Chaaya Island Dhonveli 4

Diving & Surfing


at Pasta Point With a picturesque panorama wherever you look, excellent consistent waves, and absolutely perfect weather conditions, surfing holiday experiences at Chaaya Island Dhonveli with Atoll Adventures are hugely popular amongst surfing travellers.

In the early 70s the "father of surfing in the Maldives" Tony Hinde discovered the surfing potential in the Maldives and set up Atoll Adventures on Tari Village; now known as Chaaya Island Dhonveli, since then the Maldivian surf season has lured surfers, both beginners and advanced, from all over the world.


The dive centre Meridis Dive and Relax is newly opened with a new building and equipment in December 2009. Scuba diving is a very popular water activity here, because Dhonveli are located close by many famous dive sites such as HP Reef, Banana Reef or Nassimo Thila.
