A Musing Elephant and I exchanged a few comments about a recent post on her blog. When she mentioned that one of favorite places in Jamaica is Pelican Bar, I felt I had “met” a kindred spirit. Pelican Bar is one of my favorite places as well.
Our exchanges took me back to my first trip to the bar and the memories I have which serve me now on this cold day in the north east.
Pelican Bar is located on a sand bank about a quarter of a mile off the south western coast of Jamaica between Black River and Treasure Beach.
As Floyd, the owner, tells it, the idea for the bar came to him in a dream. He built it, and they’ve been coming.
Pelican Bar has been named one of the sexiest swim-up bars and has a fan page on Facebook.
The only way to get there is by boat so don’t think of going if you’re afraid of the water or if the sea is rough.
