A gorgeous place!

One or two of the many vendors are a tad pushy, but just ignore them and they will leave you alone. Aside from that is a picturesque, and gorgeous little beach to spend the day.

This is a relatively small beach and not too busy. Gorgeous breakers and turquoise ocean. We had coconut cocktails on the beach and managed to haggle an excellent price. We will be back.

the walk down to the beach is a little intimidating for older persons.it starts with steps thenas well to stepping stones that's where it gets tricky especially if you're carrying stuff.so worth it when you reach the breath-taking views. the beach is split the far side is hotel guests.there is an oasis bar and grill open to all.beer and drinks...

Back again to the Crane beach. The resort has solved the seaweed problem from last year. The beach is stunning. We spent a couple of hours hanging in the continuous waves that are refreshing and an experience. it does not get any better than this. Best beach experience at the Crane beach in my 4 years to the island.

Crane Beach is a nice beach for lounging and getting cooled off. We spent everyday at the beach listening to the waves roar. The waves can be overwhelming for a not so experienced ocean swimmer, but the waves can also be a ton of fun too. Once you're out past the breakers you can float around, bobbing up and down....

We rented a car while in port on a cruise and decided to visit this beach based on reviews and stunning photos. It did not disappoint. We used the public beach access and then rented chairs and umbrellas. The water was not too rough while we were there, but was definitely more active than other waters we are used to.... More

If you love the beach and all the fun of the surf then The Crane is wonderful. Dining is a bit hit and miss, try to avoid the Italian Restaurant. Breakfast and semi formal dining is lovely but you will need a car to get the best of the area. There is a shuttle to the local supermarket for provisions... More

We stayed at The Crane for 8 nights so we're lucky to have one of the best beaches in Barbados at our feet. It was so beautiful and the setting just magnificent. The sand was powdery soft and the water warm but it is rough so young children can't play at the waters edge too safely. Not to mention there... More

Crane beach is a gorgeous beach to visit, with nice rock formations surrounding it. We did not go through the hotel, but when through the public beach access. The waves are strong, so perhaps is not the best beach for small children. There is also a small trail to the right if you are facing the ocean where you can... More
