Cloudbreak is a hollow, left hand, reef wave. You can only surf it if you stay on the Tavarua island surf camp. The break is way out in the middle of the ocean, so you need boat to get to it. It's best at eight feet. When the surf is too big at Cloudbreak, go to Restaurants, a hollow left over a reef, which raps around the island. Both waves are for experienced surfers only. You can wear board shorts all year round and the best waves are four to eight feet. Good luck trying to get a reservation at the Tavarua Island surf camp, it's mostly booked up 3 years in advance! It's American owned.
