Cloudbreak. Wilkes. Namotu. Tavarua. Maybe the quintessential breaks and islands in all the Pacific. The best surfers from around the world test their skills on these leeward isles in Fiji. It's a place that memories are made. Dreams fulfilled...or in some cases shattered. Clean Antarctic winter swells hit these islands unhindered in their long migration across the Pacific. If you've seen Castaway, it was filmed in the Mamanucas, a group of islands and reefs off the SE coast of Fiji's main island, Viti Levu and just north of the Yasawas. We spent a whole season here back in 2004 when Jody and I were running Saoirse. We made a film with Raphael Salles and F.One back in the C Kite days, some of that footage was used for our original promo for the Best Odyssey. Have a look to get an idea for the area:

Enchanting isles to be sure. They are just a very short sail (14 miles) from Nadi, the international airport so you can jump right into the fun. This is not as remote or exotic maybe as some of our itineraries, but it has all the ingredients for serious fun. Beach bar-b-ques with fellow cruisers, incredible lagoon kiting, kava ceremonies, and if you're up for it- seriously good waves.
Getting there: There are a number of ways to get to Fiji. Fiji Airways, Air New Zealand, or United Airlines. International flights arrive into Nadi, on the west coast.
