Beautiful beach - quite stunning when you first see it. It truly has pink sand. Enter through Crane Beach Hotel. But it is a very rough surf--be careful.

Anyone visiting Barbados should visit Crane beach, it is superb with great waves in a super location with facilities albeit at a small charge.

This is a wonderful beach, lots of shade made by the cliffs so umbrellas are not necessary. We also had a great time jumping off the cliff nearby, it was right over a deep part of the ocean and quite safe - although the undercurrent is pretty strong. It was not crowded (although we visited during the off season) and... More

Went here with my girlfriend twice after driving around the island checking out all the beaches we could find. The water was super warm but the waves were pretty strong as they are on all the beaches on the east coast of Barbados. Beach chairs and an umbrella I'd $20 US all day, and you get access to the bathroom... More

Unforgettable experience, best view from the island. Everyone including the front desk, restaurants, bar, housekeeper and maintenance staff were very polite. I highly recommend the spa. The food is amazing especially from the bar/restaurant next to the swimming pool...

Lovely to look at and nice breeze. Good if you like to body surf but bad for leisurely swimming. Nice beach bbq and bar

What a wonderful beach! Fairly big waves are great for body surfing, and the view is spectacular. There's a 15-ft (?) cliff-side jump-off into the ocean that is awesome. It's not the place for younger kids--but so fun for stronger swimmers!

Lovely beach but some REALLY big waves when we visited in June. Love a swim and to snorkel but a quick dip just by the shore was all we dared to do on the day of our visit.

This is a must if you have a car, Crane is stunning! You can get there via the hotel and lunch is pretty reasonable there. Or via the pathway about 500 yes past the turning to the hotel. You can park and walk about 300 yes down to the beach. You can hire beds and parasols you will need them... More
