Fodor's Review

This exquisite crescent of pink sand on the southeast coast was named not for the elegant long-legged wading bird but for the crane used to haul and load cargo when this area served as a busy port. Crane Beach usually has a steady breeze and lightly rolling surf that varies in color from aqua to turquoise to lapis and is great for bodysurfing. Access to the beach is either down 98 steps or via a cliff-side, glass-walled elevator on The Crane resort property. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (no fee); toilets. Best for: swimming; walking.
