Villa Reef in Praslin is an exposed reef break that has fairly consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Offshore winds are from the north northeast. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the best swell direction is from the south. Best around high tide when the tide is rising. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Beware of paddle, jagged reef, Man-made danger (buoys etc.).

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
