Top things to do when you are staying in St. Thomas or St. John:

Take a charter to this most gorgeous island for either lunch or dinner.

The Cooper Beach Club Restaurant, very popular amongst sailors

 

The beach club is gorgeous. Waterfront views, British folks with an awesome accent.

Who doesn’t like an accent?

Ah, I’ve found paradise

The restaurant is pretty good. It’s very laid back. Big portions. The fish and chips are great!

Immaculate maintained grounds. With gorgeous beautiful beaches.

It is almost entirely run on solar power. A very “green” island, mateys.

Although this island is very small only 489 acres, it offers a lot of punch and glitz.

The gorgeous tropical grounds

The beaches are white, soft, and powdery.

For scuba lovers, this serves as a main base hub in the Caribbean.

Offering shipwrecks, reefs, and many tropical fish.

Also, great for the snorkeling enthusiasts.

Manchioneel Bay Beach, Cooper Island

We took this excursion with the Bad Kitty charter (out of St. John) and very glad this is a stop amongst their tour.

I would truly like to come back and stay on the island.

However, there is at least a year in advance reservations to even stay here.

The huge dock

You are better off chartering a boat to come here for the day or rent a boat and Moor offshore to enjoy this gorgeous beauty.

Enjoy this great little island if you ever get a chance to!

  1. I’m a born and raised South Jersey girl myself and just discovered your site. I was enjoying it immensely, perusing all your wonderful historical sites/data, when my eyes popped at your mention of Cooper Island, BVI! Just visited there ourselves last month for the first time ever and enjoyed it so much. Locals said there had been much damage to reef from Super Storm Sandy last fall. Don’t know how it compares to your visit there but we still had a wonderful sailing/snorkeling experience. Lots of tropical fish and sea urchins. It will take some time, I guess, for the reef to flourish again. Hope you can get back there!

    • Cooper is awesome. Sorry to hear that as their reefs are what keep tourists flocking in. I’m glad you got to enjoy it and thanks for sharing you’d thoughts on the beauty. I will be back in a few months… Hopefully lol. You rock, Barbara!
