Fiji Pro 2017 is the fifth stop on the Men’s Samsung Galaxy Championship Tour.
The surf breaks at Tavarua, Cloudbreak and Restaurants used to be closed to the general public, but some years back the Fijian government issued a decree that opened up surfing throughout the island nation.
If you’re going to watch the show at Cloudbreak when the World Surf League is in town you’re going to have to stay on the main island of Fiji- surf pros have the rest of the hotels well-filled. The Fiji Pro is held on the private island of Tavarua every year, so competitors fill up the on-island accommodations and even spill over onto the neighboring island of Namotu. (Here’s a Namotu island map for the curious.)
Don’t worry though, there are still a variety of accommodations available to fit most budgets. Plantation Island is one of the most well-located resorts. Factor in that you’ll still have to hire a boat to take you out to Cloudbreak to watch the surf competition every day, which typically runs between $40-$50 per day – but it’s well worth it to experience one of professional surfing’s most important competitions.
