Where not to stay

« on: December 23 2005 14:12:00 »

Stay away from Wandroka Bay resort. The management are money hungry and completely inflexible. Do not cater for surfers in the spirit of surfing. Run by an Israeli couple and the wife is an absolute nightmare. Organising trips to reefs are amission as they require certain numbers of individuals to go on the boat. Because of their bad service, not many surfers go 6there anymore, and thus often there are not the required numbers.

I stayed there for 2 nights and then headed to Yanuca Beach Resort. Run and owned by Fijians. For $110 (fijian) a night we ate as much food as we could, surfed frigates when we wanted, irrespective of the number of people and could use the resort boards for free, if required. As opposed to $40 per surf at Wandroka. In addition to this, we got Christmass gifts from the staff at Yanuca Island. Support the Fijian owned resorts!!

Merry Christmass

Just got back from the seashell resort in momi bay... $35 per boat trip to the reef... food is expensive & dodgy... rooms are average... planned events quiet often fell through and they ran low on alcohol a couple of times! But you'll meet some interesting people there... that's what kept us sane.  Chated to a few of people staying at the plantation resort in the surf... heard good reports about it.

Beware... you can only surf certain breaks (e.g. cloudbreak - saturdays) on certain days with permission from the owners... which is wrong!

You forgot to mention that the beach shown on the internet and on the post cards from Seashell is NON-EXISTING. It was wiped out and formed into a mudflat in a Hurricane a few years ago. Don't expect to do any sunbathing on the breach there. Try Rendevouz insted as they both surf Wilkes everyday (which is a DAMN good spot)
