If you’re planning a Maldives surf trip and looking for some awesome value for money then this local island stay at EQ Surf Retreat on Muli is a great option.
This slice of local island luxury is based down on Muli, in the Central Atolls, just over a 2 hour ferry transfer from Malé or a quicker scenic seaplane journey for those looking to hit the surf even sooner or travel in a bit more style!
EQ Surf Resort sits on the beachfront, with a variety of room options to choose from. And, if you’re travelling with a group, you can even hire the whole property for an epic Maldives surf adventure!
Complete with A/C, wifi, full board meal plan and that stunning ocean view roof terrace, it’s the perfect base to go chase some of the less crowded breaks that the Maldives has to offer.
When it comes to the waves, Mulli has two spots off the island itself.
F1 (aka Muli Inside) is a fast, hollow right-hander which you can easily paddle out across the calm lagoon too. Mushroom (aka Muli Outside) is a long right-hand point break, and one of the most consistent waves in the area.
Included in your surf package are multiple daily surf transfers, which also include 5 other surf spots within an easy 15-minute boat journey of the island – catering for mid-level intermediate and upwards.
For those looking to travel light, the resort also has a full range of hire boards (from shortboards through to longboards) or you can always bring your favourite stick along with you of course.
So if you’re looking for a Maldives surf trip that will bring the froth factor without breaking your budget it’s time to head to get your dates all booked in!
