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.

Situated in Pelican Point, this beach is on the East edge of Grand Bahama Island. You might think about stopping by regardless of whether you are staying nearby. When you need to spend the afternoon away from tourist-filled hotspots, you should venture a little farther from the city, and a little closer to Pelican Point Beach.

How to Access The Beach
Pelican Point Beach is accessible off Grand Bahama Highway, which runs parallel to the beach.
