The South Coast Boardwalk: The fantastic new boardwalk runs from Rockley Beach for approximately 1 kilometre towards Bridgetown. The boardwalk starts just below Accra Beach Hotel, running parallel to Hastings Main Road, stopping just short of Beachgate.
Not only does the boardwalk run side by side to the beautiful turquoise sea and white sand, but it has also been complimented with strategically planned view points and landscaped gardens, to let you enjoy the views of the South Coast and the incredible sunsets.
The multi million dollar project has brought new life to the area, linking hotels and apartments, local restaurants and bars. The boardwalk opened in December 2008 and is being used by tourists and locals, either walking to the beach or local businesses, or simply utilizing the new facility to exercise, meet up with friends and enjoy the views.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Sitting here on our last day, listening it the bells of the nearby church chime 7:00 am with the back-drop of soothing ocean waves as I sip on my morning coffee pondering all the blessings that I have. This is our 6th visit to the island of Barbados and our 2nd time staying with Tina and Philip at their Beachgate property. Karma and good fate brought me here last year and will never again stay anywhere else. I pack up to leave, and I am rejuvenated, ready to face the day-to-day trials of our life back in Ottawa ... For another year at least :) Should good fortune bring you to this listing, do not hesitate, as you will not be disappointed. There is not one thing I could find fault with this lovely home away from home. The accommodations are well represented in the photos. You are close enough to everything you may need and yet far enough away to find peace in watching the world go by around you. In fact, in the last week I have wandered no further than a 10 minute walk in either direction to find our evening meals, when I chose not to cook. Barbados is an island rich in history. Once you get a Bajan to smile they radiate friendship and goodwill. Getting off the well beaten tourist tracks you will see beauty all around you. Unfortunately for you, dear reader, I have booked this accommodation for years to come, as my oasis of tranquility the first two weeks of every February. Not only have I found a place to lay my weary head, I have the honor of calling my hosts friends. Tina and Philip are gems and I thank them for all that they have done to ensure our vacation is nothing short of perfect.
