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.
