‘Possibly the coolest bar in the world’
Under this front-page headline Decca Aitkinhead wrote a feature length double-page spread for The Guardian [Travel Magazine]:
“… Jamaica’s ultimate beach bar is the Pelican Bar run by Floyde Forbes just about a mile offshore from Treasure Beach… a remote rustic hideaway. Floyde claims he simply dreamt one night about a bar built on stilts out in the sea. The dream was uncommonly precise; it would be round, made of wood and thatched with palm fronds… By last summer, Floyde’s bar has become Treasure Beach’s biggest attraction. If you visit by day you’ll soon see why he called it Pelican Bar. Great flocks used to gather on the sandbar, and now they smother the roof of the bar, indifferent to the mesmerising turquoise watery mosaic below. Fishing boats taking visitors to see the crocodiles in Black River stop by summoning Floyde from his house ashore. He comes puttering out in what is barely bigger than a rowing boat, weighed down with fresh ice and supplies.”
