Budget to mid-range Maldives holiday offers
Grabbing your own little slice of surf paradise doesn't have to cost the earth as the budget to mid-range Maldives surf camp choices prove. Vibes are distinctly social, camps are typically beachfront and the iconic Maldives waves are either directly on your doorstep or easily accessed through spot transfers.
Surf and relax in Maldives surf camps
Your days can be as surf crammed as your energy levels allow and your evenings spent making new friends, sharing some quality time with your own party or simply star gazing and marveling at the little tropical heaven you have landed yourself in.
When riding crystal barrels wears thin (as if!), when taking a well earned break or after the sun sets, there is plenty to keep you occupied with a range of facilities and downtime choices offered at your chosen Maldives surf camp. Grab yourself a massage to soothe those surf weary limbs, sun yourself at the pool, sink beneath the waves scuba diving or head out on a fishing/dolphin-watching/snorkeling excursion.
Best places to surf in Maldives
Most of the Maldives surf camps place you in the North and South Male Atolls – the hub of Maldives surfing and where many of the famous name breaks can be found with much in the world-class category.
May to October sees the most consistent and biggest swells but the Maldives can be surfed all year round. A challenging coral reef playground in decent size swells, producing typically hollow and powerful waves well-suited to keeping high level surfers occupied and happy, the Maldives can also show a more playful side. This means there are breaks suited to less experienced surfers as well as something for Mal riders, SUP boarders and body-boarders.
All the Maldives surf camp options offer daily surf transfers and enough breaks within easy reach to keep ringing the wave-riding changes if you like variety or a new challenge every day. There are even camps where the waves are so close that the moment of leaping out of bed to stroking into your first barrel of the day can all occur within minutes.
All this AND the chance to spend your entire surf vacation in board shorts surrounded by some of the most breathtakingly beautiful scenery on the planet.
Social camp atmosphere or private retreat vacation
The rooms in villas and guesthouses which will be your base during your surf holiday offer both private and shared options with single, double, twin and triple room configurations. This means you get to decide your own level of privacy, with your own retreat space if you want it or complete immersion into the shared social camp scene. If you are traveling together with a few surf buddies then it is also possible to rent out a whole villa, exclusively for your own party.
Communal areas come in all shapes, sizes and types at your Maldives based surf camp – places to chill, lounge, watch TV or DVDs or otherwise kick back – places to spend time with your fellow camp surfers, swapping stories, enjoying friends old and new – places to spend some time in contemplation of the future surf memories which tomorrow might bring.
Surf camps are budget friendly
Anyone looking for a budget friendly option is welcome at a Maldives surf camp – young, old, single or families - but the social set-up makes them particularly popular with groups and solo surfers looking to take the lonely out of traveling alone.
The surf camps of the Maldives offer almost every type of meal arrangement from self-catering to full board giving you flexibility and choice according to your own needs and budget. All offer at least one daily surf spot transfer, some have options for coaching and surf photography and a range of extras, some of which are inclusive in the price.
