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"

Great location

Right on Mele beach, the Beach Bar is in a perfect spot. A nice pizza lunch with a few Tusker beers before a dip in the sea to cool down. The pizza are not cheap mind you, NZ$23 each but worth it for the location.

Awesome fireshow on Fri evenings and excellent location. Great food. Great value. The firehow was the highlight and the skills of the performers was admirable, not to mention their bravery.

The Beach Bar is a must do when you are in Vila… Even if you are only visiting for a day from the cruise ship, make sure you jump on a bus and head out to the beach bar. Staff are happy, welcoming and eager to please. Food and drinks are yum and well-priced. Beach is fabulous with complementary use... More

Cool waterfront bar - stop off on the way to or from Hideaway Resort or simply go for a chilled afternoon/evening. Easy 300 vatu minibus ride from town

Coming up to the Beach Bar was a great way to end my trip although it made me want to stay a lot longer The food is pretty good. I had pizza and that was pretty tasty and decent price If you come on a Friday night there is a fire dance performance. Definitely something to check out.
