Holidays to Rockley are a totally tropical affair. From the pristine sands, right down to the cool calypso music, this Caribbean getaway was made for taking things nice and slow.
You can’t go wrong with a Cruise & Stay holiday to Barbados – but if you’re seeking true relaxation, amazing beaches and that irresistible Bajan charm, make sure you book some time in Rockley.
A peaceful suburb
Rockley is a small resort situated on the southern coast of Barbados. Nestling on the outskirts of Bridgetown, the island capital, this lovely little town is all about peace, tranquillity and making the most of the sun. It boasts a beautiful stretch of coastline, a large golf course, a shopping centre and a sprinkling of relaxing restaurants and luxury hotels. The resort’s close proximity to Bridgetown also makes it a convenient base for island day-trips.
Relax on Rockley Beach
Visit Rockley before or after a cruise, and you'll see that the main beach is what you picture when you hear the word “paradise”. Here, soft dunes of white sand ripple out alongside warm turquoise sea. Though the water is calm and safe for children, the beach is also popular amongst watersports junkies. Kiosks run along the strip, serving up cold drinks and Bajan snacks, but you’ll also find a couple of beachside bars – ideal for retreating to when the sun goes down.
Things to do
Much of the action in Rockley takes place at the beach, but venture away from the sand and you’ll discover plenty to keep you busy. One highlight is the Quayside Centre, a shopping plaza where you can pick up souvenirs and sample the local Bajan cuisine. Rockley Golf Course is also worth a visit if you’re looking for some light activity – with nine holes to play and a restaurant on site, it’s the perfect place to spend half a day.
The delights of Bridgetown
Travel into the centre of Bridgetown and you’ll find a city bursting with colour and charm. Wet your whistle at the Mount Gay Rum Distilleries, tour the historic George Washington House or take in a cricket game at the Kensington Oval – wherever you go, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Come nightfall, Bridgetown also boasts a great bar scene, but for the best partying you’ll want to head to St Lawrence Gap, just east of Rockley.
