The swell, tide, and wind - as any ardent surfer knows, this is the holy trifecta when it comes to surfing. When you’re surfing you look for strong currents and large waves - seemingly the opposite of the Maldives’ calm waters. However, did you know that the Maldives is a surfer’s paradise? There are resorts like Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives that are perfect for surfing!
If you’re thinking of visiting this tropical paradise to ride its waves, here are five things you need to know about surfing in the Maldives.
The Surfing Season
One of the best things about going on a surfing holiday to the Maldives is that you can surf there year-round. The season changes from atoll to atoll, but the peak swell is in June, July, and August. The North and South Male Atolls provide the most consistent waves and the season is between April and October. These months also provide good waves in the Central Atolls, but the surf breaks are more spread out and quite remote.
