Nature-lovers and quiet-seekers should head to Cooper's Island Nature Reserve. Cooper's Island was previously the property of the U.S. military until 1995, and was off-limits to locals and visitors, Now the 31-hectare island is slowly being converted to a nature reserve. One part that has been completed is the boardwalk into a restored pond and salt marsh.

Around sunset, this is a great site to spot the nocturnal Bermuda petrel, commonly referred to as the cahow, Bermuda's critically endangered national bird. Cooper's Island also has nine beaches, one of the few places in Bermuda to explore pristine areas of sand away from noise and traffic.
