Our trip to the Pelican Bar was AWESOME!! It had just rained so the water was a little cloudy, but that did not stop us from having a great time! If you are looking for a 5 star bar, this is not the place for...More

The Pelican Bar was definitely a highlight of visiting Negril. If you're looking for bells and whistles, this isn't the place for you, however, if you want to go somewhere that's super chill with great swimming, you'll find it here! Everyone was nice and easy...More

We've been coming here since the Pelican Bar was opened. It used to be one of our very favorite spots--a bar/restaurant on a sandbar in the Caribbean, accessible only by boat. The local boat captains made it a point to bring their guests here for...More

$15.00 per person gets you round trip passage to the bar. If you are driving out there yourself stop at the first set of little huts on left. Meet Porsche. She will have her son take you out to the bar. It’s a nice smooth...More

This is a truly unique tour - I km off shore in the middle of the Sea. The catamaran (we left from Sandals South Coast) to the Pelican bar was a bit rough, but full of fun. Once there, we were shuttled to the bar...More

Such a unique experience, well worth the visit. Not much to it, a bar on stilts over a sandbar/reef but nothing like anything I've ever been to before. Have a drink, look around, have a swim just absorb it all. Went out to the Pelican...More

Neat place to say you've been. Middle of the ocean so you take a boat. Not a lot to do if you don't swim. Little crowded but friendly people. Grab a rum punch and red stripe and enjoy for a little while. They cook fresh...More

The Pelican Bar should not be confused with any bar you may have visited. With no electricity your beverage may not be the coldest but the fresh fish will be just that. Some of the best food in Jamaica can be found at venues... More

The ride out there would be about an hour and half or so. They have standard bar menu, mix drinks and beer food as well. If you make the journey you will it be disappointed.
