The setting is beautiful- right on the beach and with views to die for. Sadly the atmosphere is somewhat lacking on any night that has no special events on. The meals are merely average and the pool table should only be attempted by those who...More

We visited the beach bar on a Monday evening, which was quiet as there are no scheduled activities like the fire or circus show. There is a pool table and you can play for free. The setting is beautiful, especially at sunset and the cocktails...More

We had a great time at the fire show on Friday night. It's a 'must see' in Mele Port Vila. Food was good and the Tusker was cold.

Great food, good times, excellent little beach. I came here to jump on a jet ski tour and enjoyed a nice evening while I was here.

Great food and a great fire show food and drinks were reasonably priced too. The ONLY thing letting this place down is that they allow smoking in the undercover dining areas (the inflatable in this case).

There is a fire show (one of the best Vila can offer) on every Friday, and run for almost an hour. Staffs are friendly with a good selection of beverage and great pizza. Enjoying a great evening with friend and family on the beach side....More

Fire show is good and free. Lots of little kids and older people. All ages. Drinks are a good price and the setting is lovely. We’ve recommended to everyone we pass to try it out. We ordered the pizza and it was terrible though haha....More

Get in early if you would like a prime sport for the free Fire Show (Fridays). Very pleasantly surprised that food came out relatively quickly even with the huge crowd ordering/eating at the venue. Prices re ok and you can pay even in AUD.

We went on the Friday night. There’s a fire show on Friday night by locals and it’s really good. Food was great. Cash only though so make sure you have cash.

Great location and well worth a small 15min bus trip out of Vila. Relax on beach or go for a swim or play pool in the bar. Enjoy big lunches andor dinners and the friday night fire show. Highly recommended

Hideaway Island Resort is just a short (1-2min) ferry ride away. The main attraction is the reef.

Transport in the local shuttle buses are about 300 Vatu per person (just over AUD$3) and they run until the bar is closed. YOu can all jump in one of those together and it's owned by local people -they are like a little mini... More

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!
