Surfing in the crystal clear waters of the Maldives

Long regarded exclusively as a honeymoon destination, the Maldives archipelago has already began its transformation to broaden the appeal of its idyllic setting and crystal clear waters to other types of guests.


During the past months, the destination has been booming in Australia. While honeymooners still make up the majority of travellers, Club Med have found that increasingly parents are interested in discovering the Maldives with their teens.

The trend has already reached the MICE market as the destination offers a one-of-a-kind setting for conference or incentive events.

What may come as another surprising fact is that the Maldives are actually a world-class surfing spot. Set in the middle of crystal clear waters that produce consistent wave patterns amongst idyllic surrounds, the Maldives is the well-regarded location for surfing getaways.


With the launch of the new surfing excursion, guests at Club Med Kani can now explore famous nearby breaks just a short boat ride away from the resort. Those various breaks include Jail Break, Sultan, Chicken, Cokes, and Honkeys, and the variety of breaks mean the Maldives are suitable for all levels of experience.

Club Med Kani’s location just minutes away from one of the best surf spots in the world, as well as the unique all-inclusive Club Med offering, makes it the ideal destination for a one-of-a-kind luxury surf trip. Known for its slow and straight waves suitable for professionals and novices alike, the famous Ninja break is accessible from the Resort both by paddle and by foot, and faces one of the most picturesque beaches on the island.

Featuring 75 suites perched on stilts above the turquoise water in the Maldives archipelago, Club Med Kani is a luxury escape set in paradise. The Resort, which has recently seen upgrades to its restaurant, boutique beach bar and reception area, offers guests an all-inclusive holiday where no luxury is spared. In addition to the new surfing excursion, guests can enjoy water activities including snorkelling, sailing, kayaking, and land sports such as volleyball, soccer and yoga – all of which are included within the Club Med holiday package.

So what about offering to your group a once-in-a-lifetime experience: a surfing trip to the Maldives?
