Kagata Surf Village
The Kagata Village experience is not your average holiday. This is a very special place and remains simple and unspoilt. The world needs places like this, to allow us to learn to slow down, to get away from technology, to breathe, to realise there is another way to live. The Hapi Isles Way
Kagata Village is tucked into a remote north corner of Santa Isabel with hundreds of islands that make up the group. This is not a 5 star resort. This is back to basics blissful island living along side a local village family. It's timeless and a stay here will never become a vague memory of just another bland resort. You can catch your own dinner, Dog tooth tuna, Spanish mackerel, mangrove jacks and mud crabs.
No phones, no sales pitches, no car alarms, no internet, no worries. Island time seduces you, eases you slowly into its pace . The "real" world fades. There is nothing you have to do. Just be in the moment.
Accommodation is a locally made timber/tin pole house built off the ground, safe and secure, overlooking the lagoon. Set just off to the side of the family village the guest house is private, you have your own space/privacy. You'll be looked after by the extended family and treated as their family, the girls will prepare fresh breakfast, lunch and dinner. You won’t go hungry, tell them what your favourite foods are and they will do their best to look after you…Organic fruit is mouth-watering, will keep you healthy and keeps you cool. Just let them know when you arrive if you are more vegetarian inclined so they can arrange more fruits and vegetables if required. The house now has it's own fridge for those that would like to have a cold Sol Brew after a day of exploring and experiencing island life. A new hut is in the process of being built that is large enough to house another family. Included in your experience, light traditional refreshments will be presented to you as you depart as a farewell gift, one of the many local traditions.
The village is has just finished building a new school that will be used by the local children as well as those from other villages. As they do not yet receive government support Kagata surf village now offer you the chance to assist these children in their education, please feel free to bring along school or sporting supplies suitable for children aged 3-12. The children are planning to start a vegetable patch as part of their curriculum, the produce of which will be sold to villagers and visitors to the area.
Staying in this wonderful place in the world, in relative comfort knowing that your money is contributing to the village and the villagers, in a positive and sustainable way. Win-win.
Solomon's surf at it best with no crowds, a great variety of breaks to chose from short punchy reef breaks and long hollow barrels and a standard to suit all levels. Surf travel is young here and there's still new waves to be found....imagine surfing pristine reefs breaks with only a few others who visit this remote part of the world . Watching line tear off your reel as an unknown monster screams into the depths. Snorkelling warm tropical waters, weightless over the everyday busyness of the reef, alive with colour and life. Maybe just simply breathing in the spectacular colours of the tropics is your style. Your other life will fade as you ease into the rhythm of the islands. Saturday is a day of sabbath so no surfing, it's a day to relax tried muscles, have a bush walk or learn about village life.
