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!

“Awesome way to end your holiday!!”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

We ventured out to the beach bar in Mele on our final night in Port Vila, and it was definitely worth the trip!! Just note - buses will charge you 500VT per person because it is a little further out of town, but the extra fare is very worth it, trust me. Be sure to get there before 7pm on a Friday night to watch the spectacular fire dancers!! We got there just in time for the start of the show but we still found a spot with a good view so don't stress too much if you are running late. Food is super cheap and great value. Both my boyfriend and I had the steak with mushroom sauce - we thought this meal was better than the meal we had at Elan, and half the price!!! The couple we were dining with ordered veal and a burger and they were very happy with their meals also. Drinks are cheap - 950VT for a cocktail as opposed to 1250VT which is the standard price of a cocktail at other restaurants. It was truly the perfect way to end a perfect holiday. Could not recommend more.

“Great fire show and good pizza”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

The Friday night fire show is a must see. Book a table early as it is very popular. The wood fired pizza is simple and delicious, but you do get a bit smoked out by the pizza oven if the wind is blowing the wrong way. Beautiful out look over the bay and onto hide away island

“Amazing fire show!!!”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

We highly recommend to spent some time on this place specially on Friday fire show, it's beautiful and we didn't expect it's such amazing night.

We also enjoy the sunset here, many children playing around, it's good place for family!

We did order some food and drink before the fire show, the food is just OK..

Just a reminder, it's better to have the food early so you can go front and wait for the show :)

“Tasty Meals, Good Prices and good atmosphere”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

If you're in Vila you have to check out the Friday fire shows, expect it to be pretty busy though so get in early and grab a seat. Meals have always been good but keep in mind it does get very busy so sometimes the wait time can be long, nothing unreasonable though!
