Loads of Atolls and reefs, pristine crystal clear water, and great surfing: you'll need a boat though!

1190 islands are spread over 26 atolls, ringlike coral formations enclosing a lagoon, which gives the Maldives its unique paradise-like appearance.

They stretch for about 820 km from North to South, 130 km at the widest point and do not exceed a length of 4.5 miles or an altitude of 6 feet above sea level.

No more than 200 islands are inhabited, the rest includes the 92 tourist resorts and uninhabited islands, some of which are used for drying fish or other agricultural activities. Not only does it consist of the most beautiful tropical islands, but 99% of its 90.000 km² is covered by the sea.

The Maldives is a by-word for luxury, romance and tropical bliss; a beautiful string of low-lying coral islands in the Indian Ocean, and a paradise for watersports enthusiasts and sun seekers alike. The past two decades have seen the islands develop into a popular long-haul destination.

The country's 26 natural atolls offer nautical delights from night-fishing trips, windsurfing and scuba-diving. Many islands embrace enormous lagoons, where bright blue-green water laps gently on brilliant white sand beaches.

Global warming:

Yet even in paradise trouble can bubble beneath the surface. It is precisely because the Maldives is so low-lying (80% of the territory is less than 1m/3.3ft above sea level), so transparent and perfect for snorkelling, that their very existence is threatened by global warming. They are also particularly vulnerable to natural catastrophes, as shown in the devastating tsunami on 26 December 2004: of the Maldives' 199 inhabited islands, 20 were completely destroyed.

Political change:
Politically the country is today one of Asia's most progressive. After a 30-year period of autocratic rule from former President Gayoom, President Mohamed Nasheed was elected to the office in a democratic 2008 election, which made the Maldives one of the few Muslim democracies in the world. Since then the country has pursued a liberal-progressive agenda focused on improving the country's healthcare and education infrastructure, tourism development and environmental protection.

Surf Camps:

Line Up Surf's newest addittion to its line of surf resorts and camps is "Cokes Island Surf Camp" situated on Thulusdhoo Island or as it is Known the home and manufacturing island of Coca Cola for all of the Maldives and Sri Lanka.

Cokes Surf Camp is a budget guesthouse accommodation complex and is one of the first budget travel destinations in The Maldives. Partnering local Maldivian people, we hope to bring clients the ultimate surfing holiday with not just the fun of the waves but the enjoyment of spending time in a different culture, making friends with other travelling surfers but also the local people!

The camp is located about 30min speedboat journey from the airport in Male and features 2 of the best surfbreaks in the country in its Backyard! Directly infront of our guesthouse is "COKES/COLAS" arguabally the best right hander in the Maldives, it offers a fast paced hollow barrel over a shallow reef (dont be concerned, the reef isnt too sharp and its unlikely if you dont make a barrel out here you will hit the reef anyway)

To the left of Cokes across the channel is CHICKENS! another amazing wave, however a left! A fast paced wave that can go for more than 250metres on its day and offer barrelling sections and walls you just want your fins to punish! It is probably the best left in the Maldives for consistancy and quality...Probably best to hitch a boat ride there though as the paddle from Cokes to Chickens could take a loooong time!

The accommodation itself is more than suitable, with each room sleeping up to 3 people, fully air conditioned, bar fridge, Theatre Room and our newly built chillout deck to watch the waves with mates while you talk about the days activites! All meals are included in your trip and local foods such as curries and noodles are a favourite on the menu!

Wireless Internet is also available!
