Was in Vanuatu at the time of the BBL07 grand final. These guys put it on the tv for us so that we were able to watch! The food there is amazing and has never been bad, very priced as well. Would definitely recommend.

My wife and I went to the beach bar on a Friday evening. The food was fantastic, the service was great and then the fire show began. It was spectacular. The performers were athletic and very skilled. It’s a must see while in Port Vila....More

Very cute place, but that's it. Food below average, burgers almost inedible, and the usual super high prices.

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!
