Loved that there were so few people there. Great beach, trails around the island. No negatives. A wonderful place!

The Sunday BBQ was absolutely delicious but there is so much more to see and do than just hang around the Chat n Chill. Fed the stingrays, laid in the water and drank! Make sure to talk with people as there is always someone interesting to get to know. This is the place to be on a Sunday!

Stocking island is a tiny place that's just fun to go to. Chat n' Chill is a very appropriate name for the beach bar - that's exactly what people do there. There is also a spot where you can touch the stingrays that swim up to the beach, which is an interesting experience.

We had a fun water taxi ride with Elvis and played with sting rays for over an hour. It is amazing how socialized they are. They seem to come in the early afternoon. We went four times and the last time we actually waded in shallow waters with five of the rays recognizing safety needs to be exercised with their... More

We had a great time exploring Stocking Island for the day. On two separate days, we rented a 17' Boston Whaler from Minns in George Town and went to numerous beaches and snorkeling spots all over Stocking Island. This is the way to do it, even if you are on a huge yacht. There are secluded beaches and crowded beaches... More

You can only get there by boat. There are no lifeguards, restrooms or camping. And, if you can manage to get there, it is absolutely worth the effort. It is one of those rare places where you can still find a quarter mile of beach for yourself on some days. Relax on a beach, take an amazing hike, or snorkle... More

The island is super fun. A great place to hang out, we only went for a couple hours and wish we could have stayed longer! Definitely a must do while you are on the island! We took the Elvis water taxi and loved our captains:)

An island seemingly in the middle of nowhere yet so close to venture around. The swimming is amazing and the beach is just breathtaking to walk. I yearn for this every time I am away too long.

We went to Stocking Island to check out all the hype, but unfortunately were disappointed. The food was not great, and the service was poor. Definitely not as friendly as we've seen in Exuma.
