Thank you Kylie for your review of the Beach Bar. You are right, we do get the most beautiful sunsets on our side of the island. Nothing better than sipping a yummy cocktail and watching the sunset.....ah island bliss.

Hideaway Island Resort is just a short (1-2min) ferry ride away. The main attraction is the reef.

Description
A great place to hang out for the day. The Beach Bar is famous for its wood fire pizzas, but offers a large choice of alternatives as well. The kids just love playing on the beach with all the free water toys while Mum & Dad relax in the beer garden. Sit back and enjoy the stunning sunsets over Mele Bay whilst enjoying a cold beer or glass of wine. Keep an eye out for the special "Friday Night Fire Dancing" evenings, Tuesday Movie nights on Port Vila's biggest screen, right on the beach and our Sunday Sessions starting with live music from 1pm followed by our great new show "Sunday Kustam Karnival" where Bank's Snake Dancers meet our talented Circus Performers". Something for everyone at The Beach Bar!
