The Waterfront Bar and Grill, Port Vila, Vanuatu.
Here is the focus of your yachting home base in Port Vila. You can see the yachts in the background of the photo, comfortable in the calm inner lagoon. Below is the Yachting World dinghy wharf where every visiting yacht is welcome to secure the tender and go ashore for a day's shopping or exploration.
The Waterfront is the perfect "home base" for you when you are in Port Vila. Yachties on our Marina or swing moorings have the use of Waterfront Bar and Grill showers and toilet facilities. We ask that you please leave these areas clean and tidy.
Crew from yachts that are not on the Yachting World marina or swing moorings are asked to pay a fee of vt 200 to Helen at Connect Cafe each time the shower and toilet room is used.
You can dispose of your garbage in the garbage containers behind the restaurant at no charge. This is important as many people swim in the harbour, especially at lunch time, and there is a lovely and popular beach on Iririki Island and scraps of last night's dinner - or oily bilge water - are not appreciated. There are now strict regulations against pollution of the harbour and we have made it easy for you to dispose of your rubbish and oil wastes ashore. Please use these facilities and the toilets while you are visiting Port Vila.
The Waterfront is a great place to meet friends, new or old. The fully stocked bar is a popular watering hole for visiting yachts, tourists, and local residents. It is one of the most active night spots in Port Vila. You can dance to a live band to spice up your evening.
And talk about spice, you will love their meals. You can enjoy lunch, snacks and dinner till late at the Waterfront. The Waterfront specializes in Coconut Crab, Lobster, Fresh fish,and Vanuatu Beef.
The Waterfront will organize special meals and activities from time to time. Check to see when they are hosting a superior BBQ at ridiculously low prices for cruising yachts, or one of their very popular "Ladies Lunchions" for cruising ladies. Also ask about discounts on drinks for cruising yachts. Keep abreast of the weather by checking the Waterfront Bulletin Board.
Consider the Waterfront YOUR home base when you are in Port Vila. Tie up, walk right in, and make yourself at home.
