Fiji Surfing Holidays
Surfing in Fiji is highly regarded amongst the international surf community as having exceptional quality surf breaks with few crowds and a laid back atmosphere. The rave here is challenging reef breaks (not for beginners), secluded locations and the traditional Fijian hospitality. Most reef breaks around the islands are accessible only by boat so whilst this keeps the crowds down, it also puts the cost up.
The best time for surfing in Fiji is between April to December. If bringing surfboards into the country, check first with your airline carrier for baggage restrictions and excess costs. Local airlines will only carry surf boards with advance warning and will charge extra..
Several surf shops can be found in Nadi Town and Suva selling surf boards at reasonable prices and there's a good selection of accessories. Only Waidroka Bay have a regular supply of boards for rent so it's advisable to bring your own although even if you didn't you should have luck finding a local boatman willing to rent a board to you for the day.
