The basics

Cooper’s Island, at the southern tip of St. David’s Island, offers some of the best wildlife-watching opportunities in Bermuda. A boardwalk runs through the preserve, making it easy to explore the palmettos and Bermuda cedars. The former NASA space shuttle monitoring tower now offers an ideal vantage point for spotting migrating humpback whales or Bermuda petrels, the island’s national bird. Along the protected inner cove of the reserve, a pair of picturesque public beaches—Clearwater Beach and Turtle Beach—offer secluded places to swim and snorkel. Look for conches on the sandy sea floor and sea turtles grazing in the seagrass beds. Some beach hopping tours in Bermuda include free time to explore the reserve.
