Rumours of surf breaks on the southern side of Qamea Island were confirmed in 2006, when one of Maqai’s owners/directors had a chance to survey the outer islands of Laucala in a helicopter – the quality of the breaks were confirmed with a flyover (including what is arguably the best right-hander in Fiji), and the rest is history!
An amazing surfing experience is offered directly out front of Maqai Beach (pronounced as “Munguy”). Whether you’re a weekend surfer, beginner or advanced level, Maqai has waves for you in Fiji!
The advantage of Maqai Resorts location is that you can see the main breaks anywhere from the resort; kick back in the Sandbar or on the deck of your bure and choose the best time of the day to hit the waves – when the weather is changeable, you can score the best session of the day. Staying at Maqai Resort you can’t stay any closer to the breaks, they are directly 1500m offshore – no long boat rides to cut into your surf time – a 10 minute boat ride will have you surfing Maqai, Kavas or Bula Bowls.

“The 3 main breaks in front of Maqai are Kavas, Maqai and Bula Bowls, while there are also 3 more surf breaks in the area that are within 10-20 minutes of the resort; Purple Wall, Black Rock and Mulomulo.”
Surfing is possible year round in Fiji, with two distinct surf seasons – at Maqai we are lucky enough to be able to surf through both seasons, which is not the case at many surfing areas in Fiji. The southern hemisphere summer provides calm and glassy conditions with more northerly quarter winds and consistent long-period swells, while the winter season sees the big Southern Ocean-generated swells grinding through and southeasterly winds are more common
The waves at Maqai Beach Eco Resort are uncrowded and some .of the best in Fiji Learn more about the spots you’ll be surfing by clicking here.
Complimentary activities at Maqai include snorkeling on the reef outside the resort, kayaking, and volleyball. For those less active you may like to go on a jungle walk or play table tennis and chess. In the evening we have kava nights, singing and dancing.
Every afternoon volleyball takes place around 4pm. Join the locals on the court for fun times and lots of laughter. Recommended is the guided jungle walk which operates daily and is a hike above the resort, trekking through tropical rainforest and seeing amazing 360 degree vistas. Your guide will teach you all about the different plants and their medicinal properties.
