The Pelican Bar is a rustic wooden bar, with thatch roof built on a sand bar in the middle of the ocean. Just a quarter of a mile out to sea, half-way between Black River and Treasure Beach. Just a 20 minute boat ride from Katamah!
The Pelican Bar is the perfect place to spend the day being busy doing nothing; sunbath, drink beer, swim in the shallow waters, eat freshly caught fish lunch or even bring along your fishing gear and catch your own fish.
The Pelican Bar quite literally began life as a dream, local fisherman Floyd Forbes dreamt one night of a bar built out at sea, resting on stilts. The clarity of the dream inspired Forbes to set about building this bar, which he did by transporting large planks of wood on his fishing boat. In 2001 the bar was completed and it was given its name after the large flocks of Pelicans who rested on the sand bank.
It was originally used by Floyd and his friends to sit and take a break from a hard day's fishing. However, it didn't take very long for the local hotels to recognise the enormous potential of this picture perfect serenity.
Please be sure to pre-order your fish lunch when booking this tour with your local fisherman, for the ideal dining experience out at sea.
