Top 10 Off-the-Beaten-Path Surf Spots

When you think surfing your associations usually go to Hawaii, Australia, and California. But if you wander off the beaten path just a bit, you may discover the better side of surfing and the draw that makes the sport a lifestyle- perfect breaks, idyllic beaches, and no one to fight the waves with — just you and the wide open waters.



While you may think of Fiji as a honeymooner’s paradise, by no means does the island lack adventure. Namotu Left and Cloudbreak in the Mamanuca islands 20 minutes from mainland are some of the most respected spots in the South Pacific. While the name may conjure up images of lazy days on the water, don’t be fooled, these blue waters can throw you for the barrel of your life. Looking to stay on shore? There are some excellent breaks around Beqa and Kadavu in the Southern Islands. So go ahead, romance the waves.
