Small beach with lots of shade. Very rough water during our stay, don't know if this is typical. Can rent lounge chairs, free parking, small bar and vendor kiosks available.

Rockley Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Barbados, it is very wide, has a moderate level of vegetation and nice for short walks or lengthy swims by experience swimmers. A must visit for travellers

What a fantastic place to chill out and recoup. Having a very busy year we decided we would visit our timeshare at South Beach Resort Barbados. The resort is right opposite Rockley Beach!
