After spending the day driving and going to YS falls and ziplining, we unwinded at floyds Pelican bar. It is so worth the trip. It's unique in every way and I have never seen anything like it. You can go swimming or just lay out on the boardwalk. I recommend bringing a towel or something to lay on because the... More

We sailed to the Pelican Bar to see the funny little landmark. Amazing it has stood for so long, but it really is quite solid. Pretty spot to sit in the shade or sun, look at the reef and have a cold drink.

Floyd built the Pelican Bar 14 years ago. It is almost 1 Km. off shore about 5 miles east of Black River. It is made entirely of driftwood, built on a sandbar occupied by (duh!) pelicans, and was built with permission from nobody. A couple of years ago the govt. insisted on washrooms, which he built on shore. His son... More

My husband and I came out here from Negril. We arranged a cab through our hotel to take us out to the bar. It was so worth the drive from Negril. It took us about an hour or so to get to the beach to take a boat out to the bar. We got there around 11 and there was... More

If nothing else, you must go to the Pelican Bar. You will never get this experience anywhere else. Trust me. The guys go out on the boat and spear fish and bring them back to grill for you. Great drinks, great company. Tremendous views!! Absolutely breathtaking!!

We hired a private boat from the Black River and did a cruise along there for a while before blasting out to Floyd’s for one of the best experiences of our holiday, and indeed our lives! This place can’t be beat, it’s so quirky and has a great chilled out and funky vibe. We arrived in the middle of a... More
