Heard a few bits about this place so was very keep you go It’s a great experience, the sea it beautiful and lovely to swim in drinking an ice cold beer The bar is great, quite small and uneven so watch your step Drinks are...reasonably priced and could be plentiful We were only there for an hour as it was part of a multi venue trip but if you get the opportunity then don’t miss out There is a lot of marijuana being smoked which is unavoidable so if this would be a problem perhaps don’t goMore

You won’t be disappointed The vibe, the atmosphere, there is no way you can get to this bar and be miserable If you don’t do anything else in Jamaica this will be enough What an experience (Take water shoes)

This has got to be one of the most unique places I have ever visited and it is an absolute must see! How Floyd managed to build this in the ocean I will never know but its beautiful. I would highly recommend a visit, little...local boats take you over and you can have your names carved into the wood, plenty of cold drinks available also. I would say its worth using the toilet on the mainland though as its literally a hole in the ground... but can't knock his imagination!More

A family trip to the bar was worth every penny. Our Captain was Joseph and he is the best. He picked us up from our villa at Jakes. Covid protocols were fully in effect. He stopped so we saw dolphins and the team at the...bar were very helpful and accommodating too. a few drinks, got out names carved in the wood and swam.More

The food and drinks were very average HOWEVER the unique location makes up for the overall blandness of everything associated with this place.

Nice staff/bartenders, got our initials carved into the dock, great photos courtesy of Radonasky, and amazingly talented artisans (carvers, painters etc.) for reasonably priced local souvenirs that are truly art, not junk!

Pelican bar has been a place we have wanted to visit for some time and whilst we were staying at Treasure Beach we finally took the trip and I’m so happy we did. A bar on stilts made up of drift wood almost a mile...out to sea, who would have thought it! Such a unique and wonderful place, the vibe is so chilled and truly Jamaican. A definite must is to make your mark on the driftwood, we joined thousands before whom have had their name or message carved in the wood, there isn’t a price that hasn’t got something carved in. A highly recommended tripMore

We get in an old rickety boat. We spend 20 minutes heading towards a bar in the middle of the ocean. We get off the boat and the fun begins. Imagine fresh fish, Red Stripe, and a sand bar to hang out on. We drove...2 hours from Montego Bay and it was worth it...More

Went to Floyd's on an overcast day in early November (damn you ETA!). It was as expected. There were four of us and there was one other group at Floyd's when we arrived. So, we kind of had the place to ourselves. The water was...cloudy due to ETA, so snorkeling was not great. Limited bar menu (we stuck to Red Stripe Light) and we didn't eat there. It is a unique experience and maybe it would be more fun when it's packed (maybe not). I'm not sure I HAVE to go back, but I'm glad I went.More

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...ocean, with an amazing Jamaican vibe, mixed drinks and beer, food (but we didn't try any since we just had lunch), beautiful views and a great place to hang out with friends. We snorkeled around the bar to see tons of fish while some of my friends just stood in the water and drank. It's a must see!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...swim around the restaurant. I thought this place was way cool! We did this at the end of our Black River safari tour. A great overall combo.More

We went here on a cloudy/rainy day - booked through Amstar at our resort. It would have been much better to go on a sunny warmer day. it was cool to walk around and see the items posted from all over the world. One of...our group had the lobster there and the rest of us had drinks. Rum punch was $8 each, we stuck to beer! Some stingrays around and music was on with dominoes being played. Glad that we went, but not sure that I need to go back.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....We had Red Stripes and swam off the pier and you feel like you're in the middle of the ocean because...you are! We didn't have any food so can't speak to that. We went on a very windy day but it was not crowded at all and small and large groups were coming and going, we stayed about an hour. It's a quick boat ride out here and definitely something to see and experience while you're in the area.More
