Rockley Beach, Hastings

4.4
#2 of 8 in Beaches in Christ Church Parish
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.

  • Beautiful beach and facilities are good and clean.
  • 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!

  • Rockley beach....clue in the name! Rocks in the water when only up to waist deep far better beaches Maxwell way. Very wavy too. Plus side gift shops behind beach with parking.
  • The best beach ever. Me and my sons loved it to bits. Nice smooth sandy , wavy, good to play in the waves and in the sand. You have all favilities you need. A little bar and restaurant area, nice and clean toilet shower and changing room, beach souvenire shops, beautiful shore and a wooden walk path on the shore with pubs and clubs.
