Food and Drink

Food is a mix of local and western dishes, with plenty of it to refuel you after surfing up to eight hours per day. The Chef on the Handhu Falhi is committed to preparing you a hearty meal using fresh local ingredients. Here you will find an example menu - trust us you won’t go hungry.

Breakfast: A light breakfast is usually served before an early surf to get you in the water sooner. Cereal, fruit tea and coffee will be laid out early and you help yourself before hitting the waves. This is usually followed by a hot breakfast served after your morning waves. Try toast, eggs, sausage, baked beans, coffee and tea plus everything your body craves after a morning of hard surfing.

Lunch: For lunch you’ll be served a range of dishes but typically you can expect – pasta, salads and vegies with meat and fish dishes.
