Thamburudhoo island (Kaafu)

Characteristics

Description

Thamburudhoo is an uninhabited island near Velidhoo. There are only eight modern bungalows built here that can be rented during the daytime. For special occasions, it's possible to arrange overnight accommodation.

Thamburudhoo, meaning "lotus island" is located in the best surfing area in the inner Male'atoll. It is about 1 and half hours from Male and the airport by normal transport dhoni. Two of the most famous and most wanted waves Sultans and Honkeys break on to the reefs of Thamburudhoo.

Eastern Reef of North Male’ Atoll: Excellent, long, world-class right-hander. One of the most consistent waves of Male’ Atoll, which never closes out, even on the biggest swells.
The take-off is a steep outside peak called ‘Phantoms’, which slingshots into a very long, walled, super fast section called the ‘Pinnacles’, over four feet. All three sections can be thrilling, almost insane tubes. Rides are 100 to 150 yards.
Best on high tide with any wind from W to N.
Access by boat.
