Equator Village

Maldives: Southern Atolls

The Equator Village is the most affordable surf resort in the Maldives with zero crowds guaranteed allowing you and your buddies to surf the waves all day long.

"Everything for your surfing adventure the trip of a lifetime"

Located just south of the equator the aptly named Equator Village has everything to make your surfing adventure the trip of a lifetime. This simple unassuming 3-star all-inclusive resort was once known as RAF Gan a British Air force base, before being converted into the resort it is today. No matter where you go on the resort you can still feel the colonial influence especially in the restaurant that was once the officers club, and the billiard room. Accommodation is provided in 78 individual bungalows nestled around a beautiful courtyard and fresh-water swimming pool. The white powdery sand beaches that the Maldives are famous for are right outside your front door, and if you want to explore the island which is big by Maldives standards at 5 kilometers long, and 3 kilometers wide free bicycles are provided for your use.

"Holiday at the Equator village includes all food, free beer"

With two surf spots close by and very cheap transfers for groups available the best surfing on Addu Atoll is to be found by taking a 30 minute boat ride in ether a five person dingy or a 15 person traditional fishing boat, where you will find a right-hander at Airport Lights where nice barrels are available, and a good lefthander at Vilingili/Madihera that can change from gentle to powerful within a few meters. If you get a south east wind this can be an awesome place to surf.

The Equator Village is the ideal destination for a group of people, or a family looking for a tropical location where they can have the waves to themselves, while saving a bundle on their vacation. Oh! Did I forget to mention that a holiday at the Equator village also includes all your food with free beer and drinks!
