Earlier this month (September 2016) I took a small group of guests straight from the Namotu Kite Weeks down the Coral Coast to Matanivusi. The resort is set amongst the rainforest beside the ocean on Viti Levu's windward side. Miles of pristine water, reef breaks and just 8 of us kiting.
I’ve been coming to this area to fish, kite and surf for about 15 years but a couple of years ago I decided to find somewhere to host kite weeks and Matanivusi was the obvious choice in the area. With some of Fiji's best surf breaks and kiteboarding spots at its doorstep plus world-class fishing, whitewater rafting and onsite yoga studio it is hard to beat. The Trade Wind blows really consistently on this side of Viti Levu so from July to November surfing can be blown out but the kiting is incredible. Matanivusi is close to Frigates, Fiji Pipe and a huge selection of downwind kiting destinations as well as offering an exclusive experience similar to Namotu.
Thanks to Pete, Stu, Laurel, Tony, Richard, James & Lance for joining me on the first test trip. After an incredible week of kiting, exploring the area and relaxing we’ll be doing it again in 2017.
Stu put together an edit (bottom of page) to give you an idea of the area and what we did during our stay. Find out more about this kitesurfing trip and see more photos here.
