“Secluded beach bar a walk from the city centre”
The famous bar of Chantillys on the bay, Banyan Beach Bar is located in the middle of town and is Port Vila's only white sand bar on the beach. We offer great music, cocktail, cold beer, bean bags, day beds, bon fires, tapas & great memories.

There were 10 of us, kids through grandparents, and we all loved it. Great setting, good pizzas, good service, what more could you want? And a really nice spot for an afternoon drink at the waters edge.

Loved this place, it has the best open oven pizza. They allowed us to make it ourselves and their fire dance show was just amazing!

I really liked this place for its decor and the layout. Easy to sit and just soak up all that Port Vila has to offer. The menu has a variety of liquid refreshments (alcoholic, non alcoholic + something for the kids) as well as food...More

So sadly Port Vila doesn’t have much in the way of beaches but Banyan has taken what it’s got and made it work. A great place to enjoy a beer and a pizza.

Spent a pleasant afternoon/evening at Banyan Beach Bar. Enjoyed several beers and a good pizza. It is right on the beach as the name suggests with lots of different seating options. Staff are good at their job and it’s big enough to feel roomy. Only...More

Utterly unpretentious little beach bar. We stopped here on the way from the airport on arrival just to chill a bit after the flight and it was nice. We enjoyed a couple of drinks and suitably relaxed we proceeded to our accommodation. It's open from...More

Our big group of family and friends went the banyan beach bar and had such a great night. The pizzas are fantastic and so is the relaxed atmosphere. The blue lady cocktail was also a crowd pleaser. We will definitely be back, and we would...More
