Located about 300 miles south of Malé, the southern atolls are the latest surf frontier in the Maldives, a remote, completely unspoiled and virtually uncrowded territory with surfable waves that allow quality surfing adapted to various levels of surfing.
In these crystalline waters, you will see more marine life thriving in its natural habitat than anywhere else in the world.
It is slightly different from the Malé and Central Atolls as it is much more exposed to the southern swell with nothing blocking when the swell hits. The waves here are generally the largest in the Maldives.
It is possible to find perfect reef break configurations, with large swell and wave consistency in the popular months of March / April and mid-August continuing until late October.
There are just a few resorts and even less boat charters, which means that the crowd factor will not be taken into consideration. The Southern Atolls are a true gem and one of the least explored surf destination on the planet.
The waves are selection of quality waves from heavy barrels to open walls super ripable. Some waves can be shallow and faster but you can be sure you will find your perfect wave there!
When it is working there is no other place in the Maldives that I prefer to be.
