Only a few areas have the right combination of reef topography and orientation to swell and wind direction. Laamu and Addu both have surfable waves on occasions, but they're not reliable enough to be worth a special trip.
Gaaf Dhaal has a series of reliable breaks that are accessed by safari boats in the season. From west to east, the named breaks are Beacons, Castaways, Blue Bowls, Five Islands, Two Ways (also called Twin Peaks; left and right), Love Charms, Antiques and Tiger. They're all outside the tourism zone and can only be visited with permits from Atolls Administration.
