|"The Pelican Bar" Jamaica' 09|
A two mile boat ride away from the shores of Negril will take you to this cool shack, built on a sand bar off the coast. It was an adventure to get there, and it was well worth it!
We had to find the right guy to take us there by boat and the dock where he was. As he was driving the motor boat, he called ahead to the restaurant to place our food order, asking us which fish we wanted them to catch for us or if we wanted lobster instead. So, upon our arrival we enjoyed just caught and freshly prepared seafood accompanied by an ice cold Red Stripe, Jamaica's #1 beer.
While we were waiting for them to cook our lunch, which was very yummy, we leisurely lounged in the hammock and played several games of dominoes with the locals. Before leaving, we snorkeled in the crystal clear water right off the front doorstep, which was full of beautiful tropical fish and gracious sting rays. Had a blast! Highly recommended if you are ever in the area. It's even in Lonely Planet! You'll have to ask locals how to get there from Negril though.
