This wave works best when the wind is from a north to easterly direction. This left hander becomes perfect – hollow and rippable. It usually picks up more swell than Kasabu as it is perfectly exposed to south and southwest swells. The wave is suitable for the intermediate to advanced surfers when it gets bigger. Even when the swell is small, the waves are still really fun and caters to longboards, funboards and beginner surfers. The best part of all – you can reach this wave from land by simply walking to the point and paddling out – no boat transfer needed. Also, upon request we’ll do our best to get you a Beach Villa as close to the spot as possible.
This is the spot to surf in west to northwesterly winds. Kasabu is located on the opposite side of the channel from Niyama’s Play island, approximately 10 minutes away by boat. The reef is perfectly shaped and offers a long world class right hand wave suited for intermediate to advanced surfers. Up towards the lagoon the wave fades out and is more user friendly but still really enjoyable. In medium sized swells, intermediate and advanced surfers can enjoy the corner where the wave wraps around the point offering long, rippable walls, and a barrel section.
There are a number of other surf spots in and around the Dhaalu Atoll that can be explored during your stay at Niyama. Mad and Swirl are located north west of Niyama and can be reached by boat. East of Niyama offers more spots such as Hocus Pocus, Tio, Van Damme, and Candy, with Hocus Pocus being the stand out right hand barrel over a shallow reef. For those looking for the ultimate luxurious adventure, book a private sea plane to access any wave in the Maldives!
