A fun, user-friendly right-hander that breaks out the front of the Swimming Pool at Namotu Island Resort. It’s a short wave that produces perfect peeling barrels usually a bit smaller than the other nearby breaks. An extremely enjoyable, user-friendly wave for all types of surfers although like most waves in the area it breaks over a coral reef.

The best wave size is between waist high to double overhead. We recommend riding your longboard or standard shortboard here. Swimming Pools in Mamanucas and Viti Levu is best suited to beginner up to advanced surfers, with waves that are very consistent (8/10) and usually has a crew (7/10). The best winds for Swimming Pools are East and Northeast. The best swell direction is from the South and Southwest.
When surfing here in summer we recommend wearing boardshorts or a bikini, plus a wetsuit top in stronger winds. The warmest water temperature is a warm 27 degrees in February and in winter it’s 24 degrees we recommend wearing something similar; boardshorts, or a bikini, plus a wetsuit top.
