The lagoon at Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort is particularly stunning, and best of all has surfable waves just beyond the house reef: further sites can be reached within 30 minutes by speedboat.

The next day, the open ocean is the playground, with a half-day of coaching in the water and the thrill of riding the waves. All lessons include complimentary use of a Firewire board beloved by the pros.  

Guests return to luxurious comfort on the island, with accommodation for two in a beach or overwater villa.
