Some time ago, one of my friends convinced me to go and photograph his surf trip to Fiji. It was one of the best travel decisions I’ve ever made. I invited a girlfriend to come along and we still talk about it to this day. It was heaven on earth and one of the greatest trips of my life.
A nine hour direct flight from Los Angeles, and home to some of the best surf breaks in the world, Tavarua is a tiny little heart shaped island in the South Pacific. I spent an amazing nine days enjoying the scenery, the sun, the sea, hanging out with friends, reading, taking photos, and trying to learn a little about surfing.
It was an experience I will never forget. The staff, the accommodations, the food were more than we ever expected. Since our trip, I hear there have been many upgrades that I’m sure have only elevated the experience. So if you ever get the chance to spend time in Fiji, you are in to surfing and you want a great experience, I highly recommend Tavarua. On your way out hire the helicopter service for the best exit to a vacation you will ever have.
