Enjoyed being at Rockley Beach

Great beach with great facilities like shops for refreshments. It does get busy I the afternoons but there are plenty of sunbeds anytime of the day!

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

The highlight of this spot is to stop at the Tiki bar on a hot afternoon for 1 of their signature libations. Then head across the highway to Bert's Bar, unofficial Caribbean home of the Ottawa Senators.

We were on a cruise ship and we took a taxi to Rockley Beach ( adjacent to ACCRA ) It was the nicest beach in the Caribbean and we have been to many islands. Taxi was $16 round trip and $15 for two chairs and an umbrella. The many shades of blue are indescribable .The sand is soft and the... More

Accra is an excellent beach with soft sand, rolling waves and some light shade. Truly a stunning place and in my top three Barbados beaches (Crane, Miami, Accra). My biggest issue with Rockley Beach is with the vendors who rent chairs/umbrellas pushing people around who are using towels. In Barbados, you have a right to put your towel on the... More

During our 8 days in Barbados, we checked out 4 beaches... this became our go-to! The sand is soft and the beach is clean, without rocks or coral... nice to walk on and easy in and out. The surf is calmer in the morning and revs up in the afternoon. Everything you might need is right there... beach chairs and... More

Everything a Caribbean Beach should be. Beautiful white sand with bars within easy reach for a beer and a snack. Enjoyed Jason's food and drink quite a few lunchtimes. Swimming, walking, reading and sunbathing, most enjoyable.

Yes, it is crowded but we never had an issue finding a chair and umbrella. The guys that rent them out are very quick and helpful. Lots of food and souvenir vendors there. There is a washroom too. Don't forget to grab your TP as you walk in. They don't put TP in the stalls there (?) Water was incredible.... More
