Surfing and Paddling

Got a surfboard or stand up, the crew will make sure you are never too far away from those postcard-worthy waves you’ve always dreamed of.

During the last decade, surfing in the Maldives has attracted many surfers from all over the world. The same swells hitting Indonesia deliver the goods to the Maldives except that the latitude is a little higher and the SE exposure has less energy.

The main surfing areas;

  1. The North and South Male Atoll, the surf season runs from April to October during the South-West Monsoons. The bigger swells run from May to August with 2 to 8 ft waves on offer all season.
  2. Central Atoll standard waves are long and clean with size varying between 2 and 8ft as well. During southern hemisphere winter (April-October), it’s pretty much never flat.
Maldives

Fishing

Fishing has always been the lifeblood of island nations and the Maldives is no different, this place has been dubbed the ‘fishiest’ places on the planet. Pelagic species are often the favourite target although there are a lot of reef and shallow water species that will give you a run for your money like Bonefish, Barracuda, Groper, Snapper and the king of fish, the Giant Trevally.

Cruising the deep waters along the outside of the reef Yellow fin Tuna, Dogtooth Tuna, Dolphin Fish, Wahoo, Sail Fish and Marlin all cruise these waters. If you want to fish make sure you bring plenty of your favourite lures.

GETTING THERE WITH SURFBOARDS & SUPS

You have a few options but if it’s Surfboards and Surf SUP’s you want to bring then we recommend flying with Singapore Airlines or Air Asia to Male who will both take boards up to 9’6. You will be met and assisted by your crew upon arrival.

BOARD STORAGE

If you want to take a taxi to Male or Hulemale you can store your boards at the airport in luggage room upon arrival – $12 a day, we will pick them up when we board the yatch.

When you walk outside the arrivals doors, turn left and you will see the storage office about 100 meters away.

 

UPON ARRIVAL AT MALE AIRPORT

Light weight clothing is best. Prepare for hot & humid conditions. To respect the Muslim culture women should dress modest covering shoulders & knees.

If you have time to spare the local ferry to the bustling Male City, approx $1US each way. The ferry ticket booth is infront of the Coffee Club/Burger King.

Alternatively you can take a 15min bus ride around to Hulemale it is much quieter. There are nice restaurants & cafes along the beach. Note there is no bikinis on this beach.

Hulhule Island Hotel just by the airport you can purchase a pool pass (bikini friendly) and have a swim and relax, something to eat. There is a frequent free shuttle to the hotel from the front of the airport.

Local mobile sim cards can be purchased at the airport if you want to stay connected.

WHAT IF I REQUIRE AN OVERNIGHT?

“Coconut Tree Hulhuvilla” Beach provides a comfortable setting while in Male.

It offers 4-star accommodation with air-conditioned rooms. The hotel has recently been refurbished and provides free Wi-Fi, an airport shuttle can be pre arranged with reception or take a taxi from the airport for $10.

The breakfast is very basic, I would recomend walking to a near by cafe ‘family room’ or ‘bread matters’ they both do a lovely breakfast.

 

“Simry Beachside Maldives”  is next door and another basic 3- star option.
