Stocking island is a must on your Exuma vacation. Fresh conch salad, warm water and Sand Like sugar. I can't wait to go back.

We spent a Sunday at Chat n Chill and enjoyed great food and wonderful people. Locals and tourists alike all enjoyed the fresh Conch Salad and the roasted pig.

Stocking Island proved to be one of the best things about our visit to Exuma. We visited three times in the week we were there. The water on both sides of this skinny island was different and both breathtaking. The first day we arrived we headed straight there to enjoy Chat n' chill and the pig roast. Great bar where...

If you don't have your own boat, take the local water taxi to stocking island. Only one restaurant that's right on the beach (that we were aware of) was Chat & Chill. You could probably get away with bringing your own picnic or cooler. Not sure if there's more on the island we didn't explore, but can be an affordable... More

Another beautiful island in the Bahamian chain. Host to the amazing Chat n Chill cafe and island cats. Easy to access via a water taxi or small boat. Might be able to kayak or canoe over on a calm day. Lots of beach to explore, monument to visit, gorgeous scenery all around.

Grabbed Elvis' water taxi and set ourselves up on the beach. Wee were tickled pink to see the large abound of sting rays that approached us in the water to be fed and pet. Also did some snorkeling just outside of Chat and Chill. Just a fun 1/2 day trip.
