If you’re a keen surfer, some of the best surf breaks in Fiji are right here in the Mamanucas – see 8 Best Surf Resorts in the Mamanuca Islands for resorts with transport and gear.

In addition, your resort will be able to organize a Kava ceremony, a welcoming ceremony where a narcotic drink called Kava is shared between visitors and a village chief.
