Southern Atolls

Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll (also known as South Huvadhoo Atoll) as part of the Maldives is located just above the equator and below Sri Lanka. Gaafu Dhaalu is only one part of the 26 atolls in the Maldives, but arguably has the most quantity and variety of waves.

It is surrounded by the Indian Ocean, Arabian and Laccadive Seas, which allows this atoll to pick up more swell than any other in the Maldives and in every direction. As this is a low lying country and is 99% made up of sea, It supports for an abundance of reef surfing.

The native language of the Maldives is called Dhivehi and is only spoken there, English maybe the second language but is high used especially for the consistent holiday makers and surf fanatics. Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll is nothing but beaches and waves, it is secluded and peaceful.

This surfing is recommended for the experienced as it is fast and powerful. As each island has its own reef encircling the island lagoon, which provides for the perfect opportunity to go snorkelling, diving, swimming and surfing. The reef protects the islands and lagoon from and wave allowing various types of underwater creatures and vibrant corals to live safely.
