Seeing these big birds up close was really interesting. They are beautiful. And the feeding ritual allowed us to see them operate their majestic beaks. Well worth the visit.

Its a lovely spot and well worth a visit with the kids. Feeding starts at 1.30pm but go a little earlier and have a seafood lunch at Charis seafood's. The freshest seafood on the coast IMHO, great day out.

The first time I went here was in 2014. Now, the area where the fish is thrown to the pelicans needs to be fenced in. The people get very close to the pelicans, so the birds sometimes even need to walk through people. Some would...More

Pelicans curiously turn up at the appointed hour for the 130 feeding. Charis feeds the herd the fish scraps from their shop. Popular (getting close parking can be tough)

Everyday at 1:30pm the local fish munger brings out all the left over bones, heads, bits and pieces left from his days work and feeds the pelicans. VERY Cool to watch!

We were lucky enough to arrive just in time to see this after hearing about it from an Uber driver. The birds were waiting patiently and when fed just waddled down to the water to eat. They are such a contrast to seagulls. We enjoyed...More

Great fun to watch the interaction of the pelicans. The men who feed the pelicans from fish shop are most generous with their time and allowing visitors to feed and enjoy the experience.
