One of the most northern beaches in Bermuda, Clearwater Beach, is located on the eastern tip of St. David’s Island.
Despite its proximity to the International Airport, the beach is a favourite of local residents and not too well known to the tourists. Clearwater covers part of the northern coastline of Cooper’s Island and its water is quite shallow, making it ideal for families with children.
Clearwater Beach has the particularity to be a man-made beach, as well as being off the beaten tracks, so you will need to walk for a bit before reaching it. It’s because Cooper’s Island was a restricted area and home to a US Naval Air Station from the mid 1900?s up to 1995. When the base was closed by the United States after 54 years, the Island and the beach were opened to the public in May 1996.
To reach Clearwater Beach, you can either take a local bus or drive there by scooter. If you go for the bus option, you will need to check with the driver that it goes to the beach, or get off at St. David’s Lighthouse and finish the journey by foot. There are also boat excursions that can take you to Cooper’s Island and near the beach.
