Crane Beach, Union Hall

Beach · Nature / Park
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.

  • Best beach in the world!
  • The day we went the waters were very rough, they left and went to Miami Beach. Crane beach I didn't like the atmosphere too touristy.
  • Best hidden beach ever!
  • Crane beach is on the east coast. It was interesting to see the different side of the island. Some very nice improved walkways and some great cliffs.
  • Such a lovely beach and kind of tucked away. There is, of course, the access from the Crane Beach Hotel, where guests can take the elevator down, placing you directly in the centre of some local food stalls and access to lounge chairs and the beach area. Or you can access it as a local, via a walk way taking you onto the same stretch of beach. It’s good for beach time getaways, family time, and of course, photoshoot opps.
