Nearby Beaches

Crane Beach

Naturally, since The Crane Residential Resort sits directly on Crane Beach, relaxing at the water's edge is a popular pastime at this property. Crane Beach is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, largely thanks to its beautiful palm tree surroundings, its pristine white sand, and occasionally exciting waters. Large rocks frame the beach, allowing for a secluded and natural feel, yet the area is still accessible off of the main highway. For travelers who want to venture farther away, there are some additional beaches worth investigating. Click the name of each one in the table to view our detailed article:

If you're looking for a chance to see something a little different, Cotton Tower Signal is an alternative worth considering. Back in the 19th century the Barbados military utilized a series of signal stations to give island wide warning when a threat would occur. They were built on highly elevated ground both so that the military officers would have a good view of the surrounding area as they stood watch, and so that others would see their signals.
