Not to say all of the British Islands weren't incredible because they absolutely were - but Cooper island totally charmed me! It is a very small island but perhaps that is what I enjoyed about it - so relaxed! The Cooper Island Beach Club has been adorably renovated in recent years and houses a coffee shop, boutique, rum bar, and restaurant. We had some great tartare at the restaurant and some gelato from the coffee shop to finish off our meal!

The wildlife was what really made me fall in love with this tiny island. Cooper Island is not a huge tourist destination and is not large enough for cruise ships to dock - making it the perfect bay for sea animals to frequent. We swam with sea turtles and dolphins (my fiancé has the GoPro videos to prove it!) and fed some adorable goats our leftover lettuce. Every island has its own unique feel and attraction, I loved the simplicity and peacefulness of this tiny contender.
