The Maldives has the most beautiful beaches in the world and these beaches have a wild side!
Wild mean waves at the Maldives. Quite not all about rest and relaxation the Maldives also hosts the most prestigious surfing events in the world.
There are a lot of islands in the Maldives that cater to a lot on the surfing criteria. The best time for surfing in the Maldives is at March or October, similar to the surfing of Indonesia. But the biggest baddest waves are said to be found between June and August.
Waves in the Maldives are usually between 4-8 feet high, but sometimes the tides tend to show off and whip out much bigger waves. Many of the Maldives surfing breaks are reef breaks because the Maldives islands do have a lot of reef to go around. They both can be mellow or really massive sowers of destruction.
Surfers appreciate the super clear and warm water of the Maldives. This means that surfers can stay longer in the water and not get cold. Also the clear water and amazing breaks make the reefs visible.
The most famous of the surf spots at the Maldives can be found at Jailbreaks. The Jailbreak is a amazing right-hander in the North Male and Sultan’s.
The Maldives has been the proud host of the internationally-renowned O’Neill Deep Blue Surfing Tournament for the last three years. This is testimonial to the surfing prowess and promise of the Maldives!
