Description: 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!

“A wonderful show”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

As we were a party of six we booked several weeks in advance. It is some distance out of town but the show was spectacular, one act in particular the most amazing fire dance sequence any of us had every seen, the food pretty good and prices very reasonable.
So good that we would do it again next time in Port Vila.

“So much fun!”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

We visited the Beach Bar 4 times during our 8 night stay in Vanuatu. We stayed at the Vanuatu Beachfront Apartments which were only a 2 minute walk down the beach.
The sunset circus was hilarious and very impressive with the acrobatics, the Friday night fire show was AMAZING!! The pizzas were what kept us coming back and also the friendly staff

“Friday Night Fire dancing”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Had heard about the friday night fire show so went to watch we arrived about 4.45 (show starts at 7 but we had been told to arrive early) to find there was only one table left al the others were reserved. ordered wood fired pizzas about 5.10 and they arrived about 6ish we had eaten by time the fire show started. The couple that shared a table with us ordered about 30 mins after us and still hadnt received there meals after the fire show finished (about 7.30 and got refunded their money) There was a hughe crowd there (guess 300-350) and atmosphere was fantastic. Went back on a Wednesday afternoon and it was a lot quieter only 10 or so people My tip would be to book and arrive early to ensure you get a seat and your meal before the fire show

“Best beach in Port Vila & something for everyone”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We visited the Beach Bar a number of time during our stay in Vanuatu and took advantage of their wonderful service and events they offer. Firstly, during the day enjoyed the sunshine and relaxing environment, swimming with the kids and playing on the water toys. We visited the neighboring markets and had a ride on the jet skis. Plus a quick trip down the road to the Zorbing for some extra excitement.
Their specialty cuisine is pizza. They offer a variety of choices and we couldn't stop eating them, they were devine! I also have to mention the the very friendly service from the staff as they made us feel so welcome and special.
Sunday they put on a circus show with an amazing trapeze act at sunset, this was so much fun for everyone, especially the children. Tuesday we had a busy day so we grabbed the deck chairs at 7pm and enjoyed the movie which was shown on a giant screen on the beach front. It was an outdoor theatre worth experiencing. The highlight of their entertainment was the "World's Best Fire Show". We have seen many fire show but this was definitely the most spectacular!!! Very well organised and professionally executed. The show is free, however they do offer donations at the end which go to the dancers. We would highly recommend adding your cash. Then take advantage of photos and meeting the dancers after.
The Beach Bar is a wonderful place to take your family and we highly recommend a trip there for when visiting Vanuatu.
