Big waves, big fun. If you’re up for hanging 10 then you’re in for a treat at Lomani, among the best Fiji resorts for couples who don’t mind whetting their appetite for adventure on the mighty Pacific’s waves. Lomani is only 20 minutes by boat to some of the world’s best surf breaks. Transfers can be arranged through the resort.
But be warned: these particular surfing waves break over coral reef and can be dangerous. They’re best suited to experienced or expert surfers only and beginners should steer clear. Importantly, guests who choose to surf do so at their own risk and are required to sign a waiver before being taken to the surf.
The Lomani team suggests surfers should bring a larger board as the reef surf can be very powerful. Board hire isn’t available on the island.
The Lexmee Evening Star departs the island everyday during high tide. You can choose to visit one of 7 reef breaks, depending on which has the better surf and on your surfing skill level.
