Surf Maavahi Surf Charters – Malé Atolls

A surf charter on board Maavahi gives you the best chance of scoring epic waves, sampling the best surf breaks the Maldives has to offer in the Malé Atolls. From novelty surf breaks like Cokes, Sultans or Chickens, to lesser known lineups that only the locals know of, you are bound to score memorable sessions all week long.

The surf season in the Malé Atolls is similar to Indonesia, with the best waves on offer from March through to October. If you’re chasing bigger waves, you’re likely to see more swell throughout July and August. The waves in the Malé Atolls are all in relatively close proximity, so you’re guaranteed not to lose too much valuable surf time while cruising between breaks.

Upon request, World Surfaris can arrange for a surf photographer to join your charter at an additional cost.


Previously off-limits, Jailbreaks is a long right-hander with three sections, including a mid-barrel section. When it’s lining up right, you can expect a super-fun 300m ride!


Travelling 20 minutes north you’ll find this fun right-hander which breaks off Kani Resort. It’s great for beginners to intermediate surfers. With an easier take-off, on smaller days, Ninjas is good for longboarders or cruising on a fish, and on bigger swells it’s lots of fun on a shortboard.

Cokes (Colas)

Cokes is one of the most well-known waves in the region. It’s a hollow right-hander which breaks at between 3 to 10 ft.


On the other side of Cokes, Chickens is the fastest left-hander in the North Malé Atoll. It’s a swell magnet and can handle swell from 3 to over 10 ft, with rides up to 500m long.


Sultans is one of the most consistent and user-friendly right-handers in the world. With long walls and barrel sections, Sultans has plenty of take-off spots, so crowds shouldn’t be a problem.


Quarters is a small, quick right-hander that works well in bigger swells. In the right conditions, surfers can enjoy punchy barrels in the inside section.

Natives (Foxys)

Breaking over shallow reef, Natives is a hollow right-hander suited to more experienced surfers. In bigger swells Natives serves up long, fast barrels.

Tucky Joes

This wave is widely known as one of the best lefts in the Maldives. With fun barrels and long 200 metre rides, Tucky Joes is one of the reasons you surf the Maldives.


When the swell is bigger, Riptides is a fast right-hander that breaks for more than 150 metres, with the occasional barrel section. It’s a great wave for surfers of all levels.


Kates is a fun, short left-hander with a steep take-off that works best in north-west and northerly winds and is softer on a higher tide.

Twin Peaks

With a consistent right as well as a left-hander, Twin Peaks is a swell magnet and one of the more relaxed waves in the region.


Located off Thanburudhoo Island, Honkeys is a super-fun left-hander with a mellow take-off, with a 90-degree bend offering a whackable wall. It’s fun, but not always consistent.
