The island is close to the main Fijian island, Viti Levu, and is surrounded by a coral reef. Activities on Tavarua include surfing, sport fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling and kayaking to name a few. There is also a pool, spa, workout facility and tennis court along with a restaurant facility and two bars.
There are seven main surfing breaks that are all available to guests staying at the all-inclusive island resort: Cloudbreak, Restaurants, Tavarua Rights, Swimming Pools, Namotu Left, Wilkes Pass, and Desperations which are all world class waves. Cloudbreak, being the most famous of the surrounding waves, is a powerful left a mile off the island that breaks over coral reef. Beginning surfers can enjoy fun learning waves directly in front of the island at "Kiddieland". The island hosts annual professional surfing competitions that can be viewed via webcast.
