Fodor's Review

Slightly more than a mile off George Town's shore lies Stocking Island. The 4-mile-long island has only 10 inhabitants, the upscale Hotel Higgins Landing, lots of walking trails, a gorgeous white beach rich in seashells and popular with surfers on the ocean side, and plenty of good snorkeling sites. Jacques Cousteau's team is said to have traveled some 1,700 feet into Mystery Cave, a blue-hole grotto 70 feet beneath the island. Don't miss Chat 'N' Chill, a lively open-air restaurant and bar right on the point. Volleyball games, board games under the trees, and the Conch Bar make for fun in the sun. The restaurant picks up guests at Government Dock on the hour. Stocking Island is the headquarters for the wildly popular George Town Cruising Regatta.
