Food and Drink

Food is a mix of local and western dishes, with plenty of it to refuel you after surfing up to eight hours per day. The Chef on the Handhu Falhi is committed to preparing you a hearty meal using fresh local ingredients. Here you will find an example menu - trust us you won’t go hungry.

Breakfast: A light breakfast is usually served before an early surf to get you in the water sooner. Cereal, fruit tea and coffee will be laid out early and you help yourself before hitting the waves. This is usually followed by a hot breakfast served after your morning waves. Try toast, eggs, sausage, baked beans, coffee and tea plus everything your body craves after a morning of hard surfing.

Lunch: For lunch you’ll be served a range of dishes but typically you can expect – pasta, salads and vegies with meat and fish dishes.

Dinner: For dinner, look forward to a variety of curries, rice dishes, pasta, meat and fish.

Snacks such as fruit are available throughout the day and chocolates etc can be purchased.

Surfing at Handhu Fahli - Outer Atolls

Gaafu Dhaal - starting from the airport making your way around in a clockwise direction. Some of the breaks don’t have names so we have given the island name and some of the breaks have two names so both are listed.

Kaededhdhoo - Right, island with the airport on it. Has a right hander that is fun when the swell is large. It's on the west side of the atoll so doesn’t receive as much swell as the other breaks.

Beacons or Barracuda Point - Right, one of the most powerful and hollowest wave in Maldives. Faces south so picks up plenty of swell. Needs north-west or north wind so always better early season February to April. Pretty short ride with easy takeoff where you then line up for the inside and the fun begins. Best on mid to high tide and can be surfed 2 to 10 feet.

Dhigulaabadhoo - Left, across the channel from Beacons we call it Dhiraagu after the phone company in the Maldives as the island is shaped like a phone. A sort of fat ride on the takeoff and if the swell direction is right can link up with another section on the inside where it produces a bit more speed and power. Needs same wind as Beacons and can be surfed on all tides. Plenty of marine life around here and common to see whale sharks.

Castaways - Right, very shallow only to be surfed on high tide. When the swell is over 4 foot breaks out the back where a fun wave can be had and you make the choice to keep going through to the inside where it hits the shallow ledge and gets a bit tricky. Nice little deserted island in front of the break.

Blue Bowls or Vvoodoos - Right, long wave not so hollow but a lot of fun best around 4-6 feet on mid tide it is protected if the wind swings around to south- south- west which is common in April.

Gani Point - Right, also protected from south winds, gets hollow. Best on mid to high tide.

Booga Reef - Left and Right, a bombi in the middle of channel into atoll. Not so hollow but a fun ride can be had. The right usually being the pick needs west to north-west wind.

Love Charms - Left, great wave from takeoff to finish, nice tube on the inside breaks 2-10 feet needs west to north winds and can be surfed on all tides.

Rockets - Left, fun wave not so hollow but nice long walls to be had. Picks up plenty of swell and can be surfed all tides. Needs west to north-winds. Note: There are some more spots on the top of the atoll (Gaafu Alofi) always smaller though as swell is blocked from the east side of the atoll which sticks out past these channels into the atoll.
