Nice spot to have a drink and admire the beach. All needs met and it seems they provide a range of entertainment suitable for all the family throughout the week.

Book early in the week to reserve your table for the Friday night fire show. Awesome talent, skill and entertainment. Wood fired pizzas were amazing and well priced! Bar accepts Australian currency as well as Vatu. You won’t be disappointed with this place!

A nice ambience with good bar food. Great location on the beach. The entertainment nights were not our thing as these are more family oriented. A good lunch venue.

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!
