Rest up on the sand or hit the waves at Crane Beach. Originally a port, the beach gained its name from the large crane that would load and unload ships, perched atop the cliff that frames the beach. Now sitting on top of the cliff you'll find a beach resort, with a bar offering extensive views of the coastline. The beach itself offers plenty of room for relaxation and beach sports, while good waves also make the beach popular with boogie boarders. Planning Saint Philip Parish trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.
