A great atmosphere at the Waterfront. We arrived around lunch and it was packed. Lots of people swimming with some floaties out in the water for the kids. Good food and drinks were pretty good, atmosphere fantastic.

Went on a Friday night to watch the fire show as it was recommended by a couple of locals. It was definitely an experience. For those of us that had dined in for dinner, it was hard to see the stage without standing for a while, but those who were just having a drink were able to comfortably sit at... More

We visited here as this is the new venue for hiring jet skis in Vanuatu and stayed for lunch. Food was good and it was easy to grab a bus back to town. Would have liked to go back but a little bit far from town so a bit pricey in buses or taxis compare to going into town.

We had been in Vanuatu for just over a week and had heard from a lot of people that the Beach Bar is the place to go in Port Vila on a Friday night. Located at the jetty to Hideaway Island, it normally costs 500 vatu pp to get there by bus. If you are traveling in peak season it... More

We stopped for lunch on way to hideaway island. They had a band playing, outdoor wood pizza oven and great cocktails. What's not to like?

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!
