Tiny heart-shaped Fijian island located just off the western shore of Viti Levu; home to Cloudbreak and Restaurants, two of the world's best left-breaking reef waves; site of the Tavarua Island Resort, often called "the Club Med of surfing."

Tavarua breaks best from May to October, as Southern Hemisphere storms generate consistent surf, which is often met by side-offshore winds. Coral Sea cyclones from February to March can also produce excellent surf, but much less frequently.
