This tiny unspoiled island in the British Virgin Islands is a beautiful five mile trip across the Sir Francis Drake Channel from Tortola on the Cooper Island Beach Club boat. There are white sand beaches, no roads and only four privately owned properties on the island, plus the small beach club resort. The climate is almost perfect with balmy tropical breezes. You'll see coconut palms, bougainvillea, frangipani, yucca, orchids and other exotic plants on the island and a nice variety of birds.
Swim, snorkel, scuba, kayak, fish, hike and explore the whole island or just lie on the beach and relax. The best snorkeling is right off your beach. You'll be amazed at the wide variety of sea life you'll see right there. Soak up the sunshine on the white sand beach or relax with a cold drink under your own palm tree and watch the yachts sail by in the Sir Francis Drake Channel. But if you want more to do, you can take a day sail or rent a rigid inflatable dinghy with motor to explore other islands or to water ski. All of this can be arranged at the Sea Grape Boutique on Cooper.
Stroll down your private path to the Beach Club for cocktails, lunch or dinner. Cooper Island is very relaxing and you will leave with a sense of peace.
