Gorgeous beach, the hotel has half the loungers/beach. The other half, the public side has all the seaweed and rubbish swept over to it which is a huge shame. Once you ignore that it is stunning, great for body boarding, strong waves great fun for all ages. Def worth a day here.

We were staying at the Crane Resort and just loved the beach. The sea can be rough and so I can understand the concerns about letting children go any deeper than a few inches but, for an adult, the waves make for a great time. Sure you'll get tossed and tumbled, but stay sensible and you'll be fine. 10 minutes... More

It's not exactly private as there were a fair number of people there. The sea was rough so swimming didn't look like much fun and it wasn't easy to get to. There's also not much around so you're kind of stuck. If you just want to see something different then I guess it's a good spot to take some photos.

We were there on a very windy day, so the water was very rough and we couldn't swim. The beach itself is beautiful and private, but it was covered with seaweed. Nothing else around it to see, really. We had a car, so we parked by the main road and walked down to it by using a path along the... More

Nice stretch of beach accessed by the Crane hotel. Although it can be a bit rough at times, its a great place for the family.

We love the accommodations at the Crane. The rooms are beautiful and very roomy. The bathrooms are very nice. We stayed in a 2 bedroom garden view with a gazebo and private pool. The pool is nice with lights that change colour at night. There were 4 robes in the room and the master bathroom had 2 sinks. There's more... More

Over the past years we've met a lot of different beach crew, but Corey G and Kyle O are absolutely the best!!! The whole beach experience has been our favorite while staying at the Crane including Henderson & Terry's jewelry tables, Albert's bird carvings, the awesome burgers & fish sandwiches, great drinks, impromptu beach volleyball games and LOTS of laughs...

This place seems like magic to me. From the time you walk the circle steps on the rocks till you hit the white sand, your eyes will be amazed at the beauty you see. I love nothing more than this sight! Next time I will jump from the cliff. Its so gorgeous- next time is coming SOON! Barbados was an... More

We stayed at The Crane and this was a really lovely beach to have so close by. Very soft, golden pink sand. The Crane have a casual restaurant and bar on the beach, so facilities are available. The sea can be quite rough on the Atlantic side and I tried to go in but was knocked off my feet a... More

We have visited before and it was a really beautiful beach, but there were a team of guys and a small bulldozer working on clearing the seaweed, but loads still coming in on the tide.
