Car, Bus
Access
Short walk

Take a bus from Nadi to Sigatoka (about an hour's drive). There are heaps of excellent and cheap resorts right on the beach, just North of Sigatoka River mouth. Most of them provide free pick-up from Singatoka, some of them will pick you up in Nadi at the airport. Very good spot for kitesurfing just East of the Outrigger Resort.

Extra information

Rules
None

Nothing yet, very few kites in this area as yet. Most likely you will be there on your own, or with another one or two kites, with kilometers of flat water everywhere.

Nightlife

Reasonable, with locals and visitors having fun at some of the resorts almost every night, heaps of bars, disco.
