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 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"

We came here on a Friday night for dinner and to watch the fire show. Great atmosphere and great family fun. We rang up the day before and booked a table as it can be very popular. We had to wait awhile for our pizza's to be brought out. Good idea to order food early and then sit back with... More

We thoroughly enjoy coming out on a Sunday, going for a swim or hiring a paddle board then having a drink or lunch. I try to avoid cruise ship days as the peaceful atmosphere isn't the same. Take cash as i don't think there was EFTPOS paying methods, or they were down when we were there.

Wow Sandra, did you have a bad day or something? I'm not sure if we are supposed to take this review seriously. We have employed two new full time managers and I know they have not had a day off in nearly 2 months. We now have far more managerial supervision during opening hours than ever before. Obviously there are... More

We ventured out to the beach bar in Mele on our final night in Port Vila, and it was definitely worth the trip!! Just note - buses will charge you 500VT per person because it is a little further out of town, but the extra fare is very worth it, trust me. Be sure to get there before 7pm on... More

The Friday night fire show is a must see. Book a table early as it is very popular. The wood fired pizza is simple and delicious, but you do get a bit smoked out by the pizza oven if the wind is blowing the wrong way. Beautiful out look over the bay and onto hide away island
