Fiji Malolo Island Beach Resort, Mamanucas

Monday, January 24th, 2011

This is a truly Fijian experience: a resort on a beautiful white beach, turquoise-coloured water, coral reefs and coconut palm trees lining the beach. The bures are tastefully furnished in beautiful Fijian style, so that when you enter your bure you immediately feel at home and never want to leave again. This is real paradise. You can snorkel or go canoeing or sailing, or you just hang out on the beach and enjoy. Loved the restaurant up in the jungle and also the kids’ area. Reminded me of Tarzan and Jane and what an adventurous place for the kids. The service is good and the women are so great with the little ones, too. Not too far from Denarau, only about 2 hours on the ferry, and it is an awesome ride through the Mamanuca islands.

Beautiful North Side Surf Beaches – Oahu, Hawaii

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

When we drove around Oahu to see all the sights of the Island we decided to have a quick break at a beach on the north side of Oahu. But once we all got into our swimming suits and went down to the water we found out that this wasn’t going to be a regular swim. The waves there were about 3-4 metres high which was huge for us. We had tons of fun bodysurfing and getting smashed around by the waves which was just an epic experience for me.  But this was not the highest these waves got we found out after. Because in the summer season these waves get to 6-8 metres high and surf competitions take place on beaches in that location. Even though the waves were not as big as they could get in winter. Back when I was there, they were big enough for me. I had so much fun in those waves and I think that it’s definitely a place to visit in Hawaii.
