We were disappointed with Crane Beach. It did not live up to the hype and our expectations. What we encountered was a “red flag” non-swim able beach with crashing waves, dead seaweed and many sand fleas. The sand was a very beautiful white quartz but was covered with ridges of dead seaweed.
The waves and undertow were so violent that it turned the beautiful blue water to brown sandy muck and dead seaweed over the entire week we were there.
Access to the beach is by an elevator, which sometimes does not work or take a winding staircase down the cliff. This is not a handicap accessible beach.
