"4 surf breaks within a short boat ride"

Relax in the spa do some yoga or Tai Chi or hit the uncrowded surf for some amazing action with 4 surf breaks within a short boat ride , where you will find a right-hander at Airport Lights where nice barrels are available, and a good lefthander at Vilingili/Madihera that can change from gentle to powerful within a few meters.
