  • Coming back
  • Beautiful quiet beaches
  • Beautiful beaches, nicely maintained trails, fun restaurants, and friendly people. There are water taxi available and it's fun for all ages.
  • Twenty years ago in our 41’ sail boat .. we lived and loved and met and made life long friends and had the experience of a lifetime. Think standing on a dock with a couple hundred of your closest friends while the dock collapses. Think racing your home in forty knot winds in the harbor inside Stocking Island and now today, understanding that Marsh Harbor may no longer exist after today and tomorrow after Dorian .. feeling very sad! Those very poor very wonderful people !!
  • Stocking Island is across from Georgetown proper. There are several beaches and restaurants /bars available.
