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 beergarden. 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 Vilas biggest screen, right on the beach and Sunday Sessions with our great new show "Sunday Sunset Circus"

My wife and I came in for the Friday night fireshow. It was amazing and the pizzas served were delicious. What really impressed me though was the staff. When we had trouble finding a bus back they were more than happy to make some calls for us, at their own expense. Beach bar is a must visit if you are... More

Port Vila is back on it's feet after Cyclone Pam. There are lots of Hotels open and things are just about back to normal and one of the best things to do in Port Vila is hop on a bus (150vt) and head out to the Beach Bar on Mele Bay. Have a swim, hire a jet ski, have a... More

The Beach Bar is a great place to get out of town. It is easy enough to get to while being removed enough to be secluded. The Beach (Mele Beach) is a great place to swim at (no coral or surf), while the bar provides inflatable slides and games for kids to play on. The food and drinks are of... More

Food was good and well priced, location's fantastic, right next to the ferry to Hideaway. But it seems a very popular place for the upscale Aussies to come to, which took a bit of the charm away for us.

This is an outstanding venue to have a couple of quite drinks. Roxi and Malcolm are fantastic hosts and very friendly. The local employees are a very friendly lot and are very proficient at their job. Whilst there you must try Roxi's 'Potato Bake' they are to die for. There is a great view from anywhere in the bar.

This is a very friendly bar in a beautiful setting on the beach looking out to Hideaway island. A good range of wine, beer and spirits and a very good all day menu. The staff are warm, welcoming and friendly. There are floating slides out on the water for the kids to play on and this is an excellent place... More

Just a short stroll from home which is great for a casual meal and cold drink. A quick recovery from TC Pam and they're back in business which is great. Staff are friendly and just a quick glance over to the bar ensures your next drink is on the way....yep they know what I like and nothing is too much... More
