Beaches on Stocking Island

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 Area's Beaches

You will find a large selection of beaches to enjoy on and near the island. Simply click on the name of each beach for a detailed review of that part of the coast.

Coconut Cove Beach: Located in between the mainland and Stocking Island, the water remains clam, and the various shades of blue in the water are fantastic. Multiple boat docks ease out into the water from the shore here.

A second place to consider is Jolly Hall Beach. In between George Town and Hoopers Bay, Johnny Hall Beach is formed by a thin peninsula jutting out from the coast - Johnny Hall on one side and Coconut Cove Beach to the south. The water is shallow and calm, making swimming opportunities available for folks of all abilities.

Hooper's Bay Beach: The beach curves thinly around the pleasantly calm Harper's Bay. The area is quiet and relaxing, and you can enjoy watching some small boats as they come to and from the couple of docks on the Bay.

The following chart provides you with more information on the the beaches that can be found on and near the island.
