The waves, the sand, the cliff to jump off of, and the setting are all great. One of my favorite beaches.

We have been to the Crane Beach many times. It is on the east coast of Barbados so we were able to enjoy great waves. Most in our group enjoyed jumping/diving off the cliff. There was some seaweed but nothing that interfered with our enjoyment...More

The waves are huge and the current is strong. Small kids should be accompanied. Seaweeds on the shore but not in the water. The sand has a pinkish tint to it, very soft and not too hot even at noontime. No bathroom facilities.

About half an hour by car or a couple of hours by bus with transfers and such. if you don't have a car you are probably better off arranging for a taxi with your hotel.

Yes, there will most likely be chairs available. There are guys who bring lounge chairs and rent them out so there should be plenty available. Also, I suggest you order lunch from Cutters. They will deliver to the Crane... More
