Huge waves that turn you inside out - brilliant if you like that sort of thing and I do! Loungers readily available and the sand is nice and clean. You'll be offered and expensive coconut drink by the beach vendors - nice to try once but not something I would wish to repeat....rather have a beer although my wife enjoyed... More

The seaweed has turned this delightful beach into an unattractive one. People were coming down ready to set themselves up on the beach, looking at the seaweed strewn beach and going away.

We got the bus to crane beach to spend the day here. The beach itself was pretty but not spectacular. The waves are really rough, great for body boarding but not for a relaxing swim! Beware of the currents, they can change a drag you out quickly! There is quite a lot of seaweed about too. All in all a... More

Just a lovely setting with a beautiful blue sea. Sun beds available. Need to be staying in the area. We visited from St James and it was about a 40min drive

love the beach, but waves are rough; great for body surfing. Water if blue, but if you are looking to relax in the water, this is not the place for you. There are plenty of chairs/umbrellas with beach service. Due to the rough waves, there are no water sport activities.

From the glowing reviews, we expected a world class beach---while this is one of the longer, wider beaches we spent time on and was pleasant for a swim in the gentle waves, we did not find it to be as amazing as we had read. We got to the beach as many guide books suggest, by telling the guard at... More

Although it's off the beaten path (if you're not staying there), you can get to Crane Beach by bus or taxi. You walk down a hillside path at the end of the road down to the water (not ADA accessible!). The beach is flat, smooth white sand with beautiful Caribbean blue water. When we were there midweek in September, there... More

The beach was never over crowded and the staff was excellent. The water is crystal clear but the waves could be a little rough. Overall it was great.
