3 Best Beach Bars in the World

Imagine yourself sitting by the beach with toes in the sand and sipping a chilled beer as the sun sets over the ocean. Picturesque isn’t it? There is something magical about beach bars, which makes the heart skip a beat as you laze around listening to the crashing of waves. Here are three bars that stand out head and shoulders above the rest. With a perfect ambience, ocean views and a lazy seaside vibe, these bars are the first amongst equals.


Located on Miami’s famed South Beach, this large ocean front complex comprises a bar and restaurant facing the Atlantic Ocean. Visitors can lounge about in stylish cabanas, hammocks, day beds and lounge chairs scattered along the waterfront.A casual restaurant during the day, it turns into the city’s most glamorous club after sundown.


Located inside the Maldivian resort of Gili Lankanfushi, this bar is built on stilts over the shallow lagoon surrounding the Lankafushi Island in the North Male Atoll. A pier leads to the wooden bar which has lounge beds set around a small inner pool with panoramic views of the Indian Ocean all around. The bar rustles up delicious fare made with fresh catch and other local produce.


It’s pretty, no-frill, but the Pelican Bar has something else going for it—location. Smack dab in the middle of the ocean, a mile away from the Parottee Beach in Jamaica, this bar (the brainchild of a local fisherman) is named after the pelicans that circle around the underwater sandbar it’s built on. Patrons can enjoy their drink while wading in waist-deep water: regulars recommend the Pelican Perfection - the in-house special.
