Cooper's Island Nature Reserve

About

Explore 12 acres of pristine nature reserve to spot seabirds, giant land crabs and ancient Bermuda cedar trees on Cooper’s Island, at the southeastern tip of Bermuda. This secluded area was off-limits for decades: The U.S. military occupied the area and built a battery during WWII, and in the 1960s NASA operated a space tracking station here. It was reopened to the public in 2011, and now it has nature trails and shallow-water beaches perfect for a day trip or picnic. Climb the wildlife observation tower to see a sweeping panorama of the island.
