Located at the east end of the island, Clearwater Beach and Coopers Island Nature Reserve were once part of a US military base and the NASA tracking station. Today the wide expanse of Clearwater Beach is home to Sunjammers Beach Bar, there is also a great playground and you can rent kayaks, snorkel and hydro-bikes and more. Coopers Island is a protected nature reserve featuring wetlands, rocky shoreline and best of all more pristine stretches of white sand beaches. It’s worth the walk to explore. The former NASA radar tower serves as a viewing platform, providing a vantage point for watching birds and wildlife.
