A small island just minutes away from George Twon, this is a tropical paradise. The temperatures are warm, the weather was spectacular, and the views amazing. We hiked, we swam, we snorkelled blue holes, and we lounged around a funky, fun place called the Chat N Chill for good food and interesting people. Cruisers and boaters from all over congregate...

Defiantly worth the trip once. Can't walk all around the island very easy. Not allong beach atleast as it gets rocky and deep. But plenty to do and see for afternoon if you take the water taxi over. $12 round trip seems ok and they run often. Chat n chill was neat and try the fresh conch salad and feed... More

Stocking is a charming island with beautiful beaches on both the harbor and the Atlantic side. Chat N Chill is Soggy Dollar's cousin (Jost Van Dyke) with a great Sunday pig roast. St Francis Resort has a fantastic restaurant and path to the Atlantic shore which opens up to a long stretch of beach. This is a sailor's hangout and... More

Went to stocking island on Sunday for the pig roast at Chat and Chill. The food was amazing. We just hung around the beach feeding the sting rays and drinking kalik. Later we swam across a skinny channel of the bay over to the atlantic side. I couldn't believe how warm the water was. We did some body surfing and... More

If you are in Exuma , you must go to Stocking island. You can easily catch a water taxi from the dock for 12 dollars a person return. Go to have a conch salad ... the yummiest. And hike over to Atlantic side. If you are not a strong swimmer I would not swim on Atlantic side.. there is a... More
