Crane Beach - Barbados Truly Caribbean Holidays

Duration: Half Day

Crane Beach - Barbados Truly Caribbean Holidays

The beautiful pear-shaped island of Barbados is blessed with some of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean – from the wild, rugged beaches of the East Coast to the calm turquoise waters of the West Coast – the island’s pristine white sandy bays attract sun seekers from all over the world. This tour will introduce you to a small piece of paradise as we visit the breathtaking Crane Beach.

Situated on Barbados’ south-east coast, where the rugged landscapes of the Atlantic north and east coast meet the calm bays and waters of the Caribbean west coast, Crane Beach is regarded as one of the world’s finest beaches. The name reputedly refers to the large crane that used to load and unload ships here in the 18th century. Today, the beach is visited by holidaymakers who have uncovered the secret that this is one of the best beaches on the island.

The alluring sea is famous for its hues of blues, turquoises and aquamarines, which stretch as far as the eye can see, whilst the pink, powdery soft sands feels like a luxurious blanket beneath your feet. Fringed by lush coconut palms, Crane Beach is the perfect beach to relax on – both in and out of the sun. It is also one of the best places on the island to watch the sun go down. Let your cares float away as you soak up the rays and feel the warm tropical breeze on your skin.

When it’s time to cool off, enjoy a refreshing dip in the crystal clear waters, which are protected by a natural coral reef. The beach has a gentle descent from shallow to deep and the moderate waves are excellent for body boarding and strong swimmers. A calm, protected cove can be found a little further along the beach for children and weaker swimmers. If you are lucky, you may even spot sea turtles swimming here. Not to be missed during your holiday in Barbados, this idyllic destination is the perfect place to while away the hours in paradise.

If you have more time to explore the local area, take a tour of the Heritage Park & Rum Factory, which is housed in a restored sugar refinery; or discover Barbados’ native creatures in their natural habitat at Oughterson Zoo Park. For a more tranquil experience, the nearby East Point Lighthouse at Rugged Point (the most easterly point of the island) offers spectacular views of the East Coast. The options are endless.
