SECLUDED LOCATION ON SOUTHEAST SIDE OF ISLAND
Located on the southeast side of the island, this is a place where less traveled means quietly and luxuriously discrete. Secluded and naturally pristine, here’s where Barbados sheds its crowds, where the Caribbean reflects the bright sun and the sand welcomes you with its soft pink glow. This is a place where cooling trade winds refresh skin and spirit; a place recognized as one of the ten best beaches in the world. Accessible by a staircase or a glass-front beach elevator (the only one of its kind in the Eastern Caribbean) and protected by a natural coral reef, Crane Beach boasts one of the best swimming venues on the island of Barbados. Besides being safe and having a gentle descent from shallow to deep, it's also soft on your feet as there are no sea urchins, stones or coral underneath. Crane beach’s playful waves are perfect for boogie boarding and body surfing.
