This is bar is IN the ocean! We took a boat ride from Jakes and it was 30 minutes. Our boat captains were Kevin and Adrian. They were so great! It would not have been the same experience without them. This bar is in the...More

Unique place! Where else can you go to a bar/restaurant right on the ocean! We had some drinks (red stripe beer for my husband: rum and coke for me) enjoyed a lobster lunch, reggae music and carved our names into the bench. You can also...More

The only excursion we did while staying at Villa Gilgal for a girl's trip (see separate trip review - in a word outstanding) was to visit Pelican Bar. Very chill spot with flags and souvenirs and carved names of people who have been there before....More

You have to get out to the Pelican Bar. It is just such a cool place...we were the second boat there and we're told we had to wait 8 minutes to order our beers. We thought it was due to operating hours - nope it's...More

When in the area, this is a must see! A large tiki bar built off the coast on a sandbar...does it get any cooler than that? The big catch was not knowing before hand that there is a charge to have a boat bring you...More

The Pelican Bar is a bar constructed of driftwood out in the middle of the ocean so the only way to get to it is by boat and to call it rustic is an understatement. The location is awesome, and boat ride out to the...More

It's a great experience, you can get a company to do the transfers (we used Joe Cools, really good), and then one of the local fishermen will take you out to the bar for a small fee and wait for you.
