Naladhu, Maldives: A home away from home

by Mark Winson November 22, 2018


Book yourself into an Ocean House on Naladhu and proceed to enjoy a romantic week of doing absolutely nothing, just sitting on your expansive balcony with a good book and the surf crashing just a Frisbee throw from your deck. The rooms are more like small houses and are very functional and enjoyable to rejuvenate in. They really are the ultimate crashpad.

High rollers could charter Nirvana, a 55-foot Sunseeker Manhattan and cruise at 26 knots to other atolls in search of new waves. With two guest cabins on board, an overnight, outer-atoll surf mission becomes very tempting.

Tennis anyone? The courts are a 5-minute pontoon boat ride away and are floodlit for cooler, night-time play.

Book a Stand Up Paddle board from Tropicsurf for the whole week and park it at your private beach cabana, allowing you to paddle to and from any of the neighboring Anantara islands and restaurants so that you won’t feel guilty about all of the scrumptious food indulgences you enjoy amidst the seven restaurants.

For surfers especially, travel is often in the blood. Most of us aren’t blessed with tropical, uncrowded waves on our doorstep and so we dream of a time and a place where this can become the ‘new normal’, if only for a week or so. But for our Tropicsurf guides who call these palm fringed beaches and turquoise line ups home, we can’t help but wonder what their surf travel dreams look like. When the relentless travel between dreamlands becomes too much of a good thing, where do they go to recharge? One of our most frequent island hoppers, Ryley Haskell give us an insight…
