Head down to Rockley Beach to enjoy the waves on this popular stretch of southern coast. The sandy beach offers plenty of room for sunbathing and beach sports, while the casuarina and sea-grape trees that line the sand provide a good amount of shade to cool off in. The southern section of the beach offers calmer waters, ideal for smaller kids, as rocks provide protection from the waves coming in. Elsewhere, try boogie boarding and windsurfing on the cresting waves. Browse the many colorful stalls and shacks selling locally made handicrafts, and grab a bite to eat and a refreshing drink from one of the small restaurant kiosks. Rockley Beach is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.

Pretty good beach. You will reach the bottom tens of meters from the shore. DON'T SUPPORT the guy with a monkey on a leash and don't take pictures with the poor animal!
The best beach to visit on the island. We drove around the island and visited so many beaches but ended up coming back to Rockley also known as Accra beach. If your staying in private accommodation definitely the best choice. Amazing beach for swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing. The water is turquoise and clean and the sand is white. Chairs and umbrella available to rent at the beach for a reasonable price. There's a car park and many places to eat around so literally you can spend the day at Rockley beach. Locals are very friendly always ready to help and if you're lucky you'll meet Becky, a green monkey which comes to beach every day with her owner. If one day I'll be coming back to Barbados this beach will be one of the reasons.
