We visited Barbados while on a cruise and rented a van to do some sightseeing on our own.
Crane Beach was one of our stops.
The beach is not very well marked to get there. The signage was poor. Once we located it, It was down a narrow road with a small parking lot for about 6 cars.No parking spots were open. We ended up parking on the road like several other cars. There was barely room for a another car to get by. We had to back the van up several hundred feet to turn around when we left to find a spot wide enough to turn around
There is a beach Resort/Hotel on the right at end of road, and I think all the cars were the worker's vehicles. The public beach is on the left. The path to Crane beach was littered with trash including broken glass and other debris. The path could use a major cleanup. You also pass a private house entrance on way to beach.
Once you get down to the beach, it was pretty/scenic. The beach sand was soft. There were cliffs with caves located on beach that looked like people were living in. Lots of trash inside them.
The waves were rough that day we were there, breaking almost to cave entrance.
We stayed about a hour to walk on the beach and take photos which were pretty, but for all the effort getting there we were not impressed with the beach. No one else was on the public beach while we were there. We did see people at resort beach but no one was in the water.
Crane Beach needs some serious housekeeping. The signage and parking also needs improvement.
