Waves for all levels

The Maldives is a perfect place for beginner surfers because it has everything you need. With so many islands, there are waves for all types of swells, wind directions, and tides. You can find different types of waves too, from big and powerful ones to smaller and more gentle ones. If you're a beginner looking for smaller waves, you'll love the protected areas where the waves are less powerful. These spots are perfect for getting started and gaining confidence in your surfing skills.

Plenty of Non-Surfing Activities for Leisure Days While you may be eager to learn and progress, spending prolonged periods paddling and in the water can take a toll on your body. It's essential to take breaks when needed. Fortunately, the Maldives offers a wide range of adventures and activities to enjoy both in and out of the water during your surf-free time. You can go snorkelling to explore the vibrant underwater world or try fishing to catch dinner with the help of the crew. Island adventures are also fantastic, from discovering deserted islands to visiting local villages or simply relaxing on an empty white sand beach under a coconut tree, surrounded by crystal-clear waters. You can customise your holiday based on what you enjoy most.
