Beautiful!

Clean, quiet, and most important to me no vendors harassing you. The perfect place to sunbathe in peace.

Great food, good service, took the table overlooking the ocean, no crashing waves, really calm waters- has a floating bridge if you want to go to the edge before your food arrives. Had food seafood with curry flavor, it was tasty, slightly priced though, but then food in general is priced everywhere..!

Rockley Beach isn't the picture postcard Barbados beach where waves gently kiss the shore; all of those are up the West Coast. It is however a wonderful beach as the photo I'm including will show.

This is a beautiful beach but doesn't compare to the other treasures along the west coast. It could be that it always seems a little cramped and crowded because of the location, but it's not at the top of my beach-must-do list....
