Great time

Came to the beach for a clean swimming beach, since our hotel coast was in the seaweed turnover week. Beach was beautiful, water was clean, not crowded at all.

I spent quite a few of my 12 days in Barbados at this beach because of the great waves it has for body-surfing. It's certainly not among the prettiest beaches on the island but it is a very convenient place to spend a day due to the nearby shops, ease of arriving, free showers, change rooms and the great coffee...

Beach well located and easily accessible. But, There is a lot of waste left by people, plastic glass, straws, empty bag, plate, bottle etc. The bins overwhelmed and it flows wastewater street as those of restroom, we can doubt ...

Great location and the stone/coral break-wall provides some protection from the waves...great for small children.

Our hotel was based on Rockley beach and it was great - the sandy beach is nice and wide and stretches right out into the sea - no or few rocks !

love the walk each morning on the beach. The men who take care of the chairs work really hard to keep the beach clean each day.

It's a lovely beach area with rolling waves but I am surprised that I hadn't read any comments on the heavy seaweed that came and went. From what I understand this is the third year that they've expeienced it in the spring. Unpredictable. It was a world of difference when we moved up to the Paynes Bay Area and the... More

This beach often has lots of people but that is why I like it. I rent a chair in the shade from the same old guy every winter and people watch. There are huts for vendors and small rum bars with good food. Cheffette is across the street for snack food and ice cream but best of all great rotis.... More
