Maldives Southern Atolls

Book your exotic and luxury surf trip with the #1 Experts for the Maldives

The Southern Atolls Are A True Surfer’s Dream

Warm crystal waters (strictly boardshorts only attire), tropical paradise beaches, dazzling marine life and un-crowded world class surf. We probably have to say nothing more to grab your attention but those are just the headlines – when talking about holidaying and surfing in the Southern Atolls of the Maldives a bunch of superlatives are required that for once are not just tourist hype but the real deal. There isn't much around other than empty world class waves, a few resorts and even fewer boat charters. More exposed to the far-traveling Southern groundswells the Southern Atolls have a more extended surf season that starts in early February and doesn't end until November. There is everything from heavy barrels to steep walls and ultra rippable corners in the world's most beautiful and idyllic backyard with no one else around.

6 Reasons Why You Can Find The Perfect Surf Spot in Maldives Southern Atolls


The Southern Atolls are the Maldives’ swell magnet

The Southern Atolls are the region that picks up the most swell from every direction, the result being highly consistent conditions and well-groomed surf. Although year-round surfing is possible here, the optimum season for surfing the Southern Atolls is considered to be March – April, and September to November when the south facing spots are at their best. In May-August, when these spots are affected by predominantly southerly winds, the east facing spots may be more favorable although these typically receive less swell.


The Southern Atolls are home to some of the Maldives best waves

There are a host of named high-quality spots including Love Charms, Tiger Stripes, Blue Bowls and Castaways – predominantly left-handers - and countless more left and right breaking secret spots and unnamed gems. Gaafu Dhaalu, the southern half of the Huvadhoo Atoll, is often described in surfing circles as offering up the country's best conditions, with the highest quantity and widest wave variety found throughout the Maldives. If tricky and challenging get your adrenalin pumping then the hollow-sectioned, heavy, powerful waves slamming over shallow reef are going to appeal. If on the other hand, you are looking for rides of the soft and playful type or longboard suitable waves then you are also going to be kept happy.


You find a surf charter paradise in the Maldives Southern Atolls

There’s not much other than really amazing surf, and the best way to explore it all is by boat. Southern Atoll surf trips are particularly popular with groups both small and large because they offer the very real possibility of a surf-mates-only trip with a boat all to yourselves – some boats start with as few as 4 to 6 surfers on board. Surf charters offered by Southern Atoll surf operators come in a wide variety of types and sizes, small and intimate with that addictive traditional Maldivian charm.


Get to experience that true Maldivian paradise feel

The beaches are silky white sand and the crystal clear quality of the waters, combined with incredibly rich marine life in every color of the rainbow, makes for a snorkeling and scuba-diving heaven. There's not a high rise building in sight and sound is mostly of the breaking wave and sighing wind variety. The word “paradise” gets dropped on a daily but no other place deserves the label quite like the Southern Atolls in the Maldives.


Ultimate Luxury aboard and on land

Almost all the trips offered by our Southern Atoll surf operators come in the form of surf boat charters with a hint of sophisticated and luxurious surf resorts added to the mix. Full on pampering, fine dining and exclusive services can be found onboard and on land. The few resorts found in the South offer a parallel world comprised of luxury and breathtaking surroundings most of us can only dream of.


In the Southern Atolls, you are in-sync with the ocean

Surfing holidays in the Southern Atolls are all about the ocean – playing and living on, in and under it......letting time slow down......kicking back. When you're not surfing you can spend your time fishing, snorkeling, diving, whale and dolphin watching or simply ocean gazing and sunset watching – quite possibly having to pinch yourself every so often to make sure this isn't all just a beautiful dream.
