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 husband and I enjoyed a relaxing afternoon eating lunch and enjoying the atmosphere here. If you're lucky there is a sofa under a ceiling fan at the back of the resturant where you can recline and watch the world go by. The food is average but the beach bar atmosphere makes up for that. Plus they seem to have... More

This was an excellent recommendation by a local! Beach front, laid back and energetic atmosphere. This was my first meal in Vanuatu and the standard was set very high! The wood fired pizza was delicious - one of the best I've ever had! Great selection on the cocktails and drinks menu. Nambawan was my favorite! I stayed on for the... More

In our month in Vila we spent ~10 different nights at Beach Bar. Great pizza, cheap beer and love the variety of activities. Movie nights were great and the fire show is very very cool.

Spent heaps of time here as we stayed at the beachfront apartments just 100m down the beach. This place has great wood fired pizzas, cold beer & the pool table that sure gets a workout! Great music & relaxed vibe!

book a table for the fire show night, eat early then move to the chairs at the beachfront. It gets really crowded for the fireshow, but doesn't lose its great friendly vibe, food service excellent. Cocktails divine! It only takes cash...but the night we were there announced anyone who didn't have cash could jump on the truck to the ATM!

Loved the beach bar. Our family of 6 enjoyed the tranquil setting, the coconut drinks - Yummo and they were cheap. Relaxing and taking time out from the water, the sun and chilling in the shade is the best, and the Ni Va bar staff were most excellent in their service and smiles. Kids went jetski-ing and played on the... More
