We looked at lots of resorts and were just lucky we booked on this beach. Wide beach of white sand, nice gentle slope out to the water. Perfect for sunbathing and bouncing around in the gentle waves. Could not have been happier with our choice.

A beautiful place for a beautiful view! Walk along the boardwalk on a sunny day! Various restaurants along the way.

Great beach at the end of the boardwalk. Lots of sun loungers and parasols...we thought the best ones were the turquoise ones towards the far end of the beach. They were the most comfortable, padded cushions and seemed almost new. You got a bottle of water each when you hired the lounger and the parasol. Drinks were available from the... More

Great for relaxing. You have to pay for the umbrella and lounging chair, make sure to bring your towel to lay on the chair. you could also get a chair and sit below the trees for free. Its a really nice place. so many souvenirs around and you can order for food. Great place for romantic trips but gets pretty... More

We have been to many beaches in Barbados and love Rockley. There is a very nice artificial reef for snorkeling that is between two large metal rods off shore. TIP: If you rent 2 beach chairs with umbrella at the Tiki Bar, it costs $20 or 30 US but you get a credit for that much money at the restaurant/bar.... More

Felt they could smarten it up by investing in some new sunbeds as the ones there were getting past there best unless you paid for some newer ones at much higher rates near tiki bar .

Rockley Beach traditionally has been a "must do" when I visit Barbados! While it isn't a particularly long beach, it offers easy access to the sea and good swimming any time of the day or evening. Accessible from a number of hotels nearby, it is the beach of choice for swimming for locals and tourists.

We spent the day at Rockley Beach- near the Tiki Bar. We were able to rent chairs and umbrellas. There were 5 of us and they brought out enough chairs for all of us. The servers from Tiki bar waited on us throughout the day. We rented a paddleboard for an hour ($15 USD for 1 hour). The beach was... More

My husband and I have been to Barbados more than 100 times. We love everything about it...the beaches, food, good water and lovely people. There are many good beaches but this one is the best by far. It is very suitable for young children as it has a very gradual drop off, gentle waves good for body surfing. It is... More
