Top 6 Kitesurf Spots in Maldives - The Perfect Spots to Enjoy Kitesurfing

Maldives may be a popular honeymoon destination. But it also offers various activities that can keep anyone occupied. The location itself makes this island a truly unique destination for those who enjoy watersports such as kitesurfing.



Gliding on the crystal blue waters of Maldives may be the dream of many. That may even be why you booked a property such as the Adaaran Select Meedhupparu. However, not everyone who wishes to kitesurf may know how to engage in this activity. Thus, that is why Dhonveli would be the ideal location to begin your kitesurfing journey. With shallow, flat and medium waves, this would be the best spot for someone to learn the ropes of this sport. However, this location is generally suitable for any individual with any level of expertise. It is also recommended to learn the art of kitesurfing between May and October. This is because the winds would be between 15 and 22 knots during this time.


Full Moon

For many, the main reason for coming to the island would be to engage in the Maldives water sports. For those who consider themselves experts in this sport, there are kitesurfing spots located close to the airport. One such location would be the Full Moon, which is situated 10 km from the airport. With shallow, flat and medium waves, this spot is recommended only if you are an expert.



Situated 20 km from the Ibrahim Nasir International Airport, this spot contains medium waves. Therefore, it is recommended for intermediate kitesurfers. However, it has been said that this is also a favourite location for expert surfers.


W Retreat

With shallow, flat and chop waves, this location caters to intermediate riders. However, even if you are a amateur rider, this location would be ideal as there are lifeguards available on the spot. Moreover, the W Retreat's idyllic setting provides a picturesque backdrop for both riders and beachgoers alike, making it a perfect spot to soak in the surf culture and stunning views.


Olhuveli Island

This island is located approximately 35 km from Male and is situated in the South Male atoll. Therefore, while it takes about 30 minutes to arrive at this location, it contains waves that are suitable for any rider. Another highlight of this location is that the kitesurfing conditions do not hinge on the tide. The presence of nightlife also makes this a popular spot as there are many things to keep riders occupied after kitesurfing. Moreover, with food stalls located nearby, it is possible to spend an entire day on this island.


Kuredu Island

Situated 195 km from Male, Kuredu Island offers an excellent kitesurfing experience with its shallow, flat, and choppy waves, suitable for riders of varying skill levels. Even if you plan to spend some time in Male first, many resorts in the capital city can arrange transportation to Kuredu Island, making it a convenient destination to reach. So, despite its northern location relative to Male, don't be discouraged by the distance; the perfect kitesurfing conditions here are complemented by high tides and prevailing eastward winds.
