Steep entrance to the beach, and stepping stone path over boulders. The beach was lovely clean and even had a vendor selling drinks. The sea was unbelievably blue, I could have sat for hours just staring at it. Lovely place well worth a visit.

Blue water and white/pink sand. You must go. Good waves for bodysurfing/bodyboard. Few options of public parking.

Beach is beautiful. The sand is soft, white & pink, & always cool at your feet. It's not crowded & it seems very private even though it's a public beach as is all beaches in Barbados. The waters are from the Atlantic side, so there are some waves which are definitely great for body surfing or boogie boarding. I was... More

I keep coming back to this beach to enjoy the body surfing. The sand on this beach has a pink hue to it, and remains my favorite beach. I have been to Bondi Beach near Sydney, beaches in Maui and Hawaii, beaches in California, and the Panhandle of Florida, but the Crane beach remains number one.

Lovely beach to relax on! What a natural beauty. Not too crowded and lovely to be able to order food from The Crane beach bar.

Beautiful beach under cliffs. Access via stairs or elevator. Lounge chairs and refreshments available. No rest rooms at beach--must go to hotel on top of cliff. Atlantic surf can be rough--swim with caution.

The beach at the Crane is just beautiful. The white sand and ocean breeze make for a great day. There are no vendors in your face selling their wares. There is food and beverage available. The tide is strong so the life guards watch everyone in the water. The coral cliffs are beautiful. What a place for a walk. Unfortunate... More

Juste arrived for a 17 day vacation at Crane Beach to find out that the beach is mostly covered with seaweed. Kind of ruins the experience for me. The seaweed is allo everywhere in the water, I could see it fromage the airplane when we landed. I hear that the problem is not found on the est coast. So beware...

And beach is a little out-of-the-way on the East Coast of Barbados. It is truly one of the more. The surf is rough and swimming on some days could be a little precarious. However, for pure beauty, it is something to see. You are surrounded by coral cliffs and you can walk over to the beach in front of the... More
