Surfing in the Mamanucas
CLOUDBREAK FIJI : Cloubreak is Fiji’s most famous surf spot. Cloudbreak is rated one of the top ten waves in the world and is on the ‘bucket list’ of most surfers. Depending on the swell direction and power, it can be a long wall with tubing sections, or a very long and critical barrel. Cloudbreak is surfable up to 20ft but is also fun at 2ft. A S-SW swell (the more West the more critcal the wave) with a NE-SE wind make this wave great at any tide. It can be deceptively heavy and if over 6ft is recommended for experienced surfers only. Cloudbreak is located on a sheltered reef, just three miles south of Namotu Island.
RESTAURANTS FIJI : Restaurants (also known as Cloudbreak’s little brother) is also rated one of the top ten waves in the world. Not exposed to the same swell as Cloudbreak, it only breaks in a large SW ground swell but when it does, Restaurants is known as perfection in motion. Also located in the Mamanuca chain of islands, Restaurants is best for advanced to expert surfers.
