Measuring in at only four miles long, those who set out to explore all of Stocking Island in one day will usually be successful if they've got a plan of action.  Aside from the beaches, which should be lingered on, there are many hiking trails which will allow visitors to see all of the important points of nature. 


You'll find an abundance of beaches to consider visiting on and near the island. You can click on the name of the beach for detailed information about that section of the coast.

A nice beach where snorkeling is a popular is Stocking Island Beach. Like many of the other beaches on Stocking Island, Stocking Island Beach features some of the finest and whitest sands in the Bahamas. The waters at this beach are bright turquoise and very calm, thanks to the coral reef that lies fairly close to shore.

Another option for beach-goers to consider is Hamburger Beach. Forming a crescent into the west coast of Lee Stocking Island, Hamburger Beach has dazzling white sands and bright aquamarine waters.

Coconut Cove Beach: Just up the road north of George Town, there are a couple of spots off the main road to pull your car over to the side, park, and follow the path to the beach.
