This is a little known piece of Heaven. Words cannot describe how beautiful this place is! Pack a cooler of SANDS and food and plan to stay all day. Make sure you visit KB at the Chat n Chill!

We did the Honeymooner’s Castaway Island adventure through Sandals Emerald Bay resort. You are taken by boat to Stocking Island and set up with 2 chairs, an umbrella, snorkeling gear and a cooler of food/drink. We again requested changes to the food due to diet restrictions and they happily accommodated…we had enough food/drink for 6 people! The island is mostly... More

I had heard the Atlantic side snorkelling was amazing but had a really difficult time finding information about how to get to the Atlantic once you are dropped off. We took Elvis' water taxi over to the island and asked the captain where the trail was to the Atlantic side. He pointed to a tree in the distance and said... More

St Frances restaurant close by is also good and their fish fingers enormous. The island has lots of beaches and you can touch stingrays that hang around in the turquoise ocean near... More

We went over on Elvis' Taxi to Stocking Island not sure what to expect. It was a great time! We snorkeled on the beach down the way from the Chat N Chill. We had lunch at the Chat N Chill but get your food order in early. We did and it was still a 90 minute wait on our food.... More

I did not think the pig roast was anything special and it took forever,. I would skip it. Also, it's on an island you can get stuck there longer than you care to

Although it was a $15pp round trip to get there on the water taxi, I was pleasantly surprised. The boat arrives on a beautiful deserted beach.. And you kind of feel a little bit abandoned - in a good way! There was a sign for chat & chill which everyone else seemed to follow so we went the opposite way.... More

Once again outstanding pig roast and the food was outstanding and reasonably priced. The entire atmosphere on Stocking island is fun. Arrive early and hike to the other side of the island to enjoy complete solitude and beautiful natural scenery.
