6 Reasons For Surf Holidays in the Maldives Central Atolls


Consistent Waves Almost All Year Around

Surfing in the Central Atolls – namely Thaa Atoll, Laamu Atoll, and Meemu Atoll – is possible year-round in warm tropical waters requiring boardshorts only. However, the best season is considered to be from April/May to October when the largest swells arrive (the same which fire up Indonesia's surf spots), peaking from June to August, during the south-west monsoon season. Waves on these coral reef breaks range from super-fast spitting barrels, suitable for only the bravest hearted, through to smaller, more fun-focused options including longboard and SUP suitable waves, depending on swell size, time of year and surf spot.


Uncrowded Waves In The Central Atolls

Surf trips to the Central Atolls are all about escaping the northern hordes and finding yourself some consistent uncrowded waves which typically, in true Maldivian tradition, means plenty of pristine barrels. Although the Central Atolls are well and truly on the surfing map they offer the chance to escape the crowds of the Male Atolls. Empty breaks are still possible especially with surf boat charters and the guiding and spot transfer services offered through our Central Atoll surf operators


Besides surfing your brains out there are plenty of alternatives in the Central Atolls

Lazing around in hammocks and on sun decks and/or surfing from dawn 'til dusk is the only aim of many, which is of course totally okay. However, once the sun goes down or if you fancy a break from the wave-riding bliss then there is plenty to keep you entertained. Snorkeling, diving, fishing and whale and dolphin watching trips are all on the menu along with a diverse range of facilities and services or you can simply play at being Robinson Crusoe – ocean gazing or wandering along spectacularly beautiful beaches.


A tropical Surf Paradise Deep In The Indian Ocean

When most people picture the most idyllic tropical paradise possible it is probably the Maldives they are seeing – coconut palms, dazzling white sands and turquoise waters. Central Atolls surfing holidays plant you bang smack in the middle of this utopia with its offering of high-class breaks and a wave riding wonderland. The appeal of grabbing a slice of surfing bliss coupled with luxury living draws beginner to pro level surfers of every description from solo travelers through to couples and families. The Central Atolls are a wave riding playground, offering something for everyone.


Plenty of Surf Charter And Resort Options In The Central Atolls

The majority of Central Atoll surf trips come as surf boat charters, once (but no longer) an exclusive option reserved for the pros only, where you will be lulled to sleep surrounded by the ocean and spend your days hunting down the best waves. While sleeping on a surf charter waking up to pumping waves every day sure is an adventure of a lifetime, there are plenty of land-based options available. Opt for one of our Central Atoll surf resorts and live in the lap of luxury for the duration of your stay.


Central Atolls Surf Trips are for everyone

You might be forgiven for thinking that all this heaven is only accessible to those with large bank balances but you couldn't be more wrong. There are plenty of Central Atoll surf holiday options that fall into the budget to medium range categories opening the gates of paradise to everyone. However, should you be in search of something super special, where just about everything you can imagine is possible, then the other half of the options cover luxury right through to ultimate, 5++ star standards.
