Ride the Waves at Maalifushi

The Maldives are rapidly becoming popular among surfers, with some great long curving atoll reef waves. ‘Farms’ break is 25 minutes away on a guided boat trip with Tropicsurf. The waves here are medium-sized while more challenging barrels are also available within reach of the resort. Best of all, crowds are few.

Maalifushi Surf works with luxury surf pioneers, Tropicsurf, to offer easy access to some of the Indian Ocean’s most sought-after breaks.

The resort has a resident Tropicsurf guide from April to October, working with guests of all abilities — from lagoon training, where fundamental skills such as balance are taught, through to expert instruction when tackling some of the toughest breaks in the Maldives. As part of the surf programme, equipment can be hired and boat transfers arranged —  including to the famous ‘Farms’ break on the resort’s southwest side.
