“Rockley Beach Barbados”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Fantastic place to chill out and relax. We managed to enjoy a Rum Punch or two from the excellent Tiki Bar as well.

“Great beach bar and beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

This is a fun beach with a great Tiki bar at one end. However, if you are not a strong swimmer you may find the waves a bit choppy if all you want to do is splash around. Another advantage of this beach is it is right by bus stops, food carts and the fabulous eaterie Just Grillin - one of the best bargain food spots in Barbados!

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

I've never seen water so clear turquoise. The beaches were clean. Many locals asked if we were interested in buying "cigarettes", that eas uncomfortable!

“Rockley Beach ROCKS!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We had limited time to go to Rockley and wouldn’t you know there is rush hour type traffic through town (weird to think of a traffic jam on a tropical island LOL). Our taxi driver said because of Christmas everyone was in town shopping for presents. So the 20 minute drive took us 45 minutes, which left us only an hour at Rockley. What a shame because this beach was gorgeous!! Rather crowed with a lot of chairs and umbrellas at the back of the beach, but the beach was about 200 yards long and beautiful blue water. We walked the beach a couple times and then went to the “food court”, which is a few shacks that you can get food and drinks. Both were very good, I had a Barbados dish, flying fish which was very good. The drive back was much shorter, not sure if he went a different route or traffic had calmed down.
