Surfing in the Maldives

  • Great waves, moderately challenging, sometimes strong currents. Water temperature perfect (no wetsuit needed), weather usually great!
  • Not really suitable for beginners - no beach breaks anywhere, all reef breaks.
  • Surfing season is March to October - biggest waves in June/July/August. But surfable waves in the off season - just much smaller.
  • Choose from island lifestyle or surf boat cruises.
  • Two main island resorts for surfers - Lohifushi (now called Huduran Fushi) Island Resort or Pasta Point (Tari Village) in the Maldivian Northern Atoll.
  • Can surf in the Southern Atoll of the Maldives also - takes two days to get there by boat from airport, or 1 hour to fly.
  • Close to Dubai - only a 4 hour flight from Dubai to Male airport (capital of the Maldives) - a bit longer if you have a stop in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
  • See travel section in forum for more Maldives surfing discussion and information.
  • See photo archive for photos from previous trips to the Maldives.

Lohifushi Island Surf Resort (or Lohifushi Surf Resort)

  • Well, all good things must come to an end. It was a good value for money kind of deal but they closed down for renovations late 2005 or early 2006 and will reopen as a more expensive more luxurious 4 star surf resort in Dec 2006. Not the place for bargain hunters anymore but maybe there'll still be some reasonable package deals.
  • The renamed Huduran Fushi Island Resort is scheduled to open Dec 2006. The Surf Travel Co is doing surf packages to Huduran Fushi which include bed, food, alcohol (yes, you read that right!). This according to advertisement in Tracks magazine, didn't see boat trips included.
