St. Elizabeth Pelican bar
If you are looking for the perfect “get away from it all” experience then look no further than the Pelican Bar, a rustic wooden bar built on a sandbank a quarter of a mile out to sea, halfway between Black River and Treasure Beach. The Pelican Bar is the perfect place to spend the day being busy doing nothing, sunbath, drink beer, swim in the shallow waters, eat fresh fried fish or even bring along your fishing/ snorkeling gear to catch your own dinner!
In 2001 the bar was completed and named “The Pelican Bar” after the large flocks of Pelicans who rested on the sandbank.

One of the most magnificent sights on the south coast main road is Bamboo Avenue, in the Holland area of St. Elizabeth Parish. Bamboo Avenue is a two and a half mile stretch of road between Lacovia and Middle Quarters which is lined with giant bamboo plants which tower above the road and cross in the middle to form a shady tunnel. The avenue was established in the 17th century by the owners of the Holland Estate to provide shade for travelers and to protect the road from erosion.
