The Best Place to Vacation in Barbados

The Best Place to Vacation in Barbados

Dreaming of hot sand, aqua water, and a coconut in your hand? The best place to vacation in Barbados is calling your name! Turn your dreams of the Caribbean into a reality (although once you’re here, you may still feel like you are dreaming), and spend time, whether with family, your significant other, or friends, in a magical place.

While considering where to go in the Caribbean, look no further than The Crane Resort overlooking Crane Beach.Crane Beach has been named the Best Caribbean Beach by USA Today. And upon seeing it, you will understand why. Pink-tinged sand and incredibly blue water will be enough to take your breath away.

Some of the most relaxing and peaceful moments can be had here with us on Crane Beach. Originally a port and harbour, Crane Beach has become the stamp of luxury and relaxation.  With the powerful yet playful waves, many guests enjoy bodysurfing as much as they enjoy lounging on the shore line whilst taking in the several shades of blue. Other awesome sports such as snorkeling, scuba diving, waterskiing, surfing, sailing, kayaking, fishing, and windsurfing are all fun options that are available and can be arranged through our friendly and knowledgeable Concierge team. For those who prefer staying on land, site-seeing, cricket, golf, horse riding, hiking, polo, and tennis are options as well.



If being on the water soothes your soul, choose from day cruises, sunset cruises and private charters to capture the charm of Barbados on the West Coast. Your day cruise will have you gliding over the tranquil waters where you’ll have the chance to swim with turtles and snorkel over shipwrecks. A delicious lunch buffet and unlimited drinks await you after your swim. The sunset cruise adds a touch of romance with a swim with turtles followed by lounging on the deck and watching the beautiful sun set over the horizon. Appetizers and unlimited drinks get your evening started. Private charters can be arranged for any occasion you may have planned. Be it an anniversary, family gathering, proposal, or simply some peace and quiet, the water and the sun is yours on your own boat.

Further your sense of relaxation by checking out our Serenity Spa located at the resort. Offering full body massages, facials, body treatments, manicures, pedicures, and other spa services, you will be sure to have all your stress melt away and emerge floating on a cloud. Let yourself be pampered and enjoy our excellent staff’s in-depth knowledge on holistic wellness.
