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.

Located in Pelican Point, this beach is on the East coast of Grand Bahama Island. You might think about stopping by even if you aren't staying in the vicinity. Pelican Point Beach is a distinguishable relaxation spot because it's one of the best spots for escaping over-crowded hangouts in the town proper. Most other beaches you'll come across in the Bahamas offer views of the sea that are just as pretty, but tend to be more crowded because they're lined with some of the most famous hotels and restaurants.

How to Access The Beach
