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 have been here twice now on 2 separate cruises. Loved this bar. Took the kids swimming, jet skiing and on the free water toys. The kids loved the lizards. Facilities are nice and clean. Food was great and service and local knowledge was even better! Will be definitely spending more time there in Ocotber for our holiday

The Beach bar takes on the beachcomber theme and does it pretty well, being situated right on the waterfront of melee beach - a great relaxed atmosphere where you can enjoy a drink, pizza, hamburger or similar. It is about 20 minutes out from vila so will need a vehicle as not common to get there by bus ( although... More

Reasonable priced food. The fire dance show is free and worth seeing. Its a good stop off point for food and if you need internet to plan your next port of call. Take free boat across to Hideaway Island, the snorkeling there is magnificent.

The Fire Show at the Beach Bar is an absolute highlight. We got there late and just before the show with barely standing room available. Keep an open mind the show is so worth it and we were glad we pressed on and stuck with the crowded situation, dig deep when the hat gets passed around to support these fantastic... More

This is the place to be on a Friday night for the fire show. Very busy so you need to order food by about 5.30pm and book a table in advance. Food not bad, they have wood fired pizzas and nice cocktails too. A nice place to spend the evening.
