Pelican Bar Review
One of the funkiest places in Jamaica to down a cold Red Stripe, this whimsical structure sits on stilts ½ mi (1 km) offshore between Treasure Beach and Black River, atop a small sandbar, and reachable only by boat. It has become a local legend and a mandatory stop for many visitors to the South Coast. The place serves platters of lobster and other fresh seafood for lunch and dinner. Floyde Forbes (who runs the bar) or one of the hotels of Treasure Beach and Black River can arrange boat transportation, although these short rides can be pricey.
