Would have loved to have spent longer here- we dropped in for drinks and snacks. There was a live band playing- really good atmosphere. Our drinks and food were great.

Average food but a very pleasant place to be, on the beach right by the water. Lots of umbrellas, and really friendly staff. We were there several times and there was often live music by a local band. Laid back and fun.

You can ring direct or go to the front desk at your resort and they should happily do it for you......we stayed at Breaka's and it was not a problem for them ....just part of the service.

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!
