The active and pretty beaches in Barbados are considered some of the best attractions that the region has to offer.
If you are looking forward to the beach more than anything, The Crane Residential Resort has what you need. This lodging is set along the shore, so visitors can spend their whole trip in the sun if that will make them happy. This location is situated away from the more congested parts of Barbados, which means those visiting this particular area will oftentimes have the shore all to themselves, providing them with the opportunity to relax away from bustling crowds.
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.

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.
