The Central Atolls of the Maldives have been increasing in popularity as surfers look to escape the crowds from the better known waves near the capital Male. The Meemu, Thaa, Dhaalu and Laamu Atolls lie 140kms south of Male and are littered with medium-sized reef breaks with Ying Yangs, a world class right hander, one of the biggest drawcards. There are excellent surf charter boats available to access the dozen or so renowned breaks and amazing resort options for those that wish to hit the infinity pools and cocktail bars for the post surf recovery.
