Rippling across the equator for nearly 5000km, Indonesia encompasses more than 17,000 islands.
What does it take to create a ultimate surf adventure? Exploration, exclusivity or a expedition? One surfing destination that is an ultimate surfing location is the Maldives. The Maldives only ten hours flight from London are a geological eccentricity nestled in the middle of the Indian Ocean; the Maldives are a series of ancient coral reefs that grew up around the sides of towering prehistoric volcanoes. These immense structures have long since sunk into the ocean, leaving behind coral islands of incredible natural beauty and perfect surf in a tropical ocean.
A surfing holiday in the Maldives is life stripped down to simplicity – bright blue skies, all-year sunshine and fantastic surfing. The country embraces travellers from around the world allowing them the freedoms holiday makers require without compromising the islands’ deep Muslim faith one bit.
The top three ways to surf in the Maldives include the luxury surf resort of Chaaya Island (Pasta Point) or the Hudhuranfushi resort. If you fancy heading out on a boat charter we suggest the Central Atolls.
