We asked our driver to take us to a nice waterfront eatery for Sunday lunch. Great location near Hideaway Island jetty. Ordered sirloin steak. Wonderful flavour and cooked properly to order. Music band playing helped set the scene. Price was reasonable and good value

Good selection of cocktails at reasonable prices and even cheaper drinks during happy hour, the woodfired pizzas were tasty and a fantastic vibe. The place fills up so best to make a reservation, especially on the weekend when the fire show is on.

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

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!
