Surfing Maqai Reef Pass
There are a range of waves to choose from near the resort, with a variety of take-offs for intermediate to advanced surfers, and overall very suited to your average level weekend surfer looking for some fun surf on holiday. Fijian surfers claim the wave in front of the resort is the best right-hander in Fiji peeling for 300m.
The most consistent waves are from October to May when the offshore winds are from the north. However, good waves can still be had during the remainder of the year similar to somewhere like Wilkes Pass at this time of year. There is also a learner wave out front of the resort for those who want to give surfing a go.
