Tavarua, Fiji

Surfing in Tavarua, Fiji

Why Go Now: Duuuuude—it’s not an act. Paddling a surfboard is proven to reduce stress—midlife or otherwise—while cultivating that six-pack that never really happened. Pacific Islanders, meanwhile, believe the ocean is the source of youth. The tiny Fijian island, which fits just 36 guests at a time, is at the base of Cloudbreak, one of the biggest surf breaks in the world, and Tavarua staffs some of the best surf instructors around. Learn to hang ten, or just play Gilligan for a week with a book and a mai tai.
