Went for pizza which was great. Really nice view, and would be good to return during the day or late afternoon, watch the sunset and have pizza. Unfortunately we missed the fire show, but everyone told us it was great. Only trouble is the terrible road to get there, and when we finished dinner there were no buses, and someone... More

The one hour plus fire show was amazing and starts after sunset. Get there early because on a good night there will be 100-300 people waiting to see this spectacular show. You can order wood oven pizzas and other cafe style food. Orders may take a while to come through but it will be worth the wait. Its a great... More

The fireworks show on a Friday night is amazing!!!!!! It is a MUST when visiting Vanuatu! We got there early to get a good seat, which was such a wise decision as it did become quite busy. We ordered pizzas and cocktails from the bar which were all delicious and then we're in awe of the show.

The location has a great view and feel and the food is good there. We were here in the evening but it must be even more fun in daytime. The last mile road to here was a mess

Do not miss the fire show, but make sure you book a good table. The food is good, kids meals well priced, good choice and great views over to hideaway island. Local market selling handicrafts on the beach. Well worth a trip out to .

This very popular beach bar is located so that diners can watch the sun set and eat good food. Pizzas are popular. We went to also watch thee Fire Show which was excellent. It was somewhat puzzling that our group was divided into one large table and one small table for 6. Just did not make sense and caused separation... More

We missed all the movie nights and fire shows and dancing that the beach bar offers on different nights but we stopped in often for a light lunch or an afternoon coffee and always found good food, good service and nice people.

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 beer garden. 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 Vila's biggest screen, right on the beach and our Sunday Sessions starting with live music from 1pm followed by our great new show "Sunday Kustam Karnival" where Bank's Snake Dancers meet our talented Circus Performers". Something for everyone at The Beach Bar!
