Surf with Us!

There’s another reason we’re considered to be one of the best resorts in the Maldives – our world-class surf. Magnificent waves and a policy of sustainable surfing combine to make Pasta Point at Cinnamon Dhonveli is one of the most sought after surfing locations by award-winning surfers from around the world. In fact, it was said that the father of surfing, Tony Hussein Hinde was shipwrecked here in the early 70’s and fell in love with the location because of its ability to not be affected by winds and its constant delivery of pristine surfing waves.

We are Green Globe ISO 22000, 14000 & 18000 certified. We have a strict policy of permitting only 30 surfing spots on the island at a given time while we also encourage our guests to follow environmentally conscious policies when they are on the island.

Maximum 30 surfers!

Atoll Adventures

In 1991 Atoll Adventures’ founder the late Tony Hussein Hinde selected the little resort on Kanuoiy Huraa island in North Male Atoll as the location to establish the Maldives first land based surf tour. It was chosen for one reason…..it’s simply the best location for surfers with the quality and consistency of Pasta Point and the proximity to three other world class waves. Much has changed; the old Tari Village resort became the luxurious Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives and Atoll Adventures became the most exclusive and comprehensive surfing operation in the Maldives maintaining the highest standards of service and sustainability:-
