4 Days Surf Trip in Maldives

  • Just Surf Villa Maldives, Jailbreaks area, Himmafushi, North Male Atoll, Maldives

Maldives Surf Trip

Maldives is known for its warm and clear water surf perfection. If you are the type of person that grew up looking at surf magazines with double page photo spreads of perfect point breaks wrapping around empty tropical islands, then start packing your board bags - Maldives is beckoning. The North Male Atoll contains the most popular surf breaks of the Maldives. It probably also offers the most consistent spots especially during the period from early April to late October. The breaks of North Male Atoll are perfectly shaped and offer highest wave quality, pick up a lot of swell and have proven to be quite consistent.

  • Pure nature and fascinating culture
  • 2 trips per day to North Male surf breaks
  • Traditional local island with affordable rates
  • 3 nights accommodation

Hide all

All rooms are with air-conditioning and en suite bathroom with hot and cold water.

Every day, there are 2 surf trips by Dhoni boat to the surrounding breaks (Jails, Honkeys, Sultans) and depending on conditions, to the north (Cokes, Chickens). All trips will be organized by surf guide and Dhoni crew according to the group and guest prefences as well as weather, swell and tides. Just Surf Villa Maldives will do their best to coordinate all surfers with those conditions to get a maximum of quality surf time during your stay.

Jails - housebreak (right)

Soft, tropical J-Bay is how Jails is sometimes described, breaking off the local island Himmafushi. When its on, its a long perfect, multiple section right that has to be surfed to be believed! Even when its not lining up perfectly, its still a real good wave with barrel sections and super nice long and speedy walls for big carves.

Honkeys - 10-minute by Dhoni (left)

Its one of the best lefts in the Maldives, breaks off the same island as Sultans; however, its very fickle needing light winds and no current to produce a long wrapping left that actually increases in size as you go down the line. A must surf wave.

Sultans - 10-minute by Dhoni (right)

A fun right hander that has many different sections, Sultans is one on the most consistent waves in North Male Atoll. At 2 - 4 feet, Sultans is very mellow and a great introduction to surfing over reef with long playful walls and also some barrel sections. As it gets bigger, the inside section can produce some big heavy barrels.

Cokes - 40-minute by Dhoni (right)

Breaks off the local island Thulusdhoo. In a good solid S-S/SW groundswell, Cokes can have some of the biggest barrels in the Maldives. A shallow, powerful right, that gets progressively shallower on the inside. It is for experienced surfers only.

Chickens - 40-minute by Dhoni (left)

A long and perfect left. When its 2 - 4 feet, its a nice and multiple sections wall, which seems to go on and on. When its big, the inside section is a heavy barrel.

Arrival by airplane

Arrival at Ibrahim Nasir International Airport (MLE): If you like to get picked up from Just Surf Villa Maldives directly at the airport, let them know your flight details. Costs are 120 USD each trip. Depending on your preference, transfer time is about 1 hour by Dhoni, 20 minutes by speed boat, or about 50 minutes by local ferry leaving Male city daily (except for Fridays) at 15:00. Yet, Just Surf Villa Maldives recommends the Dhoni transfers to get into the Maldivian way of life. Even more experiencing the Maldivian way of life is taking the local ferry from Male. You would need to get from the airport to the city of Male and find your way to either Jetty number 1 or Vilingili ferry terminal. There are 2 ferries going to Himmafushi every day at 15:00 (except for Fridays), the province ferry from Vilingili which also proceeds further north to other local islands, or Just Surf Villa Maldives recommendation - the Himmafushi ferry from Jetty number 1 (Presidential Jetty). Both cost 25 MVR (about 2 USD) per person.

    10 out of 10

    "Can't beat this joint for value for money. One quarter - one fifth of the price as the exclusive resorts nearby. Ten minute walk and paddle to Jailbreaks. Accommodation is right amongst the locals going about their daily life who are super relaxed and friendly. Food really good for price. Great place for meeting people from all over the world. Awesome spot for surf trip."

  • Review by Ana Maria from Melides

    "I went to Himmafushi 7 nights with my husband and our baby of 1 and 5 years old. It was a great great experience for all of us. The Guest House have all the conditions that we needed, kind people and is only 1 minute from the Kaafaa Thundi beach. They organize 2 travels boats per day to go surf. I went with the baby at the boat and my husband was to surf in the marvelous warm waves :) when I don't take the boat I usually go to the beach, without shoes. No roads in Maldives. Just sand and sand and it is so great. The people that work in the Guest House are very friendly and they spend a lot of times playing with our baby. The local people are so sweet and love kids :) At the beach near the house you can also find equipment to rent, like SUP, snorkeling, etc. Thanks people from the House you are amazing! Be happy forever!"

    "Super nice place to stay in the Maldives for a surf trip! The only thing you have to think about is surfing (and there, you surf a lot). All the rest is done for you, which is very relaxing and allows you to totally disconnect from your daily routine! The host was super funny and well organized. He had a little crew of 5 local people to help him taking care of us: everything was always super clean in the villa, the dishes were just excellent (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and the captain of the Dhoni (surf transfer boat) was very helpful (keeps your water cold, takes care of your surfboard, proposes you fresh coconut when you get out and always has a little pharmacy in case of). It was very nice to have a land base in between the surfs: you have space to chill out and can taste the real Maldivian lifestyle on the island. Of course, the landscapes and waves were also amazing. I could not have dream a better surf trip! Thanks."

  • Review by Edskos from Rotterdam, Zuid-Holland, the Netherlands

    "3 friends and I from the Netherlands stayed here for 14 days and we've had the time of our lives. Great waves, great weather, great accommodation and amazing service of the staff. The food was nicely varied, especially the tuna steaks on Wednesday was amazing. The guys on the Dhoni boat really did their best to make you feel as good as possible and even provided coconut and Coco milk ice cream for the guests on the boat."
