Situated on the outskirts of Las Galletas, right by the sea, is this, frankly,cool venue that attracts what could be described as the "in crowd".
It's a weird name, isn't it? It appears to be the local language of Easter Island, that small speck in the southern Pacific and means "blue sea".
The link with that tiny island is reinforced by the mural, on the outside wall, of the famous statues found there.
From the outside, the place looks like an unassuming collection of buildings - some say they look derelict! However, this is deceptive. When you get inside, the interior is beautiful - and unusual. With contemporary decor with eclectic ornamentation, ethnic art work and a large aquarium, this place really has style.
There are many small, individual sections, where customers may sit and chill. Vai Moana is the ultimate chill out place!
It's not just relaxing with a drink either. Vai Moana boasts an excellent restaurant, too.
And now to the main reason of this page - the live music. As you can imagine, you're not going to hear anyone singing "Sweet Caroline" or "Simply the Best" here. Genres of music featured can include jazz, reggae, funk and soul...you get the idea?
All is performed completely live by superb collections of musicians and there can be two performances a night, usually going on until the early hours.
Full Moon Parties
An event for which Vai Moana is famous (to those in the know) is the party held every month during the full moon. The revelry is taken up a notch and everyone parties and dances the night away to the live music.
People have been known to take up position on the beach next to the venue, bringing their own food and drink - and listening to the music from there!
If you're ever in the Las Galletas area, give this place a try - you'll be pleasantly surprised.
The venue is found just off the harbour road leading out of Las Galletas. From the TF-1 motorway, exit at junction 26 and take the TF-66 road going through Guaza. Stay straight on at any roundabouts and, eventually, you'll reach Las Galletas habour. Pretty much immediately, you'll be able to spot Vai Moana to your right on a small, jutting out promontory. To help you recognise it, there's an old fishing boat just outside the entrance, with the venue's name in big letters on its side.
