 Additional Information

An amazing surfing experience is offered directly out front of Maqai Beach Resort. Staying at Maqai you cant get any closer to the waves they are directly offshore – no long boat rides to cut into your surf time – a 5 minute boat ride will have you surfing Maqai.

The reefs in front of Maqai are a surfer’s dream come true. Crowds are non-existent with warm water, lefts and rights. There are 5 awesome surf breaks located close to the beach ranging from world-class barrels to playful learner waves.

The right hander known as Maqai is the most consistent of the waves peeling up to 300metres. This wave peels in 3 sections, a hollow barrel up the reef to mid section , a more mellow wave in the middle and a fun wave for intermediates on the end section.

The left hander is a fun playful wave suitable for intermediate surfers.

When its overhead the Maqai left starts to break this is a wave for experienced surfers delivering perfect barrels.

The best surf season is October – May when the winds are up from the north.
