  • A video call with the trip leader – Here we’ll discuss how to book your flights, insurance and where you will be met on arrival. We’ll cover your objectives, pre-trip planning, dietary requirements, physical preparation, kit list, trip expectations and you’ll have the chance to ask any burning questions about the holiday or bodyboarding in general.
  • Upon completion of the call, you will receive the trip leaders direct contact number so that you have personal, immediate line of communication until arrival in the destination.
  • Bespoke Bodyboard-Holiday preparation fitness video.
  • Bespoke Bodyboard-Holiday preparation Yoga video geared toward bodyboarding flexibility and cramp reduction.
  • If you have footage of your riding, we can offer a pre-trip analysis.


Once you arrive in Nadi, Fiji, you will gather your bags and exit customs.  There will be a driver there with a TAVARUA sign, and you will likely be flying in with other folks who are part of the group.  The driver will direct you where to bring your bags, and to your transport.  You will then travel about 45 minutes by shuttle bus to the coastline where you will await the Tavarua boats to take you on a short 20-minute panga ride out to your home for the next week.  Make sure your electronics are protected (we recommend a sealed plastic bag) and you are wearing sandals or barefoot (your feet might get wet in transit if it’s windy/choppy, and you may have to step off the boat in shallow water upon arrival).  Have your cameras ready for your arrival…trust us! 


We’re taking over the private island of Tavarua, staying in Fijian Beach Bures (bungalows) at the “gold standard” of surf resorts, for one week.

Paradise awaits!

  • Own queen-sized bed in a shared beach side bungalow (double-occupancy, but can fit up to a family of four)
  • Air conditioning
  • Daily maid service
  • Daily cleaning
  • Quality towels and bed linen
  • Swimming pool, hot tub & gym
  • Tennis court, basketball court and skate ramp
  • Use of water sports equipment and facilities: snorkelling gear, fishing, SUPs, soft top surfboards, and kayaks
  • Pool table, ping pong and table games


The trip includes 3 all-you-can-eat meals/day plus a pre-dawn continental breakfast and Happy Hour appetizers. – You won’t go hungry!

Early morning cereal, yogurt, toast, coffee, and tea for the early risers. Three full buffet meals featuring multiple options for all types of diets, are prepared by the local kitchen staff. The kitchen always tries to provide fresh fish from the island’s surrounding waters, a true ocean-to-table experience.


  • Access to all of the island’s eight nearby surf spots including world-renowned “Restaurant’s” and “Cloudbreak”
  • All boat rides to the surf and fishing
  • Every day throughout the week our expert trip leaders will draw upon their collective 40+ years of experience to put you in the best waves for your ability.
  • Each day you can surf as much or as little as you like. Boats head out to the reefs each day and you can choose which one to jump on! We work around the tides and daily conditions to guarantee the best waves for our guests.


This is an out and out holiday to one of the world’s most sought-after locations. Think “bucket list”, paradise, trip of a lifetime. There is no coaching, it’s all about having fun in the huge variety of waves that are available. In between sessions you can chill in your own slice of heaven.


We spend a lot of time bodyboarding, but when it is finished for the day, people’s time is then their own. With so many sports and activities to do, you won’t get bored. Or if you’d prefer to chill, you can explore the island, read a book in a hammock or laze next to the pool.  There’s even world-class snorkelling just meters off the beach of this 25-acre heart-shaped paradise.


The evenings are for kicking back, watching a stunning sunset at the beach, playing pool or table tennis, or enjoying a cocktail at the Kulu bar.  On the Thursday evening of your week, get ready for a very special “Fiji Night” presentation by the staff including the traditional “Kava Ceremony”!

We can’t guarantee your place until we receive payment (in full or a deposit). Payment will be taken over the telephone or by us sending you an online invoice.

You’ll then be sent a trip confirmation email and an invite to a Zoom meeting. 

We prefer to chat to our guests after they have jumped aboard, this gives us the chance to answer any burning questions that you may have and to explain all the details about the trip, everything from flights, insurance and airport meeting arrangements to kit advise and what to pack etc. This helps to tailor the trip exactly to your needs.

