The ride there was fun, but bumpy. I would not recommend for those who get sea sick easily. I noticed there were license plates from all over the U.S. so bring a little momento to leave behind. The grilled fish or lobster is very good!

I went to the pelican bar in early April and really enjoyed it. We took a boat out from the black river tours area and on the way we saw a family of Dolphins which was pretty awesome. The bar itself it's on a sand mound sort of thing so you get that awesome clear turquoise water and white sand... More

My husband and I decided to go here after we saw it on the Travel Channel. I am so glad that we did! What a wonderful experience! It was about and hour and 45 minutes from where we stayed in Negril, but so worth it. The rum punch and Red Stripe were delicious! The lobster was amazing! I would definitely... More

There is only one place like the Pelican Bar! From Basil's or other beachside places nearby, you can only get here by swimming (way too far into the sea for that, unless you're an Ultimate-endurance kind of athlete) or by boat. Everyone should experience it at least once!

A long boat ride from black river made this place even more alluring. Nestled in shallow waters basically in the middle of the sea! It's pure magic. Very relaxing way to spend the afternoon. Your forced to chill. No restrooms or places to wash your hands but no worries take care of your business before your boat ride. Everyone is... More

interesting location! you have to take a boat out to it, obviously. when we got there, you can see the epitome of "jamaica time" there -- everyone was all chilled out and relaxed. it was nice to sit in the sun on the dock area. a few people were playing dominoes. inside the bar there are licenses and flags from...

First of all, I would categorize this as a Treasure Beach attraction rather than Negril...it must take forever to get there from Negril? This bar is a wonderful place to spend a low-key afternoon. Grab a beer and find a place to sit outside on the boardwalk area and relax! A nice place to chat with fellow travelers as well.... More

My husband and I took this tour from Sandals Whitehouse on Feb. 27th and what a great experience! The catamaran leaves directly from the resort and is about an hour to an hour and a half. Once you arrive you get to explore this unique Jamaican place. There's a lobster meal you can have for purchase that I hear is... More
