Surfing at Pasta Point

Surfing at Pasta Point

This ‘wave machine’ is regarded as the best in the North Malé Atoll and has been an internationally premier surf destination since 1992. Get ready for some high quality left hander waves that peel along Pasta Point reef next to this resort in the Maldives. Peak season is experienced between March and October when swells can reach up to four to eight feet.

Other classic breaks – Sultans, Honky’s and Jailbreak – are less than ten minutes away by boat. You can see the waves from the resort, so you will know when they are pumping. When conditions are favorable, you can also try Chickens and Colas (about 45 minutes away) – boats are available all day.
