Pelican Point Beach

Pelican Point is a small and friendly fishing village on the east end of Grand Bahama Island. The main beach here, Pelican Point Beach, is a sleepy little beach that often seems deserted for miles on end. Stay all day, then cozy up on a blanket or towel and watch the sunset -- it is said to be one of the best on the island.
