Maldives Beach Break Surf Spots
Beach Break Surf Spots
Surfing in the Maldives is a dream come true for many surfers. With over 1,000 islands, the Maldives offers some of the best waves in the world and in the last 5-10 years the Maldives have become a lot more affordable and accessible with charter boats, lux resorts, and land camps.
Areas in the ocean where the waves break over a sandy bottom are known as beach breaks. The waves at beach breaks are constantly changing because the sand is often shifting because of tides, currents, and storms. You can be surfing flawless peeling lefts one day and close-out waves the next at the same surf spot. The surf break could be in one location one day and 200 yards along the shoreline the next. The constantly shifting bottom produces a very unpredictable and dynamic surf break. Because they have a softer and safer bottom than reef breaks, beach breaks are excellent places for beginning surfers to practice.
