With a wonderful new boardwalk this is nice spot for lazing on the beach as well as strolling on the beach. Rockley seems pretty friendly with a mix of restaurants and hotels along a quite busy road. There are several beach bars, a good amenity block, lifeguards and beach vendors in stalls. Visit the vans selling traditional barbadian meals on... More

Love the beach here nice and quiet. Shallow waters and friendly recliner men. Friendly rum shacks all viewing for your business and plenty of food nearby. Don't forget to visit Chilly Mood ice cream parlour.

If you like to be with all the other people that like beautiful water then this is the place for you! There really isn't any more beautiful water! The crowd is huge.

Best beach for swimming. Lots of food and bars to eat and drink at right there. Pleasant vendors. Lots of people on the beach but it's huge so you don't feel it's crowded.

This is a really nice beach with gift stalls on the land at the rear. We stayed near here some years ago and came back for a look. It has not changed much at all apart from a new bar at the opposite end to the Accra Beach hotel.

I am a beach bum and when I visit a beach I must go in. When I got in the water with my snorkeling gear, I was taken back at how clear the water was, even if you take out the mask. There's a reef just about 50 meters from shore that you can visit and see beautiful tropical fish.,... More
