“If you want to get to a beach thats off the beaten path then Clear Water beach and Cooper Island nature reserve is where you want to go!!! Its out in St Davids but worth the drive as not many people go out there and there are many beautiful beaches and not many people! Stunning area....if Im not working I will take you as I love it out there! ”

“Worth the ride/drive to Southside (former US Naval Station) at the eastern end of the Island. Quieter and more secluded than the adjacent but equally beautiful Clearwater beach and requires a few minutes walk as it is within a nature reserve. Take a picnic and a bottle of something special!”

Park
“It has some beautiful beaches that were once not seen by Bermudians because the property was once owned by the US Base that was at one time here in Bermuda. But since leaving they left some of the nicest beaches for everyone to see.”

Scenic Viewpoint
“Although Clearwater & Turtle Beach are in the immediate vicinity, you are able to access Cooper's Island Nature Reserve via a gate that only allows for pedestrian traffic. There are several beaches and coves within the Reserve amidst it's many trails. You can take a cooler, BBQ, etc, find your own romantic spot and make a day of it. There are plenty of snorkeling venues and 'Nunsuch Island' is a short swim away. ”

Beach
“This is a wonderful calm place to swim and a great way to see how the locals spend their leisure time. The beach is safe without any currents, and there is a lifeguard on duty during the summer months. The name derives from the regular sightings of turtles swimming in this secluded bay. Grab a quick meal next door at Gombey's Restaurant, which also rents paddle boats and other water sports toys. Gombey's also boasts a full bar and evenings there is music and dancing. ”

Museum
“Please visit the Carter House Museum which is just a stone's throw from "Trixie's Place". This is a 1610 period home which is on display. Also, on the same grounds, is a replica of a palmetto thatched roof house which would have predated the stone built "Carter House". ”
