Things to See and Do While Staying at St. Francis Resort

Though you likely won't find too many recreational possibilities at St. Francis Resort, that certainly doesn't mean there aren't plenty of other exciting things to do and see while you're on Stocking Island, the Bahamas.

This resort is luckily in close proximity to the water, so the absence of a pool on the property isn't a major concern for most people who can quickly walk to the beach for a refreshing swim. In fact, even when they do have access to a pool, many people like visiting the beach so much that they never use the pool during their stay.


Although St. Francis Resort doesn't have a golf course on the property, you may be able to arrange a tee time during your stay.
