About 3 kilometres to the south of Dharavandhoo, it is the closest wave to the airport. As the name implies it is a right-hander that works best on a SSE swell with W to NE or light variable winds. Probably the heaviest of the few regularly surfed waves in the atoll, it is for intermediate to advanced surfers only.
Five Islands is another righthander that breaks hard and hollow on the shallow reef inside. The outside section encourages deep takeoffs into racy walls and handles the biggest swells at all tides.
This left is the standout wave in the region, and is considered world class. It is best on a SSE to SE swell and N to NNE wind.
One of the most consistent waves of North Male Atoll off the island of Thanburudhoo which is uninhabited. This is an excellent, long, world-class left-hander. Its mirror, Sultans, breaks on the other side of the island.

The main area the Sojourn will cover is the Male and Northern Atolls, of Baa, Raa and Lhaviyani. The area is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, which consists of three separate atolls. The most consistent breaks are found in the waters off of South Maalhosmadula Atoll. The airport on Dharavandhoo Island which services the area is 115 kilometres to the north of Male. The region is largely unexplored. There are currently 13 named breaks on Baa Atoll, but only 4 are surfed on a regular basis. There are 3 other atolls that can be reach within a day by boat from Baa Atoll: Lhaviyani to the west, Noonu to the northwest, and Raa to the north. Our boat captain is a Maldives veteran, and he’ll make sure you’re always at the right place, at the right time. This is a fantastic area for surfers who want to surf newly discovered or completely uncharted surf spots.
Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll - It is said that the Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll (also named Huvadhoo Atoll) offers the best conditions for surfing inthe Maldives. It works best in February to April and September to November. It picks up more swell than any other Atoll in the Maldives and from every direction. The Gaafu Dhaalu offers the greatest quantity and variety of spots. To almost every island on the outside of the atoll you will find one or two breaks. There is everything from barreling and hollow walls to soft and never ending playful waves.
