. The water was beautiful. Locals said Sunday is the best day because of the pig roast.
