Tavarua Island Resort
Tavarua Island, Fiji
Heart Shaped Island Surrounded by Surf Nirvana

Tavarua is the world’s longest lived and most famous surf resort for very good reasons. Built from the outset to support local communities, respect Fijian culture, protect the environment, and provide elite surf guiding services and safety protocols, Tavarua delivers sustainability along with a surf travel experience that is unique in the world. Since its opening in the early 1980’s, Tavarua has had virtually zero staff turnover, the staff love their jobs and you are invited into their family for a very special experience. The world’s best surfers and Hollywood celebrities have been bringing their families here for years to experience Tavarua’s rustic island charm.

Home to the WSL Championship Tour in June, with the closest access in Fiji to two of the world’s best left handers, an additional three right handers nearby, and perhaps the best learning waves in the south pacific right out front, Tavarua is an iconic destination resort that doesn’t disappoint. With huge rainwater harvesting capacity, a state of the art low-tech wastewater treatment facility, meaningful cultural interpretation, a commitment to ensure all solid waste is avoided, reused, recycled, and the remainder safely disposed of at a properly managed landfill means that you can experience all this knowing that you are having a net positive impact on the local environment and the people who live there.

Tavarua is pending recertification in March 2018.
