Discover less chartered and secret surf breaks in the Baa and Noonu Atoll accompanied by our experienced surf instructor/guides. All surf breaks are accessible within a 5-35 minute speedboat ride. Surf season is dependent on Mother Nature’s mood, although it does peak from May through to September. Waves range from waist to head height. All of our equipment is eco-friendly and made from recycled waste, making us the first fully sustainable surfing programme in the world. We encourage our guests to leave their equipment at home. We provide full usage of our eco friendly and sustainable surfboards, sunscreen, and rash guards. All items (except for surfboards) are also available for retail.

Baa/Noonu Atoll Surf Trip
Surf trip to secret and uncrowded surf breaks around the Atoll accompanied by a surf instructor/guide. Water and nutritious snacks are included.
In the Maldives’ first hot glass studio at Soneva Fushi, we create beauty from what others consider waste. From bespoke glassware for our villas and restaurants to striking works of art, all of the exquisite pieces are recycled from used glass bottles from Soneva Fushi and our other nearby resorts.
Embark on an ocean adventure with Soneva Fushi’s Maldivian fisherman, Rocket, and his family to learn how to fish sustainably with the Fishing is a Family Matter experience. Rocket has been supplying fish to Soneva Fushi since it was in construction, he knows what the chefs need and knows where to find the fish. After fishing, guests can have their catch of the day prepared for them back at the resort using Rocket’s wife’s marinade recipe.
Starting at 17:30. Dinner is served at 19:30
Delve into our philosophy that places sustainability at its core when you tour Soneva Fushi’s Eco Centro and organic gardens at Fresh in the Garden. See the many ways that we use island-grown coconuts for food and materials, while also gaining an in-depth understanding of the principles of permaculture before picking greens and herbs for your lunch which will be prepared to your liking.
Kick your feet up and lie back on the cushioned lounger with your family as you catch your favourite classics at Cinema Paradiso, our outdoor movie theatre. The waves lapping the shore, the gentle rustle of the trees and the glimmering night sky will only add to the experience. An additional option of a barbecue dinner served during the movie is available at an extra charge.
Depart Soneva Fushi after breakfast and enjoy a leisurely sail to some of the incredible snorkelling and diving areas within the Baa Atoll, the only UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in the Maldives. Here, we may be lucky enough to spot turtles, dolphins and possibly manta rays (*season and weather dependent). After lunch, snorkel at leisure in the Coral Garden and enjoy a four-course dinner on-board Soneva in Aqua. Retreat for the evening to the indoor spa tub with the glass bottomed floor for a different view of the breath-taking marine life. Return in the morning to Soneva Fushi after a session of sunrise yoga on the top deck and a light breakfast.
