We had a really great time at the pelican bar. It is a special place and prices are definitely okay. 400 Jamaican dollar for a beer. There are boat shuttles from Perrotee, between 10-20$. Floyd created a magic place.

Beautiful thatch hut on a sand bar out sea. They have refreshments and food. If you're lucky and the water is very clear you can swim with stingrays. They also have small souvenir shops with beautiful crafts from locals.

Was super excited to come here. Very disappointed in our experience. They just want to sell you some goods. No excitement. No involvement. Bar ?? What Bar?? Tried to order lunch.. no food yet.. Left there broke, disappointed and hungry.

Didn't live up to the hype this place gets.. kinda boring actually.. no music.. the bar if that's what you call it was unorganized and you felt like you were interrupting their game of dominos, we tried to order food but they had no fish...

We have loved this place in the past, but over the years, big boats from the local luxury hotels are bring guests over and it's definitely sucked away the charm. :(

We played dominoes, got a bit of wood engraved with our names and learned how to scale a fish. Snorkeled and bought a few trinkets. Great spot

Sorry I just saw this Yes if your little person is a good listener it will be awesome to go to the pelican and take a picture once your names have been carved into the planks #livelife #makememories
