Location and contact

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

Not too far out of Port Vila and well worth the trip. Overlooking Hideaway Island and views across the bay to the mainland. Casual kick back location and ambience. You are seated not more than 30 meters to the water. I had the Pescatore Pizza....More

Did a day trip to the Beach Bar having visited on a past trip in October 2018. Relaxing, good food, wide range of drinks, warm water and volcanic? sandy beach. Nice place next to the Hideaway island pier.

What better way than to enjoy a ice cold beer on a clean beach. Staff friendly and service good. Prices are as you would expect and mid range.
