|Find the best surf spots||
Warm water all year - very friendly locals - unless you happen to be Prime Minister or on an opposing Rugby Team.... great place to surf - or to just hang out and enjoy the tropical paradise!
Plus: world class surf spots, tubular reefs, powerful and frequent swells
Minus: few rights, bad winds during winter, boat access to the surf spots.
There is only one area of beachbreak (Sigatoka), and it can be quite challenging. For the most part, boats are needed to access most every other break. In some cases, resorts negotiate usage rights that can keep transient traffic from accessing their waves. Out of the way places without much tourist traffic may be more accessible to the home-stay traveler. Local knowledge will help you along. For an inexpensive resort with access to lefts, I would strongly consider a stay at Batiluva on Yanuca island. It is a beautiful place with daily rides to Frigates.

Coral Coast Crawling - Howzit, Im heading to Fiji tomorrow and Im going to be based on the coral coast at Hideaways. I have surfed out around Tavarua and Namoutu previously but haven't had a lot of experience around the coral coast. It looks like the swell is going to be in the triple overhead range at hideaways so will be unsurfable for the next week Im guessing. Has anyone surfed this coast at this size. Any advise on where to hit. I heard inside Natadola can be sick when it gets some decent size in there?...Also would Pipe and serua be smaller than Hideaway?....Cheers

Matanaivusi Resort - Coral Coast - A knock on this place is that the owner/operator (Brian) frequently joins guests for a surf and takes his own wave count seriously. He can get very defensive as well. Not my idea of hospitality.

waidroka - I dont know what you talking about. I just got back from traveling around fiji and waidroka was the best resort we stayed at. The staff were very friendly the owner did everything possible to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The food was so lovely that we found out how to make our fav meals we enjoyed there. We later went to plantation island and mucket cove. The people were no were near as friendly and we spent alot more money on eating out. I recommend waidroka bay resort to anyone looking for a home away from home expierience. We went out surfing every day and the hotel puts food on the boat so you can stay out as long as you like. Even when the waves were fab the hotel organised an island trip and picnic to explore the rainforrest and snorkle for the day. My girlfriend dived and said that the diving was the most perfessional and world class she has experienced.
