Pelican Bay Beach Facilities
Pelican Bay Beach Facilities, Berms, Boardwalk and Pelican Bay Parks.
Pelican Bay beach facilities are located at the end of each boardwalk. The south boardwalk entrance is at the Commons. The north boardwalk entrance is at the SandPiper parking lot entrance in the 6800 block of Pelican Bay Blvd. at the western-most corner of the parking lot. Beach side pavillons provide food and beverage service, deck areas, and restrooms with showers and dressing areas. Pelican Bay has access to almost three miles of beach.
The Berms and Boardwalks
Two berms separate Pelican Bay upland areas from its estuaries and bays. They serve three purposes: restricting rainwater runoff from entering conservation areas, acting as roadways for trams serving the beaches, and providing a path for walkers, joggers, bikers and skaters. Bikers and skaters must travel at safe speeds. Berms are only open to members and their guests.
Canoes and Sailboats
The Foundation provides both canoes and sailboats for members’ use. Canoes are at a canoe dock on the north boardwalk . Reservations are required for the canoes and may be made at the Foundation Community Center. Sailboats are provided for use on the Gulf of Mexico to Pelican Bay Sailing Club Members. Membership is for experienced sailors who are 18 years of age or older. The annual fee is $25.00.
