Sigatoka Rivermouth

Edit Spot

This place is great, as it offers for all skill levels. It can be a placid wave on smaller swells and be extremely challenging on the larger swells when the wave starts breaking at the reef and peels left across the rivermouth for over 300m. A welcome relief from reef weary surfers wanting just to have fun. After a surf, kick back with the local crew at Club Masa for a few brews or kava.

Additional Info:
Sigatoka Beach is the foreshore for the Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park, the only proper sand dunes on Viti Levu and of important historical and cultural significance. NO LITTERING OR RUBBISH IS TO BE LEFT ON THE BEACH! It is open to all westerly swells from deep water close offshore. When you get there through the maze of dirt tracks, park at Club Masa. They generally ask for a $1 fee, but payment in mangoes are accepted as they do not grow well in the sand. The rivermouth is predominantly a challenging left hander with rights into the Sigatoka River on higher tides and during the rainy season. The river mouth Brak is awesome. the beach brak is best in the morning - early - once the wind comes up it is ugly.


Head south from Nadi on the main highway to Suva. A few kilometres after you pass the Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park visitors centre, turn right just after the railway bridge. Stay on the dirt track that leads to Club Masa surf resort at the end of the track.The gate is closed at the village which leads to Club Masa. You must walk about a k to Club Masa and a further 500m to the beach. You have to pay the local villagers 2 or 3 dollars to park. Club Masa is without power and run down, the owner has not paid the Village its promised commission hense that closure of the gate - so the locals say. You can still stay at Club Masa for about 22 dollars per night including food.
