Pelican Bar, Negril – Jamaica
While it’s not technically on the sand, Pelican Bar is definitely one of the more unconventional beach bars. In fact, punters can only reach the ramshackle hut via a 20 minute boat ride. It’s worth the trip though as the end result is an icy cold beer and panoramic views of Jamaica’s crystal clear ocean. And of course the occasional pelican!
