If you surf, you will have heard of Fiji’s legendary breaks such as 'Swimming Pools', 'Restaurants' and of course, 'Cloud Break'. Not so long ago, those breaks were for the exclusive use of resorts such as Namotu and Tavarua, however that’s no longer the case. Now anyone can surf these breaks and you can surf year around in Fiji.
