"Chat & Chill"

Had a great time at the Chat & Chill. A fun beach bar and cafe, its a local hang out. The conch salad is made fresh and drinks are amazing.

If Chat n Chill is crowded, the wait is way to long for a beer or coke. Took us 45 minutes to get a beer. Lunch....forget it if crowded. More like Wait n Chill.

Stocking Island is known for it's private beach bar/restaurant Chat 'n Chill. I spent only one day here, and wish I had had the time to go again. The atmosphere is very social, the drinks very strong and the stingrays very slimy. Wonderfully relaxing hammocks located in the trees. A must see when visiting Exuma!

We've been coming to Georgetown for a number of years and are back for more fun. We are staying at Palm Bay, which is great as usual. We love all the folks at the hotel, but especially Dr Tiny at Splash bar and her hiccup cures! Don't miss renting a boat from Minns, visiting St Francis for lunch, including their... More

However you get there....rent a boat at Minn's or take a water taxi....GET HERE! Everyone goes to Chat N Chill, but explore more than just there. We had a great lunch at St. Francis and went over the hill to the beaches on the Atlantic side of the island. Still the beautiful Caribbean clear blue water, but more waves. GORGEOUS.... More

Great place to visit by boat from Exuma. Home to St. Francis resort and Chat n Chill bar and grill, great wildlife abounds, as well as walking trails, kayaking and snorkeling opportunities.

This is a fun place to spend a day or an afternoon. Take a boat over from town ~ a young man greeted us getting out of our car and walked us over to the dock. There is a nice beach there and Chat 'n' Chill restaurant. Also, the conch salad is delicious and it is fun to watch it... More

The beaches on stocking on the harbor side feature very calm waters and wildlife. We have been to stocking island several times on our three trips to Exuma but have never taken the hike over to the Atlantic Ocean side. Be sure to take the short hike over during your trip to see the amazing beach with literally no one... More

We had a short stop here for lunch on our tour.....so glad we got to stop here. The service and food was very good. The views are great and yachts everywhere. I am not sure we would have had enough to do if we stayed more than a couple of days but would love it for a couple days in... More
