We had a really great time at the pelican bar. It is a special place and prices are definitely okay. 400 Jamaican dollar for a beer. There are boat shuttles from Perrotee, between 10-20$. Floyd created a magic place.

Beautiful thatch hut on a sand bar out sea. They have refreshments and food. If you're lucky and the water is very clear you can swim with stingrays. They also have small souvenir shops with beautiful crafts from locals.

I would not recommend the Pelican Bar for a family trip. Gifts and drinks were very overpriced. Cool setting though.
