Attentive staff where you just raise a flag for service. Also private beach so we were undisturbed the whole day - don't miss it.

The beach was nice but the ocean was too rough to swim and the beach was quite small and busy in comparison to other beaches in barbados. The views are gorgeous at the beach though.

Had read reviews about this being one of the best beaches in Barbados. The pinkish sand is beautiful but the beach is ruined by the resort in the cliff top and crowded with loungers. Wouldn't bother with this one. Bottom Bay is much wilder and...More

A gloriously beautiful beach. Wonderful white sand, and crystal Caribbean blue water. Beware the very, very strong waves/undertow - the pull can overpower even the strongest swimmer. Makes for a super fun wave jumping experience, though!

A great place to spend a whole day. Expect to pay $20US / $40bds to rent 2 loungers and an umbrella. You can also rent boogie boards for some fun on the waves. Food at the cafe is ok, but a little expensive like many...More

Very dramatic sea view which is great but remember if you aren't good swimmer it's not for you, this is the ocean side of Barbados and the waves pull you in instantly, however we have enjoyed evenings walks by this beach before dinner

Stopped by here for a peak. Found a long narrow lane and parked and at the end was Beach access. It is a spectacular beach though swimming did not look recommended. Looked like something off a postcard.

Great view, nice atmosphere, soft sand to go for a walk. The waves are very rough and choppy in the Atlantic, so a beach visit on the Caribbean side would be more my advice.

Have just returned from a sunset stroll - no hawkers, no hassle and very few people on the beach at all. Classic sunset views and great fun picking our way along the stepping stones at the public entry end of the beach. There is sea...More

great beach, high sea weeds in water made it less enjoyable this time. Nice chairs with covers. Nice beach bar in back for Crane resort patrons.

About half an hour by car or a couple of hours by bus with transfers and such. if you don't have a car you are probably better off arranging for a taxi with your hotel.

Yes, there will most likely be chairs available. There are guys who bring lounge chairs and rent them out so there should be plenty available. Also, I suggest you order lunch from Cutters. They will deliver to the Crane... More
