Top 07 Surfing Spots in Maldives – Island Life and Endless Breaks

The Maldives is one of the world's best surfing destinations. Look forward to endless breaks and waves which rise to marvellous heights. Listed below are the best sites for a surf tour.


The South Male Atoll - Enjoy the Longest Season

While many atolls on the archipelago offer surfing from April to September, the fabulous South Male Atoll with its many specific surf points features an extended season stretching from February to April, starting just before the southwest monsoon sets in. Even better; at the end of the monsoon from September to November, there are more surfing lures. Visitors enjoying a stay around the Baa Atoll at resorts such as Milaidhoo Maldives will find they have a wide stretch reaching to the South Male Atoll, to explore on the perfect surf holiday.


Tiger Stripes – For the Best Rockets

This is a very exciting left hander, which offers a rather complex take off to repay surfers with some marvellous tubes on the inner side of the break. Best of all, these breaks may be surfed with no regard to tidal times. Look forward to smooth breaks on the channel whilst westerly and north-west winds augment the wave with some very conducive surfing conditions.


Antiques Point - Nothing Vintage About its Pleasures

If the lefts of Tiger Point seem too challenging or foreign to grasp, check out the rights at Antiques Point. After all, rights have always been thought of as sub-standard in comparison to lefts offering smaller waves, more conducive to the intermediate surfer.


Advanced Surfers Head Over to Beacons

A site which should only be attempted by advanced surfer, Beacons offers the thrills of a very un-Maldivian type shallow reef to break on. And the reef is indeed quite unforgiving and a huge challenge; hence you must keep the basics in mind. These include the notion that Southwest swells are inclined to break right on the reef while the Southeast swells, rather cruelly, manage to peak and crash right onto the prickly corals, no forgiveness there.


The Interesting Voodoos or Blue Bowls

A rather extended right hand wave which tends to swell to average heights of over 4 to 6 feet, offers a break which is protected by South-westerly winds. Hence the place is a surfing hub at all times of the year. Just about all types of swells and tides in various forms and sizes are accommodated at Voodoos. One of the best Maldives attractions for would-be surfing pros, the smooth waves at this site are perfect for practising your surfing skills.


The Five Islands or Gani Point

Shielded by some marvellous south-westerly winds this is a popular right-hand wave. The hollow wave crashes right on the shallow reef, thus urging all surfers to look for a mid-high tide as the easiest method of tackling the tough break.


Love Charms

A reliable left hand break, Love Charms, lets you surf at any time of tide. Look for small waves, enhanced by eastern winds and the low tide. You will love the long wave, boasting inner tubes and a rather exciting hollow take-off.
