The atmosphere was a typical beach bar with the normal type of drinks and food. I had a pizza which was not bad. The main point of coming here on a Friday night is to see the Fire show. It was simply amazing and highly entertaining. I would recommend getting there early as it is popular and you cannot stand... More

Got a transfer from our resort on Friday night to the Beach Bar out near Hideaway Island. We weer told that the Fire Show was a must see and it was brilliant entertainment - a mix of fire, thrilling acrobatics and a bit of humour too all from a local youth organisation. The food was great (wood-fired pizzas delicious) and... More

We went here a few times during our stay in Vanuatu. The food was excellent, good value for money. Nice cocktail menu as well with a good range. Would highly recommend booking a table for the Friday night fire show in advance, great evening!

Vanuatu was one of our ports of call on our cruise. We booked Peter Ora for the day to see the sights and experience Vanuatu. He told us to the Beach Bar for lunch. A beautiful setting. Some of the options for the pizzas where very unusual button sounded good. Food was of a good standard but was disappointed not... More

Although we ate pizzas! The cocktails on the beach were great. Staff were extremely friendly, food/drinks well priced and the fire show on Friday night was definitely a highlight of our holiday. We were a party of 12 including 6 children and we all enjoyed the Beach Bar so returned on our final night in Vanuatu. Just remember to take... More

Reminded me of Bali with tables and chairs on the beach. Quite nice food - burgers, pizza, fries etc. Not cheap but then nothing in Vanuatu is.

Thank ChellaBella05

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"
