Stocking Island's best quality may well be its beaches.  Just a short boat ride from Elizabeth Harbour, this island is frequented by day trippers in search of the exact type of beaches that the island is known for:  white sands, crystal clear waters, and changing facilities and bathrooms to boot.  If you're into watersports, the snorkeling and diving are not to be passed up, while if you just want to party, there is a bar and restaurant on the shore that will keep you busy and entertained all day.

The water is shallow and calm, making swimming opportunities available for folks of all abilities.

Hooper's Bay Beach: The beach is north of George Town and and about 5 miles from the airport. You can park on the peninsula that forms the Bay, and walk the short path from there.
