This beach was very clean, relaxing and peaceful. One of the coolest things was the long carpet like rugs that lined the walkway to the beach. It was also great to know that dogs are allowed, as long as they are leashed. A nice feature of the hotel we stayed at was it offered shuttle service to and from this... More

We arrived on a Saturday and I wasn't sure whether we would get in the parking lot but there was lots of spaces. Yes the $40 parking fee is a lot but if it supports all the amenities of the beach then that's fine. Great beach, lots of space if you want to walk. Ordered some food at lunch which... More

If you don't want to pay $40 to park, go about 1.5 miles down from Coopers BCH and part for free. The beach is clean, not many people here on this Monday. No facilities , but you could possible return to Cooper's beach to use their's. We didn't try and not sure if they allow. Enjoy!

ok.. so the $40 price tag for non-residents is a little steep, but check with your hotel as there is a good chance they will have a few permits for you to 'borrow'.... if you can't foot the price tag you can always go down one of the side roads for parking and walk down the beach. That said.. this... More

This beach seems to be on a lot of lists for bests beaches. Not sure why? It's just a beach; soft beige sand, ocean water, waves, lots of people, the usual. It's nice but no wow. What it is is one of the few public beaches in an area that's mostly private. There are some facilities here like a snack... More

Nice beach but nothing there apart from a car park, cafe and big houses. Our impression was that there is not much encouragement to visit the beach, e.g. no promenade, restaurants, bars, kiosks, nor even any real footpaths or directions from town. We presume this is to appease the owners of the USD 40m houses that dominate the sea view.... More

Broad nice beach with friendly restaurant, shaded tables and when in full operation rentals. Permit is expensive $40 per car but you can walk or ride a bike in to Cooper's. Ocean is nice cove area but a lot of rocks as you first go in.

This beach is beautiful, long strip of soft white sand. Being able to rent chairs & umbrellas makes it 100X better than a typical beach. Pretty clean bathrooms considering... Snack bar was a plus Gorgeous drive to the beach seeing all the mansions

Coopers is a beach I have been to many times over the years.It is near the house I had a few summers ago. I just went there two days ago still the same sand and water. You need a permit to park during the summer season.
