Description: The Shipwreck Hut is an awesome little beach bar situated right on the sand at the Aro'a Beachside Inn, overlooking the beautiful lagoon. Perfectly positioned to enjoy the stunning sunsets while sipping one of our famous "jam-jar cocktails". We also offer cold beer, wine, spirits, soft drinks and "home cooked" bar meals. We serve our bar meals from 5:00pm until 8:00pm (sorry... not on BBQ nights). Saturday - Beach BBQ 6:00 pm with live music with Steve (your host), booking is essential. (BBQ's are number dependant.) Tuesday - Live music 6:00pm to 8:00pm with Ian & Anania aka The Rockin' Jandals. Thursday - Live music with Rio & Anania from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. The Shipwreck Hut is exactly what you would expect from a fun loving little beach bar in the South Pacific. Come and see us. :-)

Such friendly staff and amazing environment to have drinks and food by the beach! Very relaxed and can accomodate groups of over 20 without hassle! Food was incredible with being homemade! Not many vegetarian foods but the chilli was great! They have live music As well!

At Shipwreck hut you get a good selection of beer, some pub food and live music (three days a week). Plus a great view of the sunset. Very relaxing!

Beachside bar with standard cocktails. Average service. Only place we found broken glass on the beach. Many other local bars we enjoyed much more.
