The Republic of the Maldives or Maldives is an island nation, consisting of twenty six atolls. These coral islands of superb natural beauty lie in the Indian Ocean and are considered part of Southern Asia. Maldives enjoy a tropical climate, with temperatures around 30 °C/86 °F all year round. However, there is a rainy season, the southwest monsoon that lasts from May till November and brings strong winds and storms. Maldives is an idyllic paradise that welcomes visitors from all over the world, promising unforgettable holiday experiences!

Maldives is becoming a popular surf destination, as it provides long, fun waves and big chances of barrels. Most of the sites are accessible only by boat, but they are close to each other, so it is easy to find the surf break that suits you best! The North Male atoll boasts the most popular surf breaks in Maldives.

Honky’s is a favorite location among surfers of all experience levels, located on the island of Thaburudhoo, next to Sultans surf site. It is a reef break that offers long, world class waves. The swell size starts working at 1-1.5 m/3-5 ft and holds up to 2.5 m/8 ft. The optimum surf season runs during spring months. In addition, the best tide position is all tides and the ideal tide movement is rising and falling tides. The spot works well with northwest winds. At summer the wind blows offshore 7%, at autumn it blows 21%, at winter 40% and at spring 39%.

There are specialized companies that organize boat trips in the area, providing the opportunity to surf in more than one spots on the same day. Finally, be careful of urchins and rocks. So, if you love taming big waves, Honky’s is definitely the right place to be!!!
