Fiji Surfing Holidays – Resorts near Fiji surf breaks

26 Jun

Surfing in Fiji is great all year round. The air temperature is warm-hot and the water doesn’t get  much colder than a balmy 23 degrees.

The Fiji winter (it is the topics so it’s not really ever cold) from April – October produces the biggest waves with conditions ranging from 8-10 foot. During the summer months from November – March, the swells are shorter and winds lighter.  This time of year is probably best for inexperienced surfers when conditions are calmer.

Did you know that in 2101 the Fiji Government ‘deregulated’ the waves, allowing anyone to surf anywhere in Fiji. Prior to this some surf breaks were for the exclusive use of certain resorts only.

Cloudbreak Fiji

Located in the Mamanuca chain of islands is Cloudbreak – possibly Fiji’s most famous surf spot. Cloudbreak is rated one of the top ten waves in the world and is on the ‘bucket list’ of most surfers. Depending on the swell direction and power, it can be a long wall with tubing sections, or a very long and critical barrel. Cloudbreak is surfable up to 20ft but is also fun at 2ft. A S-SW swell (the more West the more critcal the wave) with a NE-SE wind make this wave great at any tide. It can be deceptively heavy and if over 6ft is recommended for experienced surfers only. Cloudbreak is located on a sheltered reef, just three miles south of Namotu Island.

Restaurants Fiji

Restaurants (also known as Cloudbreak’s little brother) is also rated one of the top ten waves in the world. Not exposed to the same swell as Cloudbreak, it only breaks in a large SW ground swell but when it does, Restaurants is known as perfection in motion. Also located in the Mamanucas, Restaurants is best for advanced to expert surfers.

Other popular breaks in the Mamanuca chain include Namotu Lefts, Swimming Pools, Wilkes Passage and Lighthouse.

Frigate Passage Fiji

Frigate Passage, or Frigates as it’s affectionately called, fringes a pass on the barrier reef surrounding Beqa Island. It is one of the most consistent surf spots not only in Fiji, but the entire South Pacific. This powerful left-hander breaks over a relatively smooth coral reef.  One of the world’s premier surf breaks, Frigates is conveniently located a 20 minute boat ride from Pacific Harbour on Fiji’s main island of Viti Levu.

Fiji’s Outer Reefs

Surfing the outer reefs in Fiji under the right conditions is world class and not for the faint hearted! It can be wild and rugged and is not advisable for the complete novice. With exceptional breaks you can surf the outer reef tides from left to right, while surrounded by idyllic sights of neighbouring islands. Due to the secluded location, you’ll never have to wait in line to catch a wave.  There are various locations based upon experience levels.

Soso Passage : For beginners and intermediate level surfers. Resorts near Soso Passage : Kokomo Private Island

Vesi Passage : The main break is predominantly left, holiday quality waves of up to 12 feet and is all power from top to bottom. It can be surfed at the upper end of an incoming tide and is best on a northerly wind and a southerly-east swell (for expert surfers). Resorts near Vesi Passage : Kokomo Private Island

Naiqoro Passage : Depending on its power and size is a thick, steep right hander. Ideal for intermediate surfers. Resorts near Naiqoro Passage : Kokomo Private Island
