Rockley Beach, Hastings

#3 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, Hastings Edition.

  • Relatively long and clean Beach, although a large Hotel resides on the western Edge, the Beach is not crowded. You have enough Space to lie on your Own Towel. 6 out of 7 Days I saw Turtles in the Waves here, some Holidaymakers have followed them with Snorkeling.

  • The best beach in Barbados

  • Beautiful beach. Clear water. Waves can get a bit strong - be cautious! Right in walking distance of shops, restaurants, bars. Right beside Accra Hotel/Accra Beach. Very busy tourist beach. Some locals trying to sell you things. Just kindly say no thanks and they will leave you alone. You have to pay for chairs and umbrellas here. $15 US a day for 2 chairs and an umbrella.
