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.

  • Crane beach is one of my favorite spots on the island. Crystal blue water, sugar like sand and gentle waves. You can also rent chair, umbrella or boogie board at the beach.
  • Nice beach but dangerous for swimming
  • Nice big beach with beautiful pink sand. Beach chairs and umbrellas availble to rent on the beach. A bit complicated to get to the beach and the water isn't always swimable due to strong currents. Wouldnt recommend for those who arent strong swimmers but tons of fun if you are.
  • 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!
  • Beautiful and relaxing. Not crowded
