This is a perfect spot to watch pelican feeding and for photos taking. It is worth visiting with the kids. Feeding starts at 1.30pm but go a little earlier and have a seafood lunch at Charis Seafood Restaurant just in front of the feeding spot.

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.

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
