You can park your car at the public access at the entrance of the Sofitel Hotel. You can either paddle across the lagoon and walk down the reef (this would be a long walk). Wear sandals or booties. The other option is to walk down the resorts beach and then paddle over to the Motu. You'll still need you sandals or booties to walk around the island. There is tons of broken coral on the beach. This is a real easy paddle across a flat calm lagoon. Once you get to the Motu the walk around the island is about 300-400 yards. Once you get to the inlet side, the break is only about 35 yards out. It's amazing. You can jump into the inlet and paddle out without even getting your hair wet (total paddle time 3-5 minutes). You'll be able to see the waves lining up, and since I didn't have anyone else out as a reference point, I just kept moving over until I was in the zone and took off. Almost every wave is makeable, and begins to bowl up and barrel as it raps into the inlet and then it spits you out into the channel. I almost went over the falls once, but I'm glad I didn't. The reef is pretty sharp and I recommend you take some booties if your feet aren't tough.
Beware of the pigs that live on the little Motu. The locals keep them there. I don't know if they are friendly but I stayed away from them. Show some respect for the locals. I surfed this break during the week days with no one in the water but myself. There were only 6 or 7 guys in the water on the weekend and that's only because the waves at Fare, etc. had too much wind on them.
I helped pick up trash on the little Motu because it is so beautiful, and also help one of the local surfers get his boat un-anchored by swimming out in the inlet to where he was and held the anchor while he pulled in the line. He cut a Papaya in half and gave it too me, which I ate for lunch on the beach. Everyone was either very nice or didn't make a comment. I suggest you do the same.
The spot was great! A lot of fun! I'll be adding some pictures to the site soon. The entire 8 days I was there the wave never got under 1 1/2 meters. The biggest day was 2 1/2 meters.
