Attractions near The Crane Residential Resort
Laze on Crane Beach
One of the biggest advantages to staying at The Crane is its direct access to one of the Caribbean's picture-postcard beaches. The hotel is connected to Crane Beach by a staircase of 93 steps or a lift. Once you're there, you can relax on the hotel's loungers and get shade under its parasols.
The sand on Crane Beach is white and powdery; the sea is shallow for long stretches and is the clearest turquoise imaginable. You'll can even buy drinks from the hotel itself or the few vendors who stroll along the beach.
Visit St John's Church
Perched on an inland hill, St John's Church is a building that dates back to 1645. It was rebuilt in 1676 and overlooks the sea, beach and much of the east coast of the island. The masonry and stained glass windows are examples of beautiful 17th Century Anglican architecture. Inside, you'll see much well-crafted woodwork, including the pulpit which is constructed with six different kinds of wood.
The cemetery is also something to admire, with a number of fascinating headstones dating back centuries. There are no fees to visit and, i you're so inclined, the church is still an active parish.
