This is a bucket-list item for any trip to Jamaica. If you haven't done this and other off the charts spots, you really haven't seen Jamaica. Skip the tourist traps and go south...

DO NOT GO. We had a private tour and the driver suggested we visit the bar. It was a cool idea but the place and atmosphere is horrible. We arrived by a boat charter from shore. Literally a 5 minutes ride. Paid $100 for seven...More

We decided to come here because I read a bunch of articles claiming this was the coolest bar in the world. When we got there, there were barely any people, maybe 15 at most, no music was being played, and people were just sitting around....More

Pleasant view and many write about it. HOW TO GET THERE? Try reacing Pelicanbarboattoursbyportia.com She has two phone numbers, a decent boat and a very nice person. Ask her to include (small fee) a trip to Fort Charles Beach. Lovely, remote, untouched, peaceful and charming....More

The Pelican Bar is definitely a unique little bar and snack stop. Every surface is carved names of people who have traveled before you. The walls are decorated with travelers personal items; flags from their country, license plates from different states, trophies, tshirts, etc. The...More

Hi. It’s about 2 hours away. I drove myself, which was easy enough, but others use a tour company. Try island dream tours, you can find them on here
