With world-class reef breaks, breathtaking scenery and some of the clearest water in the South Pacific, Fiji is a wonderland for surfers and ocean lovers alike. The team at World Surfaris has hand-picked a range of Fijian destinations that specifically cater to surfers and their families, to ensure you make the most of everything Fiji has to offer.
In Fiji, most of the surf breaks are nestled in remote and pristine locations, accessible only by boat. This is where the invaluable expertise and guidance of our World Surfaris surf guides comes into play, to help surfers unlock the hidden treasures of Fiji’s waves, and enjoy a Fiji surf trip of a lifetime.
The enchanting Mamanuca Islands are renowned for having world-class surf breaks. Nestled in the heart of the Pacific, this destination is a swell magnet, making it a haven for surfers. The best surf conditions are from March to October when the southeasterly trade winds are common and low-pressure systems generate large swells at Cloudbreak, Restaurants, Namotu and Wilks Passage.
Coast and Frigates, Fiji
Nestled along the picture-perfect coastline of Fiji, this breathtaking region is a treasure trove of natural beauty and wonders. With pristine coral reefs, white sandy beaches and epic surf breaks, prepare for an incredible journey to one of the most beautiful locations in the world.
Frigates Passage is a surfer’s playground, only for experienced surfers looking for a real challenge. This renowned spot is ideal for shortboards, while bigger days call for a larger gun to tackle the solid surf conditions.
Only a short boat ride from Matanivusi Surf Resort are three right-hand reef breaks that in the right conditions offer an experience of a lifetime, as well as the famous Frigates Pass which is located 20 km offshore.
The Coral Coast and Frigates region is a surfer’s playground that offers year-round waves, characterised by two distinct surf seasons. The first season spans from April to October, when low-pressure systems in the Southern Hemisphere generate consistent ground swells, ranging from 8 to 10 ft.
In the winter, which falls between June and August, Frigates is hit with strong offshore southeasterly trade winds, averaging 20 to 25 knots. These favourable winds can persist for up to a week at a time, creating great surfing conditions.
On the other hand, the cyclone season in Fiji occurs from December to April and brings shorter swells and tropical conditions, glassy with light winds throughout the day. This time of the year can be extremely hot, accompanied by afternoon showers.
Whether you prefer the consistent ground swells of the winter season or the tropical charm of the cyclone season, the Coral Coast and Frigates region promises a diverse and exciting surf experience all year round.
