Floyds Pelican Bar in Jamaica is one of the most unique places to visit that you may ever have the pleasure to experience. The bar and restaurant are located about a mile offshore on a sand bar located in Parottee Bay on the South Coast of Jamaica inbetween Black River and Treasure Beach and it is by far the coolest place I have ever drank a Red Stripe beer.
Pelican Bar is a well weathered but remarkably stable thatch hut built in the middle of the Caribbean Sea from driftwood, palm fronds and coconut tree trunks driven down into the sand like stilts on the edge of a small reef offering some of the best snorkeling, freshest seafood and homestyle Jamaican cooking on the island. Pelican Bar is owned and operated by Floyd who decided he wanted to do something different to attract people away from the tourist traps and down to his cool spot and it worked out perfectly. Floyd gets a steady stream of visitors to his unique paradise hideaway and the tourists who end up there and the wonderful conversations had are as much fun as the sun, snorkeling and panoramic views. I read an article recently that listed Pelican Bar as one of 15 most unique places to visit but I cannot seem to find it now. I certainly agree it’s a special place.
My first trip to meet Floyd was with friends Sara and Alan on an eco tour in Jamaica which included stops for the Black River Safari and YS Falls which are always great but Pelican Bar was too cool and I go back as often as possible now. We spent a lazy afternoon snorkeling the shallow waters and laid out in the sun before we enjoyed a wicked fresh lobster dinner and one of the best views in the world. Unfortunately on this trip we did miss the great sunsets because a small rainstorm blew in but the sheer power and beauty of nature made up for things and we had an excellent time just chillin out with some cold Red Stripe beers and a spliff to make the time pass.
Not every Pelican Bar tour includes a tour to Treasure Beach but doing both is very easy and many people who visit Floyds do so on an extended boat ride from Jakes Place in Treasure Beach and select private boats will make the trip up from Black River Safari for a full day tour on the water. Every tour to Pelican Bar does include a cool boat ride and some of the most beautiful scenery in Jamaica and makes for a great way to enjoy a leisure afternoon and beautiful sunset with loved ones and friends.
