This is a fabulous attraction and it is FREE. Try to go mid week or in the quieter months, but it is worth seeing at any time. If it is mid summer, try to get there early as parking is a little crowded. The pelicans...More

This occurs everyday at 12:00 noon. It is amazing how the Pelicans now it is feeding time, because they start arriving from 11;30 am. You are allowed to take close up photos.

3rd time here and always love it. Crossing over the bridge at 11.30 and seeing the 30 odd Pelicans already waiting for dinner time at 12. Friendly lady from the Co-Op also feeding & providing funny commentary. Well worth a look.

That was a great experience to be so close to these gorgeous birds! The woman was friendly and told a lot of interesting facts about pelicans. Nice to see that birds are being looked after well.

These wonderful and large birds gather at around 11.00 am for their feeding at midday. We saw about 10 birds and they were active and gave us a delightful time. Not a big deal but the kids who were there really enjoyed the activity. LOCAL...More

I am sure the birds will be there but unsure if the Co-op will be open. However because San Remo is reliant upon tourism, I feel it will be open.

The Pelican Feeding is a free event, on the beach right next to San Remo Fishermans Co-op. It takes place every day at noon, and usually lasts 20 to 30 minutes. If your boat tour leaves at 1pm, you'll have plenty of time to... More
