What to do with a whole coconut?

Did the shopping tonight and bought a coconut. (yes, first time ever!)

will have a go at cracking the thing open tomorrow.

Firstly, is it worth trying to save the water? Is this good to drink as is, or could I save it and cook with it later?

Also, is there anything i can do with the coconut flesh other than eat it raw? Can it be added to cooking as part of a paleo meal?

...or should I just eat the thing and buy coconut milk to cook with?

Sorry if this all seems silly, just never bought or cooked with coconut before! (yes I have eaten it)
