I'm not sure why you would come here unless you surf but it's a great spot. The boards they can rent however are terrible. Bring your own or rent one from the Nadi. The private rooms are simple structures with intermittent hot water. It has a great restaurant / pool area on the beach and two happy hours a day... More

Funky Fish has an incredibly laid back vibe. We were there to just relax while some other guests were there for the surf/diving, and it was perfect for us. While you can spend all day by the pool, I'd recommend enjoying some of the organised activities. In particular we loved the hike, volleyball and snorkelling. The staff at Funky Fish... More

Funky Fish is the perfect escape! It is very isolated, no shops or restaurants nearby but for us that was perfect. The resort had everything you could want, from a wide selection of food and drinks and daily activities such as trips, hiking, cooking classes, volleyball, massages etc! We were worried the food would be too pricey for our budget... More

We went with my 15 and 10 year old. There is no beach really, but you can snorkel daily and surf. The snorkeling cost 7u$a and surfing 20 to rent the board and around 40 for the ride. You cannot do this from the hotel shore do do your math on how much you will spend daily. The hotel is... More
