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 spent 8 days in Efate and ended up at the Beach Bar 3 times. We saw the circus on the Sunday evening, fire show on the Friday and just had to have the amazing wood fired pizza one more time. Great staff, amazing location we will come back one day .

Went on a very rainy Friday night for the fire show, the show was fantastic (GO) Food was reasonably priced and yummy. Drinks were great. Staff were awesome, so caring that our table was in the rain, they kept coming to mop our table and check on our welfare. It's rain, no ones fault and we kept going to the... More

My partner and I had dinner and drinks here on a Friday night. Absolutely fantastic fire show! Despite being busy, there were no difficulties getting our order on time, and the pizza was delicious. Beautiful location in the day overlooking the bay and a nice stopping place after a visit to Hideaway

I had my 50th birthday recovery lunch there and the guys at the Beach Bar looked after us all. Nothing was a problem. I'll be BACK.

Attended the Beach Bar twice during our one week visit to Vanuatu. We attended the free fire show and had a yum meal and drinks and also attended for our friend's birthday lunch. The wood fired pizza and cocktails were very good and the servings were generous. The staff were warm and friendly and the owners were very welcoming.

We went on the Friday night for the Fire Show... One word: AMAZING! After the show they let us play around with the sticks. The cocktails were great, try the Mele Breeze.. Couldn't even taste the vodka, but it sure hit me a little later!! Great atmosphere and location, definitely worth checking out
