Cooper Island is a chill beach with a great bar and some of the best snorkeling you'll find. The place was recently renovated (@ 2011-12) and feels current with great lounge areas to chill and watch the sunset. While ALL the sunsets in the BVI are amazing, Cooper Island's beach faces west, so you'll be overlooking Peter Island, Norman, and the big hills of St John in the distance. I highly advise getting a mooring ball vs anchoring as it can be a little (not bad) swelly and for this reason it is better at the end of the charter vs the beginning to let any newbies get there sea legs. For snorkeling, jump off your boat and swim up the coral side to the end - bit of a long swim, but there are 2 octopi that live on the side if you're lucky enough to spot them. If you swim all the way to the end, the water drops a good 40' and you might see some big fish. There's also a dingy mooring line out at the end - just be careful of snorkelers - I watch someone almost get hit every time I'm out there. The food is much better these days - you eat out in the open and from fresh fish to roti to meats - you'll be good to go. Then its a quick 45 minute bump back over to Road Town in the am. Highly recommend this as the last stop. That sunset will be burned into your brain for a long time!!!
