We went on the Friday night for the local fire show and dinner. We booked a table in advance which i would definitely recommend as it got quite busy! Also has happy hour and a nice place to watch the sunset!

We watched the fire dancers at our resort, so we instead ventured down to the Beach Bar on a Sunday afternoon to catch the circus performance instead with our three kids in tow. As the gateway to Hideaway Island and looking out West, we immediately...More

Just like so many back packers type bars around the world, so too the Beach Bar. A familiar menu (pizza/burger/ chips) and reasonable prices. Good views of hideaway island. And in true backpacker tradition - need to mention the loos. Clean and tidy and well...More

Went to the Beach Bar last night after reading reviews about the fire show and was not disappointed. The show was excellent! While it is a "free" show, there is a bucket passed around at the end for people to donate what they thought the...More

Great night here on a Friday evening and a good fire show. Gets very busy, get there early for a seat on the sand and eat your meal there for best view of the show

You can ring direct or go to the front desk at your resort and they should happily do it for you......we stayed at Breaka's and it was not a problem for them ....just part of the service.

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

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!
