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!

Terrific atmosphere, great food, excellent entertainment (Fire Dance).
Cocktails took 40 minutes to arrive :(
Staff are running scams with bus drivers to rip off tourists getting back into Vila.
We were going to go back tonight but are put off by the hassle of getting back to Vila without getting ripped off!

We visited the Beach Bar twice with family during our 10 days in Port Vila. Friday night was crowded for the fire show, and no wonder as the troupe were fabulous so we returned for their circus show at sunset Sunday evening. The venue on the beachfront is great for kids and pizzas were good, but unfortunately the smoothies lukewarm. Definately make Friday evening a priority; and make a return visit if possible.

If you're in Port Vila this is a must!! Highly recommend this bar! Great for families and couples, groups etc. We came here on Tuesday for movie night and back again for the fire show on Friday. Great staff, location, food, drinks, view and free internet. Here at sunset is magical!
We booked ahead for the friday but not other nights. Like all of Port Vila.... cruise ship days are annoying.

They only take cash, so we decided to go over to Hideaway instead - needed to us my credit card. We also could not find a seat and the queue to the bar was HUGE. Please note the P&O ship was in town and the crowds just didn't do for us.
