Montego Bay

Pelican Bar

30


Treasure Beach,

Jamaica,

Made almost entirely of driftwood, the thatched-roof Pelican Bar is set on stilts on a small sandbar about half a mile offshore in Parotee Bay. Part bar and part restaurant, the circular structure is accessible only by boat and is furnished with low wooden benches and windmill-powered lights. Behind the bar, owner Floyd Forbes cooks freshly caught seafood over an open fire. The menu is limited but might include fried red snapper with vegetables and ginger sauce, served over rice and paired with Red Stripe. In addition to dinner, the surrounding waters also provide swimming and snorkeling opportunities.
