Pasta Point

An archipelago of over a thousand islands should definitely offer some surfing opportunities; when you stay at one of the best Maldives resorts these can be described as unparalleled opportunities. The pristine blue waters that bless the shores of Maldives have been the main crowd puller to the country for dozens of years. The locals have brushed up on their hospitality and cuisine to make a mark beyond their natural gifts. However, the vistas that unfold along every coast, the cruises between atolls and the fine marine adventures that are promised to every tourist are difficult to compete with.

In order to make every marine aficionado’s surf dreams come true, the waves and waters that surround Maldives work overtime. The wave machines around the country help create more adventurous waves for surfers and include reef breakers, point breakers as well as beach breakers. The North Mal—ź atoll has its own wave machine known as Pasta Point which is not too far from the iconic Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives and is more or less used exclusively by the dwellers at the hotel.

As obscure as the name may be Pasta Point is an amazing reef break which dishes out lefthanders which are unmatchable. The ideal time of the year to benefit from these four to six metre high waves is between May and August each year. The number of surfers who are given access to Pasta Point is regulated and capped at thirty; this makes it safer and more convenient for those who ride the waves. There are several other breaks within proximity of Pasta Point and can be accessed by boat, so once you have your fair share of the fun on the Pasta breaks, be sure to arrange a short boat trip to jailbreak or Honky’s which are right-handers and lefthanders respectively.
