Central Atolls

Take a Surfari to Lesser-Known Regions

If you’re looking for a surf adventure to explore more remote areas of the Maldives, the Central Atolls are exactly what you’ve been searching for. With fewer tourists, pristine coastlines, magical scenery and world-class waves for beginner to intermediate surfers, this region is one of the best in the archipelago. 

World Surfaris was operating in the Maldives’ Central Atolls long before anyone else, and we still have some secret spots up our sleeves to share with you. When you board a surf charter in the Central Atolls, you have the opportunity to surf up to six atolls in one surfing holiday!

If you’d prefer to stay on an island, the famous Niyama Resort caters for everyone, encompassing two private twin islands, one dedicated to families, the other to couples. With pristine white beaches and crystal clear water, this luxury resort offers a range of fun island activities and is perfect for surfers and non-surfers alike.


Central Atolls

When it comes to exploring the Central Atolls, World Surfaris has been at the forefront of discovery in this area for the past decade. We love introducing clients to the Central Atolls’ world-class waves, which are off the beaten track, away from touristy resort areas.

Some of our favourite surf breaks in the Central Atolls include Malik’s, Finnimas, Mikados (one of the prettiest surf spots in the world), Ying Yangs (world class barrels) and Machines (as mechanical as it sounds). Travelling to the remote Eastern and Western Atolls will uncover even more waves that work in the majority of swell and wind directions.The reef breaks in the Central Atolls are some of the most perfect setups you could wish for. Surfers who are paying slightly more than a standard trip up north are often rewarded with empty waves and memories that last a lifetime.

Whether you’re a learner riding a soft board, or ready to charge big barrels, our legendary surf guides know where to find the best waves for you, even if it means splitting the group and jumping on a speedboat or dhoni boat to get you where you want to be.
