Really beautiful beach but waves so high that it was impossible to swim. We went a long way to get there and it was hard to find, you must go through a hotel area to get there. We stayed for about 20 minutes maybe because we wanted to swim.

We stayed at The Crane and this was a really nice beach with free chairs with drink and food service. There are other chairs for non guests and a guy that sells rum coconut drinks. The views are amazing.

The water is warm and up to fifty feet out quite calm and refreshing. Further out gets chippy with an souther current. You have to descend a flight of stairs to go up and down to this beach which has soft white sand and lots of lounge chairs and umbrellas. It is actually a hidden cove with a beautiful beach... More

This review is NOT about the Crane Resort, which we stayed at and gave 5-stars. This review is about the BEACH itself. The pink coral sands were lovely. The cliffside views are spectacular. However, the waters on Crane Beach are more for surfing than swimming. Unfortunately, the four times we visited Crane Beach while we stayed at the Resort, the... More

Started out jumping in a cab looking to go to Brighton Beach with 2 other cruise ship couples going to Crane Beach. Taxi Driver said he would gladly drop us off at Brighton beach but it would be crowded with locals and theft was an issue. OK, I've seen this was a problem in the past but read here where... More

We toured the south/east coast looking at all the local beaches. It's nice, but there are other ones more easily accessible nearby. Anyway, worth a visit.

We visited the beach after lunch and found it to be nice. It is not too large and there was a Red Flag warning when we visited. Overall, it seemed a very pleasant place to relax on the beach, though swimming might be a no-no at times of the year due to rough surf and undertow.

Nice sand and great waves. Watch the undertow if you are not a good swimmer. We stayed at The Crane so beach access was easy,
