Great place to meet friends for a couple of drinks. Casual dining, pizza's burgers, chips, local curries. All very well priced. Friday nights they have "The fire show" which is really amazing. You will need to get there early as it is very popular. I...More

The Beach Bar serves great food at reasonable Vanuatu prices. The wood fired pizzas are amazing. They also have a fireshow which was incredible and definitely worth a look.

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!
