2km (1.2mi) from the centre of the fishing port of Tartane, the Anse Bonneville hosts the Plage des Surfeurs, the most consistent (although often messy) and best known spot on the island. After paddling around a large coral patch, mellow rights and lefts can be surfed, with some longer rides possible on the rights. A surf school takes advantage of the smaller inside wave. Out on the point, Roukoukou is a sucky, barreling left and right that handles swell, but not wind.
Flexible bay with something for everyone from lycra learner to pig-dogging pro.
