We spent about 4 months in Fiji back in 2004 (we were on a sailboat). Did a ton of kiting and a movie with F.One in the Yasawas- mostly around Nomutu and Tavarua, which are both private so a bit harder to get to unless you have connections or are very rich!. Some other great places to explore though: (this is direct from an article I wrote for Wind and Kite awhile back)
On the north side of Viti Levu (the main island of Fiji) lies a quaint little European village with a kickback lifestyle, beautiful sunsets and the most reliable winds in Fiji. Get a group together, rent one of the cottages for 80 bucks a day and let the trades blow you around a spectacular lagoon. While most riders come to Fiji for the waves, this is a little-known flatwater spot that is sure to please and easy to reach from the mainland.
SEKAWA BEACH, S. VANUA LEVU.
The main northern island of Fiji is well off the beaten path and more known for diving than anything else, but we found a beach on the south side of the island that beginners will love. No coral, lots of black sand, favorable cross-on winds and plenty to do when the winds arenâ€™t blowing, a rarity in winter, which is the best time to go.
YADUA ISLAND, NW FIJI
Canâ€™t get here without a boat, but if you can youâ€™ll get the best of waves, wind, flatwater and traditional village life and no one puts up a fuss, unlike the more legendary Tavarua and Namotu isles in the Mamanuca group where the breaks are private. Check out your charts and head across Bligh Water, through the Vatu-I-ra channel, a funnel for the trade winds, which impacts Yadua dead on. While most of Fiji is well traveled, Yadua gets you way out of bounds.
PLANTATION ISLAND RESORT, MALOLO ISLAND
Only a 10-minute flight or an hour ferry ride from the airport in Nadi, Malolo island ranks as the easiest kitesurfing destination to reach in Fiji. Tucked just downwind of the famous breaks at Namotu and Tavarua, the trade winds wrap around the point just outside your bungalow and provide good flat-water riding. On calm days you can pay â€œBig Johnâ€
