For Beach and Boat Drinks: Cooper Island I won’t say it’s all about the drinking at the Cooper Island Beach Club, but this compact private island eco-resort across Sir Francis Drake Channel from Road Town, Tortola definitely has all the beverage angles covered. Mornings begin at the Coffee Box and continue on the resort’s sandy beach facing a yacht dotted harbor. Just a few steps away are is the Cooper Island Brewing Company, a microbrewery that produces a half-dozen varieties of beer using water from the resort’s desalination plant. Better yet, Cooper Island is home to one of the best (and recently expanded) rum bars in the Caribbean, along with an excellent restaurant housed in a breezy pavilion. Bright and spacious guest rooms are arrayed along a beachfront boardwalk behind private gates and just uphill, providing both intimacy and easy access.
