SURF'S UP !

Off the beaten track. Uncrowded waves. High quality breaks. Welcome to Nature’s Playground. Welcome to the only luxury resort in the Maldives that has waves break directly onto the island.

Here the waves are relatively mellow and playful, but challenging at times and suitable for intermediate to advanced surfers with some spots perfect for beginner coaching. Expect a good set of waves and around five average surfable waves rolling out every five minutes. And no crowds.

Just off the edge of PER AQUUM Niyama’s Play Island you’ll find a classic, powerful left hand ride.  Off to the West and just five minutes away by speedboat is Kasabu surf point at Kudahuvadhoo Corner - a superb hollow right hander. Head East for ten minutes to Hocus Pocus at Maeenboodhoo Corner for another barrelling right hander. Or stay closer to the island at Vodi surf point at Niyama Corner for a good length left hander.

And when you’ve done riding the waves for the day, chill out in your customised Surf Beach Studio or Surf Beach Suite with surfboard rack and other surf amenities and necessities right on the beach at Play Island’s Surf Corner.
