Surf the Remote Southern Atolls with Maavahi

Maavahi is an excellent charter operating in the remote Southern Atolls. Offering shared and private charters for single travelers and groups, Maavahi is an excellent value surf charter for those wanting to experience more remote surf!

Catering for up to 12 surfers across 6 guest cabins, Maavahi is a well-run charter, managed by an experienced team. Jump on board and enjoy perfect, tropical surf with Maavahi!

The Boat

The Maavahi is an 85ft long and 27ft wide traditional Maldivian charter. The boat’s size makes it perfect for navigating the tight and shallow reef passes that frequent the Maldives archipelago.

The living areas are spread across three decks with seven beautiful, well-furnished air-conditioned ensuite cabins. The charter has indoor and outdoor dining areas with space for 12 persons.

Maavahi is a specialized charter with a shallow hull, meaning it can anchor very close to the break. It has a centre console speedboat and a tender servicing the boat. This is a great size and excellent value-for-money surf charter for solo travelers and groups!

The Surf

The Maavahi is always located in the remote Southern Atolls for the surf season of February – November. As the region has very few surf camps, charters, and resorts, you’ll usually find the quietest surf in the Maldives here!

There are waves for all levels and tastes in the area. Blue Bowls, a well-shaped right-hand reef, that holds most sizes and can deal with SW winds. Love Charms, a long left-hander, that can break for up to 200m on a good day. Tiger Stripes, a beautiful left-hander that breaks quickly on a shallow reef with Antiques, an intermediate-friendly right-hander that breaks across the channel.

There are more spots to be left un-named but trust us, you’ll love the waves here!

We booked a trip to Niyama Maldives (13 - 20 May 2022) with Awave.

Before deciding to go to Niyama I had close contact with Giulia about what would be the best resort for that season. Giulia responded almost immediately and gave us good and detailled advice about the surf and of course also about the resort.

We had a great trip! The resort was just prefect as well as the service! Unfortunately the waves were a bit choppy and the wind cross/ onshore, but that's mother nature....... (and May is a very difficult month for the Maldives). We still surfed every day in fun size waves and had a great time.

Would definitely recommend Niyama as well as booking with Awave!

Great communication, fantastic care and attention from James who is very knowledgeable and approachable, and the product recommended to us as an alternative, Ayada, was a real paradise. We had very high expectations and we were really impressed with everything (apart from the the quality of the surfboards for hire). :)
