Beautiful beach and fantastic service. We had a minor issue with seaweed but the team were working tirelessly to remove and return to normal appearance.

Crane beach is in my top 5 beaches in the world, even if your not staying at Crane beach resort just walk through their complex and take their glass elevator down to the beach, amazing! They do not have a wrist band system so you could also get towels and sunbeds, however it may be a better idea to take... More

Mother nature saw fit to bless us with abundant amounts of sea weed. Unfortunately, we didn't appreciate the gift. The Crane staff tried to keep the beach clear, working each day to rake and clear it, but ti was just a lot more than they could keep up with.

The Crane Beach is beautiful but to use it you must either pay the hotel for a day pass, the money will be refunded if you buy food and drink from the hotel, ( but it is quite expensive) and you can have a shower when you leave but that is all. If you want to just use the beach... More

Great scenery, clean, great people. More calm than the other beaches in Barbados. Make sure you get a coconut!

I am not sure if it was my expectations but I was very disappointed. They did have a seaweed problem but I still would have been let down. Carlisle Bay had more pink sand than here. We only stayed for an hour or so then moved to Paynes Bay.

The beach is beautiful with strong breezes, pink sand, & carved cliffs. Yes it does have some seaweed issues but The Crane Resort has a crew of men and a mini machine to clear the beach everyday. Beach is also nice for hiking around the coast.

The Crane Beach is one of most dramatic sights to be found in Barbados. This location is a confluence where earth and heaven meet. The Crane is located on the South Eastern point of the island where the azure Atlantic ocean meets the rocky cliffs of Barbados. The beach is overlooked by the dominant structures of the Crane Resort, which... More

We stopped by this beach as we heard it was one of the nicest in the area, and apparently was once voted one of the best beach in the world. The scenery is gorgeous, the cliff jutting into the ocean really makes for some lovely dramatic photos. I will say the seaweed on the sand seems to be out of... More
