Crane Beach

Once you gaze out over the sparkling waters of Crane Beach at the never-ending vista of blues, it becomes obvious why Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous declared Crane Beach "One of the 10 Best Beaches in the World".

For centuries, Crane Beach has been sought by both locals and visitors for its natural beauty and serenity. Pink, powder soft sand graces your feet, a lush coconut grove sways in the tropical breeze and a golden Caribbean sun help to make this the ultimate paradise – then there is the swimming.

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.

Beach Services

The glass elevator down to the beach makes Crane Beach accessible to less agile guests

The Beach Hut provides umbrellas, sun loungers and replacement towels complimentary to all hotel guests

Beverages and light meals may be purchased and charged to rooms from The Grove Bar & Grill

There is 24hr security on Crane Beach and regular police patrols – note that for security purposes, the elevator and stairs are locked at sundown

Since Crane Beach is a public beach, a lifeguard is provided by the Barbados Government – note that the station is not manned daily and swimmers should exercise caution at all times

Beach users are advised to avoid swimming when the red flag is flying

Boogie boards are not provided by the hotel

Fun Fact:

In the 18th century it was considered improper for ladies to be seen bathing in public. Sea bathing, however, had become so popular that by 1769 at least one discreet bathing place had been constructed near The Crane. It was referred to as the "Horse" and was approached by steps cut into the sea cliff. The stairs to the "horse" can still be seen descending from the far side of the south of The Crane, much as they were in 1769.

About Pat Gunne

Have been going to Barbados since I was a teenager......many decades ago!! Now married with 3 kids and keeping up the tradition. Bought in Crane 10 years ago, and never looked back

Pat Gunne purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Pat Gunne chose Barbados

It's truly unique. I love Barbados. Nicest and most genuine people in the world. Crane Beach is really really special. It doesn't get any better. The fact that it was the first Spa destination in the Caribbean says it all.

What makes this apartment unique

We only own the best weeks in the best Apartments. Weeks 50-1 and all sea front & unique in their own way.

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This unit completely exceeded our expectations even though we had already stayed at the Crane 3 years ago. The views were fantastic, having our morning coffee overlooking the ocean everyday was amazing. The location of the condo with in the hotel itself made a huge difference compared to the unit we had rented before. Being so close to the pools and restaurant made a big difference for the kids and for us. Much more relaxing without so much walking (in case we forgot something in our room). Pat was so kind from my first email to him about availability right through to the day we arrived. He sent us a kind note asking if everything was ok after we had checked in and emailed me restaurant recommendations the next morning because I had asked him for a suggestion. We have rented condos before but we never heard from the owner once payment had been received. I would recommend his condo to anyone looking to stay at an upscale resort in Barbados. The resort has the best beach on the island and is a 15 min taxi ride to great restaurants and shopping.

We had the most amazing stay at The Crane. The unit was perfect for our family of five, including three teenagers. There was more than ample space to relax and get some quiet time, enjoy the view and even host friends for a great meal on the balcony overlooking the Atlantic. We were well taken care of by the staff, and Pat and his family were terrific. They are incredibly trustworthy and made certain that all our needs were addressed well in advance of our arrival date. Pat directly contacted the building's management, who treated us as though we were owners during our stay. We can't wait to go back.
