Off the beaten track. Uncrowded waves. High quality breaks. Welcome to Nature’s Playground. Welcome to the only luxury surfing resort in Maldives that has waves break directly onto the island. Here the waves are relatively mellow and playful, but challenging at times and suitable for intermediate to advanced surfers with some spots perfect for beginner coaching. Expect a good set of waves and around five average surfable waves rolling out every five minutes. And no crowds


This wave works best when the wind is from a North to Easterly direction. Or with just a light breeze this left hander becomes perfect. It usually picks up even more swell than Kasabu as it is perfectly exposed to Southwesterly swell. The wave is faster and more challenging, yet makeable for the intermediate to advanced surfer. Even when the swell is small the waves are still really fun and cater well to for longboards and funboards as well as beginner surfers.The best part of all - you can reach this wave from land by simply walking to the point and paddling out - and upon request we'll do our best to get you a Beach Studio as close to the spot as possible. 


This is the main spot to be surfed in Northwesterly wind directions. It works best in westerly to northwesterly winds or with no wind at all. 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 world class right hand waves suited for all levels.Beginners can surf down towards the lagoon in the North where the waves fade out and are more user friendly but still really enjoyable.
