There seemed to be two different types of people visiting with us; either people who visited to have some beer and chat at the bar, or people who stopped by to have a bite (we visited on Sunday which is when they roast a pig, which was pretty good) and relax on the beach/hammocks etc. Personally a little bit too...

Imagine a place where you take a boat to get to, sit on a pristine beach, interact with local Sea Life, enjoy a nice beverage and dine on freshly cooked local fare. You have just imagined the Chat & Chill. The location is perfect, the atmosphere is divine and the days spent there will be remembered forever. I could not... More

We absolutely love this beach bar. The employees could have been friendlier but once you do finally get acknowledged, the scenery and water can't be beat. We spent a couple afternoons here, once by water taxi and once by our boat rental from Minn's. Make sure you wander off and find the path to the Atlantic side. The stingrays were... More

Stocking Island is absolutely gorgeous and definitely worth the visit! The restaurant itself had average food and decent drinks, but was nothing special.

On day one of the trip, I was beyond excited to hop the quick ferry ride over to what everyone on the island said was party central on a Sunday; Stocking Island. There they have pig roast, music playing, volleyball games, a cool and colorful gift shop and the bar and restaurant Chat ‘N Chill. After about two hours of... More

We just got back from Great Exuma and visited the Chat "N" Chill several times during our stay. We rented a boat form Minns so it was a super easy ride (less than 10 minutes) to get there. We anchored our boat right onto the shore. The beach is beautiful there. We brought beach chairs and I got to relax... More

A great way to spend a Sunday in the beach! They had roasted pork, rice and peas, macaroni and cheese, and coleslaw. So yummy!! Be sure to add some of the sauce over your pork to give it a little extra pizzazz. The Chat n Chill has other food options too. We didn't get a chance to try them. Their... More

As I love nature I enjoyed a lot the natural interaction with the stings. They are very friendly and you can have a great time just looking at them while they swim around you. Definitely a must visit if you have a few days in Exuma. The boat ride to get there is $15 and leaves from George Town. I... More

We found this place on a web site listing the Top 10 things to do in the Exumas. With credit it does have a great sandy beach, vivid blue water, there are volleyball courts and a few ropes to entertain the kids. The visiting rays are close up and friendly. It must have been prime in its time but now... More
