The tour begins at Pelican Island, which was a small uninhabited island that once existed off the west coast of Bridgetown and Fontabelle, in St Michael, Barbados. According to historical record, the island received its name from brown pelicans that would nest there. There is now a tourist attraction called The Pelican Village ("Pelican Crafts Centre") in the area, a port, as a tribute to the separate island that once existed there. The Pelican Craft Center is the largest arts and crafts center in the Caribbean with shops and many workshops at which visitors can take a tour and watch the craftsmen creating glass creations, pottery and visit a cigar factory and see how cigars are made. All the crafts are designed and made by local Barbadians.
