This archipelago is in the South Pacific Ocean, Fiji’s northeast. It is among the best-surfing destinations since it provides a tropical paradise, warm waters, and most significantly, consistent wave quality from April to October since big waves are made by the big blows down close to Antarctica, even though many swells are coming from every direction throughout the year.
16. Montanita Beach (in Montanita, Ecuador)
This small spot is unbeknownst to many travelers. It is on Ecuador’s west coast and home to about 1,000 locals. That being said, this hidden spot is famous for many surfers since they are acquainted with the place’s locals, who are loved as a friendly bunch. After their surfing, they may lounge around the bar strip of the village where they can take a fresh fruit cocktail or enjoy a Tibetan massage.
You know, China is not exactly accessible for its beaches or surfing, yet a massive island on its southern tip provides untouched tropical beaches with uncrowded, consistent waves. For newbies, Hainan locals can guide you to the most fantastic spot like the Riyuewan Bay or some lesser-known locations. Not all, you can recharge your body after your surfing by savoring fresh fish at a local cafe.
It was indeed made accessible in the 1960s as the surf flick’s location – Endless Summer. This sleepy town has bars and cafes that you can enjoy surf videos while having the most excellent healthy smoothies of New Zealand other than fresh cakes. Here, the bay features waves that can rise to about three meters from a meter with some occasional barrel as well as a mellow place for you to hang out while waiting for the surf to pick up.
