The South Pacific’s Best Sunset Bars

Picture yourself laying on a sun lounger, cocktail in hand as the sun lazily drifts down towards the horizon, leaving a rainbow of colours in its wake. There are palm trees swaying in the gentle air and the scent of fresh seafood mixed with tropical flowers fills your nostrils as you bliss-out, forgetting all of your troubles.

If this sounds like your perfect holiday experience then read on as we’ve listed some of the best sunset bars in the South Pacific.


Hula Bar in Rarotonga:

Rarotonga’s Hula Bar in the Cook Islands is the perfect location to enjoy an ice-cold beer after a long day of swimming, diving, fishing, snorkelling, hiking or cruising. Known for their cheap drinks and popular amongst the locals as well as tourists, Hula Bar is ideal for anyone wanting a few casual drinks paired with a fantastic view.


Castaway on Norfolk Island:

Castaway’s impressive timber deck was purpose-built for watching the sun go down. With a simple menu full of seasonal local produce, paired with an impressive wine list, Norfolk Island’s Castaway Bar boasts stunning views of Mt Pitt that are only amplified with a sunset backdrop. Castaway is popular amongst solo travellers, couples and groups alike and is also available for venue hire for weddings, parties and corporate events.


Waitui Beach Club at Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa:

Waitui Beach Club at Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa offers the ultimate luxury sunset experience. An adults-only venue with its own pool, champagne bar and sun loungers, this bar encompasses everything you’ve been daydreaming about and more. If you stick around after the sun goes down you’ll also enjoy live music and amazing share plates.


Port Olry Beach Bar in Vanuatu:

Vanuatu’s Port Olry Beach Bar is not much to look at from the outside – a small little thatched hut, it barely even looks like a venue at all! But looks can be deceiving, and once the sun starts to set you wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. Enjoy a cold beverage while sitting on the handmade furniture carved from logs and rocks while marvelling at the peacefulness as the sun disappears until tomorrow.


Lava Lounge in Port Vila:

Often referred to as ‘Vanuatu’s living room’, the Lava Lounge in Port Villa is the ideal meeting place for a casual drink before a big night out. With great music, tasty cocktails and comfortable seating, you can watch the reflection of the sunset on the water as it escapes beyond the horizon. After dark Lava Lounge transforms into a popular night club with themed party nights a regular occurrence.


Le Roof Overwater Bar in Noumea:  

Fine dining. Over-water experience. Amazing views. Noumea’s Le Roof bar and restaurant has everything you want in a sunset bar. Standing on stilts above beautifully clear water and boasting a large fish-viewing area in the middle of the building, Le Roof is an unmissable experience for anyone visiting New Caledonia.
