MALE ATOLLS

THE MOST CONSISTENT REGION

The Male Atoll region is the most consistent, and is easily accessible from the International Airport. It is divided in two main areas, North Male Atoll and South Male Atoll, with the capital as a central reference point, and is located about 40 minutes from the first peaks of North Male and South Male.

 

The North Male Atoll has some of the most well-known surf spots, such as Chickens (left), Cokes (right), Honkeys (right), Lohis (left), Ninjas (right), Pasta Point (left), Sultans (right)... Perfect right and left hand breaks for surfers of different levels of experience. Most of the breaks are accessible by boat or, in some cases, a short paddle from the resorts, such as Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi (Lohis), Club Med Kani (Ninjas) or Cinnamon Donhveli (Pasta Point).

 

The South Male Atoll is more sheltered from the swell, but on the upside is much less crowded and still boasts some high quality waves, such as Gurus (right), Quarters (right) and Riptides (right), among others. These are accessible by boat or through some of the few stunning resorts in the region, such as Holiday Inn Kandooma and Anantara Dhigu.

The swell takes a contour line shape, usually from southeast, and the prevailing conditions are clean 3-5 foot waves; great likelihood of several days with 5-6.5 feet during a week-long stay.
