I'm sure this would be great on a slow day, but that was not our day. Very crowded, and few places to sit. Food was not very good. Easy swimming, but then you see a guy peeing off the deck into the water near the swimmers. Not really inviting you to go back into the water.

What a brilliant place. Being welcomed by Floyd while he's chillin in the corner, with a big reefa, sets the tone for the visit. Beer is cold and the rum is always tasty. Food is on offer, but I didn't try it myself, but it looked good. Don't forget that the toilets are downstairs.... :)

What a place! We came by boat from Treasure Beach and loved it. You hitch up alongside and climb aboard, grab a beer (or whatever) and relax in one of the most unique and special places. This bar sets the standard for cool.

My only regret involving my trip to the Pelican Bar was not bringing a camera! It's a ramshackle bar made of wood that while walking along you can see the Caribbean Sea underfoot. We watched sea creatures swim by, ate fresh snapper, drank an obscene amount of rum punch, and enjoyed the company of the young guys who work there.

This place is a must see. It is truly amazing. The drinks are reasonably priced and the fact that you can jump in the water and see hundreds of fish makes it an incredible experience. Make sure you take a snorkel.

This wasn't a planned trip we were meant to be heading else where but that was Closed so our guide suggested a trip here ,we were at the black river safari and he found a local fisherman to take us. Such a chilled out friendly place great for a swim and beer. This unique fascinating bar is well. Worth a... More

Like no other bar I've been to. It's like something out of Waterworld. You can only get there by boat. Worth the cost just to experience.
