Crane Beach, Union Hall

#1 of 12 in Things to do in Saint Philip Parish
Rest up on the sand or hit the waves at Crane Beach. Originally a port, the beach gained its name from the large crane that would load and unload ships, perched atop the cliff that frames the beach. Now sitting on top of the cliff you'll find a beach resort, with a bar offering extensive views of the coastline. The beach itself offers plenty of room for relaxation and beach sports, while good waves also make the beach popular with boogie boarders. Planning Saint Philip Parish trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • A really lovely beach overlooked from the clifftops at one end by The Crane Resort. We spent the afternoon on the white sands, hiring two sunbeds and an umbrella for $40 (Barbadian dollars). Cooling Atlantic breeze. Lots of good waves which are a little less powerful than the ones experienced at Bottom Bay just up the coast. Reminded us of a beach in Cornwall!
  • Great beach, not very busy.
  • Beautiful and relaxing. Not crowded
  • Best place in Barbados for enjoy the waves without surf.
  • Have been there four or five times and am never disappointed. You feel as if you are on the end of the world.
