For many surfers, it's the ultimate wave. Welcome to the small island of Tavarua, in Fiji, where you won't find many things to do. That's it, you'll have to ride Cloudbreak.
Forget museums, historic buildings, and night life. You've probably traveled a long way to get to the Fijian island of Tavarua and enjoy the splendorous natural surroundings. There's blue water everywhere. And waves for all tastes.
