a few minutes from great exuma by boat you'll find a real jewel: stoking island. among the best beaches in exuma, a spectacular atlantic coast, a small grill/restaurant on the beach with a laid-back atmosphere, stingrays swimming by your feet, secluded houses with incredible views... what else do you need?

My family of 5 rented a boat from Minn's twice during our week stay. That was the perfect amount of time to explore Stocking Island and the other little cays. We loved Chat-and-Chill (we went for lunch) and we enjoyed the beaches and walking on the trails. We found the snorkeling to be better near the smaller cays.

We rented a boat from Minn's and spent a day exploring Stocking Island by boat. Definitely take the time to hike up to the monument, beautiful views of Elizabeth Harbour! There are also several beaches with great snorkel spots around the island. And of course...stop by for a drink from Chat-n-chill!

Chat and Chill has awesome food and one of the best beach bar shacks around. Crystal clear water, very friendly sting rays and the best staff around. Can't wait to go back - counting the days!!

So fun! If you're in the area you must go. Try the fresh conch salad! It's killer! Also, definitely stop at St. Francis for lunch and get the Tuna Wrap. It is amazing.

Hung out with the stingrays, awesome experience. We fed them and just sat in the water while they just swam around us casually.

If you love crystal clear water, petting sting rays, playing with dolphins and eating great food then this is the place to go.

So many incredible beaches with rays, starfishes, dolphins, conches, etc. Enjoy the blue hole and walk across the island (3 minute) to the ocean to jump in the waves. AMAZING!

We stayed on Exuma and rented a boat for three days during which we boated to Stocking Island each day. We spent time hiking the trails which were well done and beautiful views. Spent some time two days at Chat n Chill - ate fresh conch salad and fed the sting rays. Also had a delicious meal at St. Francis.

Visited here for the 1st time - rented a boat from Minn's and we went off exploring for a whole day. LOVED it. It was a lot of work to find everything and go see it all in one day, but we had fun doing it. It made it kind of like an adventure or a treasure hunt. The beaches... More
