Visitors can expect crystal clear waters and fabulous waves to make surfing a fantastic experience. Even better are the tropical temperatures, consistent swell and low crowds making the island a haven for passionate surfers.

The luxurious 5-star resort has joined up with Tropicsurf who are specialists in offering expert instruction for all ages and levels of experience. Surfing conditions are great from April to October, but do not worry surfing is fine all year round on Gili Lankanfushi. It is reassuring to know that beginners and first-timers can enjoy the smaller waves and empty line-ups outside of the peak period.

Gili Lankanfushi shares the same stretch of reef as the famous 'Jails' surf break, where the more experienced can push their performance. Thrill-seekers will love the challenge of the open tubes at Cokes, or the excitement of racetrack waves like Honkies, while mellow waves at Ninjas or in the calm of the lagoon keep novices happy.

State-of-the-art equipment can be hired at Gili Lankanfushi's new Surf Shack, with all surfers might need, from special sun cream to protective clothing, on sale too.

It is also good to know that pampering and relaxation are available for guests at the Meera Spa located at the resort and chill-out yoga sessions take place daily too.

You cannot beat the thrill of surfing and staying on Gili Lankanfushi for guests requiring the holiday of a life-time.
