We have been to Rockley Beach for years, and the beach is as lovely as ever. The facilities are ok, if somewhat tired. But they're there! There are numerous shops and food outlets nearby, and places to get drinks as well. There's shade for those who want it too! It's apparently where the recent David Attenborough baby turtles were filmed,... More

This beach area is busy every day. Cruise ship passengers bussed in every day,local tourists etc. Lots of amenities in this area, tiki bar to beer shacks and restaurants. The sand this year has a pink coral colour going on could be created by the vast amount of sea weed that washed up on the shores. Beach lounges for rent.... More

One of our favourite beaches during our trip! Perfect for sun bathing, evening strolls and dancing the night away to live music at the nearby Tiki Bar!

Rockley is immediately adjacent to Accra Beach and has the same perfect sand & sea, but it is a public beach with a few food stalls and watersports for hire.

One of the Most Beautiful Beaches you could possibly visit. Warm Turquoise water, with Beautiful White Sand and Umbrella and Chair Rentals if you so desire. A wonderful outdoor Bar with Sandwiches located right there also. We love to just hang out meet people and enjoy the day here. Don't miss, you'll diffently regret.

A lovely beach with good waves and clear water. No undertow as such, you just tended to be taken to the right and may need to exercise care as there are rocks to the far right. Best to stay left of the yellow lifeguard hut. We had lounger tickets from our hotel and paid $10 (Barbadian) for an umbrella. There... More

We stayed at the Accra Beach hotel, which is directly onto this beach. We chose this area because of the beach and the surrounding area. The beach is beautiful.....sheltered ....and quite big with loungers to hire. There are bars, traders and food sellers behind the beach by the road. Across the road are shops, cafes, ice cream shop.....everything you could... More
