Bruiser from Australia
“Pasta Point is a great wave when it is on. When there is swell and light or favourable winds it is a long, mechanical left that is always fun and sometimes offers tubes. The best thing about it is that it is exclusive to Chaaya resort guests and they limit surfer numbers. This is not the case with all other North Male atoll breaks which are often very crowded with surfers from Lohifushi and charter boats.

Southwest winds which are common in the Maldives during the swell season tend to blow Pasta Point (and Honkies) out and you are restricted to the rights at Sultans and Jails which will also be wind-affected if the SW wind is strong.”
