Tavarua should be experienced at least once by anyone who loves the ocean. Located in the Mamanuca Island chain, about 15 miles southwest of Nadi, Tavarua is a heart shaped island. – approximately 24 acres of paradise surrounded by water water everywhere – offering world class comfort, and perfect conditions for surfing, sailboarding, kite-surfing, SUP, diving, fishing, or just getting a tan and checking books off your list.
Tavarua Island faces south by southwest into the South Pacific and is perfectly positioned to take in all that swell resonating up from the Southern Ocean. Those swells begin as chaotic masses of energy generated by freezing storms of unimaginable force, but after traveling more than 2000 miles from below New Zealand, that energy arrives at Tavarua groomed and orderly, ready to unload with precision along the dozen reefs that are within range of the island.
Tavarua began as a surf camp offering other amenities to those who love the ocean: diving, snorkeling, sailboarding, kite surfing. But in this modern world, Tavarua has become a family friendly resort and is finding more and more guests who come as much for those amenities as for the surf.
The surfing is world class, but Tavarua also offers ideal conditions for flat-water and wave riding with kites and sailboards. Land based activities also abound with a tennis court, fitness center, games bure, and beach volleyball court.
Tavarua comfortably holds 36 guests (and sometimes more, with kids) in 16 private bures. They are beautifully made in a traditional island style that is still thoroughly modern in comfort. The bures are there to rest, relax, and rejuvenate, for the next surf, kite, sailboard, dive, snorkel or SUP session, out in the deep blue sea.
