“easy snorkeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

sea turtles, lots of colorful fish. one morning I saw an eagle ray and then swam with a sea turtle for 5 minutes. conditions very based on wind and current directions. best when it's calm. 100 yard swim. currents not bad. no sharks due to outside reefs. sunrise and sunset on water..

“Magnificent Beach and Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

This magnificent beach and bar location, Tiki Bar Accra Beach Rockley Barbados. This is truly a wonderful location to spend the day, with breathtaking turquoise waters and fine clean white sands this is a must location for couples family and children. Easy to get to by road, and you can't really miss it as the main road travels past the beach area and bar by about 50 metres. The Beach Bar is located on the left as you approach the waters edge and looks over the whole area from the wood designed bar area. There are also many restaurants and bars near by in either direction that you travel up or down the main road. There are also two supermarket stores one about 300 metres which is the smaller of the two, and one about a kilometre which is much bigger and has a greater selection of fresh fruits etc.

“Chilln' Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Spent a lot of time next to the Tiki Bar. Can't beat the the cost of umbrellas/chairs $30 US for all day usage and you get $30 back on the spot for food/drink vouchers. Saw snorkelers, surfers, and plenty just jump into the water. Sand is nice, and the beach is cleaned up in the mornings picking up seaweed and branches.

“Beautiful beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

Rockley beach is right of the main road and across the street from Quayside centre and food outlets. There are plenty of trees for shade and lots of beach chairs and umbrellas for rental. The beach does not feel overcrowded. The sand is lovely and the sea is beautiful. I don't usually spend a full day on the beach but had a lovely day. I will definitely be going back there next year.
