If you get chance you should visit this stretch of beach. It does have public access if you look hard enough!! If you are even luckier you will be greeted with the opportunity to buy a really strong cocktail in a coconut husk.

Heard so many good things about this location but when we visited the surf was up, too dangerous to enter the water, and there was seaweed everywhere. Definitely not enticing so we left and had a beer at a little bar up the street.

Very private beach for residents of the Crane. Nice beach lounge chairs and umbrellas. Attentive staff to bring you rum punch.

Great beach even with all the seaweed on it at the moment. Make sure you slip slap slop though as its hot, windy and cloudless down there.

Good for boogy-boarding although we just watched. Sun-loungers, parasols and beach bar serving lunch and drinks.

We didn't stay at the hotel, but had a rental car so we drove over from our villa in St. Lucy for about 45 mins and hit up Crane. There's a roundabout when you pass the hotel and then a public access parking street and path right there. There are also friendly vendors who will set you up with 2... More

This is a beatuful beach, even when there's heavy seaweed. The water is clear and warm, the sand is soft as silk, and the chairs and umbrellas are plentiful. We loved it.

Found on the south coast, directly beneath the Crane Resort. I say beneath because the resort is on a cliff and the beach is at the bottom of the cliff. If you are not staying at the hotel and are driving there, I recommend the following: I approached from the west and drove past the main entrance of the Crane... More

It's a beautiful view and beach with soft sand. Surf a little rough since Barbados is surrounded by the Atlantic. I must say, I was a little disappointed since I had read it was rated one of the top beaches. I found Shoal Bay on Anguilla, Grace Bay in Turks and Caicos and Kua Bay on the Big Island far... More

We visited the Crane hotel for Sunday Gospel Brunch. The gospel singers were great! The breakfast was perfect with fresh fruit, cereal, breads and pastries, hot food and pancakes. The venue is perfect with lovely views and gorgeous hotel facilities. I am sure that a stay at the hotel would be quite a treat , but we could simply visit... More