Yes definitely! We pride ourselves on being super welcoming and friendly. Most of our guests arrive solo and leave with a host of new bodyboarding buddies.

Due to this trip being in high demand and having limited spaces, we can only hold your space for up to 24 hours without payment.

You are welcome to attend for a shorter period to suit your personal schedule, however the package price will remain the same and there will be an additional cost if you don’t travel on the Saturday-to-Saturday schedule due to a separate airport and boat pick up being required.

There is a ‘Couples Discount’, which can be two adults who are 18 years or older. There are no other discounts available.

We have a great mix of all ages from young whipper-snappers to silver surfers.

The gender ratio at the moment is around 60% men to 40% women. However, this is constantly changing and Bodyboard Holidays is inclusive to all.


On Tavarua, internet costs approx. $140 USD for one device for the week and an additional fee for each additional device.

We choose the time of year and location for our holidays based on local knowledge and historical swell data. In the event of flat waves or stormy conditions, we will offer alternative activities and day trips to help you get the most out of your holiday.

Please take a look at our Area section for more information. We may also adjust the format of the week, for example, choosing to run more bodyboard sessions on the days that the waves are at their best.

Please visit our Terms & Conditions for more information.

The area that we visit is blessed with constant surf, you can expect great conditions most days of the trip. To give you a clearer idea, the videos on this webpage were all filmed during previous bodyboard holiday trips.

Please refer to the Waves section for more details.

We do not offer a discount for bringing your own equipment.  There is no kit available on the island so it is essential that you bring everything that you need.

Remember to check the baggage size and weight allowance with your airline, as well as reading their guidance for carrying bodyboards. Baggage handlers can be unforgiving, so a tough bag and intelligent packing are a must.

Firstly, pack your board(s) in a protective, padded board bag, and write FRAGILE and TOP LOAD ONLY on it with a permanent marker. Make sure you wrap your towel and clothes around your board inside the bag for added protection. Place your shampoo and other wet toiletries in a separate sealed bag in case of leakage. We also recommend locking the zips on your bag with a padlock.

Please check international travel requirements for your nationality. Please contact your travel agent or airline if you are unsure or have any further questions.

It’s a good idea to carry photocopies of your important documents and guide books and pack them separately. We also suggest scanning copies and emailing them to yourself for extra reassurance.

If you are under 18, we will need to chat to you on the phone and you will need to be accompanied on the trip by a parent or guardian throughout the holiday. If you are 60 or over we’d love to chat with you about the trip before you book. Please contact us via our online chat.

At time of booking we will share the trip leaders contact number with you.

As with any holiday, full travel insurance is a requirement for all guests booking a trip with the company. 

Please also ensure that your policy covers you for ‘disruption to travel’ and ‘cover for cancellations’ as standard.

For further help please read our helpful blog post about travel insurance.

You may need to add additional cover for surfing or bodyboarding, it is essential that your insurance policy covers you for all activities during your stay. Failure to take out travel insurance breaks the contract between Bodyboard Holidays and the client.

If you are joining one of our trips and you are native to the country of its location (i.e you live in Lisbon and are joining our Portugal trip) you do not need to take out medical travel insurance. This is as long as you have your own personal health-care plan or are covered by your country’s National Health Service. Although, we kindly request that you still take out trip disruption and cancellation insurance to cover all possible eventualities.

Health and safety medical advice for UK travellers can be found online at https://www.gov.uk/world

Otherwise, contact your GP or the Department of Health (DoH) for further information. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) also issues up-to-date information on safety issues for countries world-wide. Contact the FCO travel advice line on 020 7238 4503/4504 if you have any concerns.

Please contact your doctor if you’re unsure about vaccinations. We advise you to take mosquito repellent to avoid getting bitten, though we’ve never been aware of any malaria or dengue fever cases in the areas that we visit. According to netdoctor.co.uk, the risk is very low.

Cards are accepted on Tavarua.
