beach description

The Crane welcomes you to the other side of Barbados… literally. 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.
