Whether seeking dreamy spots to kitesurf or the perfect mix of left and right waves to ride, the North Malé Atolls never disappoint. A fiercely guarded local secret discovered by shipwrecked surfers in the 1970s, the spot has contributed to the growing Maldives surf scene. For those in search of easy, flowing waves (and bathtub-temperature water), there’s nothing quite like it.
During the breezier months of the year, from May to September, LUX* North Malé Atoll is a haven for kite surfers. Harness the power of the elements and glide across what is, undoubtedly, the bluest water in the world to sandbanks and peaceful beaches fringed with swaying coconut palms. The shallows and warm temperatures make this spot a playground for kite surfers of all levels.
LUX* North Malé Atoll has its very own surf break - The LUX* Break - ideal for beginners looking to ride the rolling waves a mere five-minute jet ski ride away from the resort. For the long-time surfers seeking the perfect break, the resort is within a 40-minute speedboat ride from the country’s best surf spots.
